My husband has influenza. No, he did not get the immunization. He has developed bronchitis, sinus infection, and problems with his Eustachian tubes. Miserable is the best description for him right now. I can hear the high pitch wheeze with his every breath -- the sound of a distant ATV screamin' up a steep hill.
Early tomorrow morning I should be on my way to Spokane. My brother is scheduled for triple by-pass surgery. Nick lost his wife to breast cancer in late September. So, his support group would be his only daughter. With me there, at least she won't have to sit and wait alone. Sacred Heart Medical Center is a wonderful place of healing. He will be given the best of care.
Great Auntie-Fern will celebrate her 100th on Friday. I am the co-host of the 2 1/2 hour open house at her retirement center on Saturday. She was very sick for three weeks in February, but is much better and back to her old self. Pun intended. I took control of her daily medications, the results of which pleased her physician very much.
Some days my sister-in-law with Alzheimer's requires more attention. Her prescriptions and doctor appointments are also under my supervision. We recognize that she does much better with her own routine in a familiar setting.
My interview yesterday with the local CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) went well - I am now an official volunteer. With that in mind, I want to remind you that April is Child Abuse Awareness Month. If any of you have the time and the desire to advocate for a child, please contact your local CASA . The national web site is HERE if you are not acquainted with the organization.
I still need to find a part time job ~~ which, with the economic gloom & doom news each day, appears to be a much more difficult task than any of my others. (Do I have volunteers to write letters of recommendation? Smiles.)
PS. I probably won't be posting until I get on the other side of my brother's hospital release and the big birthday bash.
