I have ALMOST made it thru this week!!!!! I keep tellin myself...."I think I can, I think I can!!" It;s got me this far so I'm stickin with it!!
I guess I need to update ya'll a bit. Bob got home from the hosptial late Wednesday evening. They put him back on the lovely wound vac machine and most of the day Wenesday was spent waiting for them to get a take home model to the hospital. Since Bob has gotten home it seems like it has been one thing or another. He is in LOTS of pain and not sleeping, which is keeping me awake and I don't sleep well as it is either. So we are both really grumpy and starting to take it out on one another. He is still really depressed, and understandably so, and I am trying very hard to keep him motivated and trying to get him to think more positive. But in all honesty, he is just "over" this mess. So we had a go round on Wednesday night and a HUGE one yesterday. If we make it thru this without killing one another it will be a miracle. I see now why so many couple split when there is a chronic health issue involved. I used to think it was just awful to fight with someone with a health problem they have no control over and they needed to be cut slack......now I kinda see both sides of the coin. Dealing with it is VERY stressful for eveyone involved. And neither party can truly know what the other is going thru and that inevitiable leads to some resentment. I don't want that to be the case in my realtionship. So I am trying to keep my head and discuss things as they come along and not let them boil over into knock down drag outs. That's not good for anyone.
And did I tell ya I started having car trouble again? We got my brakes fixed and I ahve a "low collant" light that will not go off on my dash.....even tho there is plenty of coolant in the car. Turns out there is a pin hole in my radiator and we have to get a new one. WHAT????? Apparantly it can't be welded or is plastic or soemthing....I dunno.......I just know we have a new radiator downstairs ready to be put in tomorrow sometime....hopefully!!!
