My BIL leaves today for a vacation. Just a question. I haven't been able to afford a vacation for 3 years and I work full time, how can he? Now now Julie, just be happy for him to be able to get away. Shame on you for being petty.
So anyway we are going to be there more then here for the next 7 days. Since my back still feels like someone left a knife in the middle of it I am going to go slow and easy on the cleaning. Rick will do the heavy stuff. Hopefully we have the house in shape and looking sparkling soon.
I am going to make beef vegetable soup for supper tonight and also some brownies which I am not going to touch. We want things around to tempt her. BIL has left some great treats for her to nibble on.
She really looks terrible these days. So thin and frail and getting yellower by the day. One thing I am kind of upset about is all the meds hospice has her on. She hates taking meds and they keep adding some. I agree with the pancreatic enzymes. Might help her digestion. But why all the others. Aspirin, ones for her stomach, blood pressure meds. Her blood pressure is low these days, aspirin? Now they want to add Lasix. That will really drive her nuts. She is too weak to be running to the bathroom all the time and she is already pretty dry, why the lasix. They think it will help her breathing in the morning, but I think the side effects out way the benefits. We shall see.
My back is still hurting. I have only taken one of the pain pills, I hate taking them, they make me so tired, but it is nice to have it at night when I can't sleep. I haven't seen any improvement in my back yet. Must have been the last big ebay sale and all the packing that got it all messed up again.
Saw my asthma doctor yesterday. He gave me a couple of new meds as I was wheezing up a storm and he says my asthma in not under control. I could have told him that, LOL. Once the humidity goes down it will be better. I was hoping my lungs would be all healed from the chlorine by this time and I would be off the asthma meds for good. Looks like it is not to be.
Well, I will be popping in at times when I come home to take care of Zoey. We are not sure if we are sleeping there. Maybe one of us there and one here for the dog taking turns. She keeps her house so hot I will have trouble sleeping there. Take care all.
