Hi, and good Sunday evening, from here in the Campbell Kingdom. Campbell, and I are glad you’ve stopped in to have a peek at what we’re up to. We’re always glad to know when you’ve stopped by, so be sure and let us know. Thanks for reading, and now, our tail)tale.
Being home these last few days has been challenging. While we’re both really glad to be here, doing so has been, at times, hard, to say, the least.
Firstly, there is maintaining. Keeping up with meds, meals, and messes, has taken much of my strength. I never gave thought to having to keep up with all that on my own. Really didn’t realize just how much was being done for me.
The first thing I learned was that, if I did not keep up meals, I could not, keep up with the rest. So, the first order of business was securing the right kinds of food. I got together with, Nice Michelle, and sent her to the grocery, with a list of, ‘Quick Fix’ meals.
Once food was on bored, I began to concentrate, on keeping things cleaned up. ‘Clean As You Go’ took on a whole new meaning. I couldn’t just give a lick, and promise. I needed to watch for infection. It was suggested by one of the more detailed nurses, I liked, that I make a spray bottle of bleach water, and spray, down, and wipe daily. I thought this was a good idea, but did not realize just how may surfaces there are in the house, I touch.
Counters, toilet and tub, just to name a few. For sure, don’t forget, door-handles. LOL! Keeps me a bit busy, let me just tell you.
Then there’s laundry. I don’t want to let it pile up, and take a chance on mildew, or souring towels, in this heat, so washing every other day has become a way of life.
Making sure all this is done, plus walking feeding, and playing with Campbell, well, all this is way harder, than I thought it would be.
Just today, I’ve come to realize I have, what is quickly turning into a major ordeal. As those who follow me regularly, on Social Media, know I’ve been battling a sinus infection, which started before I left Asbury Place Kingsport. On Friday, the nurse who was here, saw that the glands in my neck were swollen once again, and that I am also suffering from more congestion. She, called it into the doctor’s office, but neither she, nor I, have had any result from our calls.
When she did not get a response by Saturday, I called in and left a message too.
Now, here it is Sunday evening, and still no antibiotic on bored for treatment.
Dealing with all this, plus working toward getting Bubba Tails off the ground, I, at times, feel just a tad bit overwhelmed. My friend Phyllis, says, “Better to be overwhelmed, than under.” I just gotta say, Jurry’s still out on that one.
I suppose, I’m glad to be alive to have all this going on, and that old saying of, “I know I’m alive, because I can look behind me, and see the wreckage of my life” is true, but just for tonight, I am going to decree…
“All is well! All is Well! And All manner of things are Well.”
* Healed from my sickness
I Am Strong
I rebuke negativity
I sing a Healing Song.
Thanks for reading, thanks for the Prayer, and Blessid Be.
