Dad is coming home! Yay!
Everything is good. Ekg was great, all his bloodwork and vitals are good.
He has three new meds to take and today he was actually upbeat and resigned to that fact as part of his new routine. He really is hoping that the meds will be enough and his stress test in two weeks will show that the third blockage will behave. He doesn't want to do the open heart, and neither do we, if it can be avoided.
So, today is a happy day, full of relief to get him back home and hope for a good future.
Thank you for all the prayers.
Everyone with RA and Lupus knows what stress, worry and the lack of sleep can do to you. And, it is doing it. I am wiped out. My body is one big achy, breaky mess. My eyes are swollen and red. I have had a headache since Monday morning. I feel like I am going to cry, laugh and fall asleep all at once.
I am hoping to get a nap this afternoon, but who knows. If mom has to go to work after she gets home and gets my dad settled in, I won't nap. So, it is all up in the air.
My mom is realizing that I am starting to crack and she wants to help but her company has been in some turmoil and she doesn't want to have a problem there either. Everything like this always happens at a bad time, lol, as if there is ever a good time.
Your prayers and good thoughts have been keeping me going.
Last week before this all happened, I wrote an essay for this journal which for friendly debate.
