My Uplifting Valentine’s Presents — 9 Comments

  1. Hmmm…Mom’s caregivers are also using a lift with my mother…Mom has commented on how well she feels after transfers now.

    Keep well, DB and keep releasing those tears…it’s so important!

  2. When I get in one of those depressed moods, Ruth, no amount of logic is going to stop the flood of emotions. Even while I was crying so hard, my DH was telling me the same thing you’ve said, and I was telling him how he was right … while I continued to sob uncontrollably!

    I think part of the problem is that we have something to compare this Hospice to, and it falls very short. This makes the fourth time we’ve dealt with Hospice over the years (twice now with Daddy), and my expectations are higher than they are living up to.

    It’s so frustrating and infuriating!!!!!

  3. You release with anger … I do it with tears … but either way, it does release a lot of pent up feelings that need to come out. I’m just glad I’m not around you when you’re venting, Marion!!!! I’d be bawling LOL!!!!!!!

  4. I am so pleased that you had these gifts. Don’t ever feel guilty that you cannot do the impossible…I have done that myself but now realise that some things (like your Dad’s foot) cannot be helped no matter how vigialant we are. You are doing so well especially as you are only now getting the equipment you need. Take care, thinking of you

  5. Carrie! How can you say that!!!!

    I don’t know how YOU do it!!!

    I’m sorry it’s been so long since I’ve stopped by your blog. Glad to hear your Mom is doing better and that your Dad’s eyes seem better, too. It does sound like all your care giving efforts are taking their tole on YOU, though. I feel for you, and will pray for all three of you.

  6. HA! In spite of my best efforts, I couldn’t for the life of me figure out how to spell “toll”! It was only after I published to you, Carrie, that it dawned on me which “toll” I wanted! I can certainly identify with your Mom’s chemo fog.

  7. I honestly don’t know how you do this everyday. You amaze me. I’ve seen those lifts at the nursing home and they are an incredible help. I’m really glad you got one 🙂
