Wednesday, Oops!




Here is a picture of Sissie and I.  I am not sure who killed who.  She worked herself to death all of Monday and then between jet lag and working like a slave all of Tuesday, I think I might have broke her.

I on the other hand  I had such a great day Monday, I thought I was really on top of the world. Tuesday was just a lesson in frustration.  I had a specialist appointment that led to x-rays of my sinuses and discussions of maybe not taking the drug I am currently on as its side affects are too severe.  The problem is I really like this medication, it is the best one I have ever taken.  I am not traveling several hundred miles to sit in an infusion center have poison dripped into my veins.  I am not injecting myself into the stomach with a needle on a weekly basis.  I am not vomiting or spending days on the toilet.  I do get many headaches from sinuses and exhaustion, but of all the meds I have been on this has the best outcome with the least invasive side affects.  But here I am fighting a horrible headache all day long.  We will see what the specialist says tomorrow about my new treatment plan.

The shop was busy today and I could hardly get anything done.  I was constantly interrupted and I felt like crap, plus I was at the doctor and hospital all morning.  I just wanted to crawl in bed and sleep to get away from the pain.  I just keep telling myself this too shall pass.

Mother was very weak today, but she ate well at dinner.  We are going to pick up meds for her tomorrow  and buy two small wheel chairs.  I am going to look on Craigslist and advertise for a elevette for our stairway.  As the stairs are a straight shot and a standard run, I should be able to find one used.

Sissie was able to get all my backed up ironing done.  But look what I did to her....:)

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

  1. Let her rest up and get her busy again.

    They have these chairs called transport chairs that are lightweight. However, they don't have a footrest. New, they are about $50. Sorry about your mother.

    Are you taking med for sinus congestion or for pain? I get pseudoephedrine, generic from WM, for my sinus congestion which when cleared up, ends pain. My sinus headaches are the worst!

  2. Oh dear.... poor sissy! Hopefully you will all bounce back soon! I hope you get relief from your headache; those things pretty much ruin the whole day!

  3. I find myself powering through and then bombing the next day. This past year, it's been story of my life. Every time I get some energy, I don't want to miss using it. There's always so much to do!

    1. Yes that is an issue. You feel good so you wish to get so much done to take advantage of the moment and then bam....Take care sweet girl

  4. I am so glad you have your sister with you to help and so sorry you might possibly be the death of her. (figuratively of course)
    I will be interested to see what you find about the stair lift. We could use one for Mom who is fighting each and every single suggestion of change as if My Beloved Sister and I are plotting and planning some nefarious overthrow by doing something like moving her washer and dryer to her main level (something Dad tried to do unsuccessfully for at least 5 years prior to his death) or having stairs and a handrail installed in her back yard so she can get to the creek. (Even with us holding her arm she nearly falls on the uneven path) Yeah we are that wicked.

    1. We have just not given mom a choice. We are beyond that. If she wants to get out she has to use a wheel chair. See how mean we are?
