Saturday Morning Oh No

Hello Everyone,

Well, Saturday morning came and I was to wake up early enough to go pick up my son at work. The usual routine, Jerry gives me my medications early, I take a hot bath, get dressed and go back to bed. This morning was a trip! Jerry was having difficulty breathing and could not make hot oatmeal for me (it helps wake me up). However, I woke up, took a bath and went back to bed. I could hear his voice in the background as I tried to go back to sleep. My eyes were so heavy, my body was limp but I could hear Jerry...wake up honey, wake up, we have to go pick Tad up. Yet, I could not pick my body up, when finally he said "I will pick him up," I jumped out of bed because he can no longer drive. I know he feels badly about not being able to help out with the driving. He knows what makes me react, and that remark certainly worked. As I walk away from my bed, the telephone rings, it is Tad and he has to work a double shift. No need to pick him up! Oh yeah, I quickly jumped back into bed, did not even bother to get comfortable. My son is a firefighter and sometimes has to work double shifts. Today's double shift was a blessing for me.

I decided to get up and get some comfortable clothes on (pajamas) and slept until 6:30 PM. Woke up long enough to tell everyone I loved them, ate a small meal and went back to bed.

This happens to be one of the days my motivational self stayed asleep. I did not hear that voice make one sound. Hee hee

I hope and pray you had a restful day free of fatigue and pain.

I wish that could be me for a day. Too sleep the day away. It's too noisy here, I live right near a main street, the streetcar is so noisy.

I do wish the same for you, for all us. :)

Hi Tricia,

Wow, everyone needs quite time. I sometimes take time out of my day to just spend 10-15 minutes alone. It helps clear the mind.

Do you have any earplugs? They sell them at the drug store, not too expensive. I use those on occasion.

My son bought himself a headset that helps keep the noise out when he listens to music or watches a movie in his bedroom. Those cost a little more than I would spend on myself because I would not use them as often.

I am happy to hear about your dishwasher! Should help with some of your pain.

I hope you have a fatigue and pain free day.
