|Robert - happy and doing...|
I don’t like to admit seizures scare me but sometimes they do.
You would think I would be used to Robert having seizures. After all, he’s my youngest brother and he’s had them practically his entire life.
Robert’s seizures have evolved over time from Absence Seizures...
Richard and I recently participated in a project created by Denise Brown, founder of the non-profit CareGiving.com, Chris MacLellan, founder of ThePurpleJacket.com, and Rajiv Mehta, founder of Unfrazzle.
Did someone say coffee?
It started with a caregiver friend keeping another caregiver company while she stays with her husband who is a patient in a hospice facility.
One weekend a few months ago, Robert asked me to find his pocket phone book. I knew we didn’t have this but I looked in his closet anyway. I told Robert there was no pocket phone book to be found.
Now that work is back to the “usual busy” instead of the “I’m losing my mind busy,” I am catching up on the non-urgent appointments for Robert.
I’ve been having a pity party (don’t take it personally if I didn’t invite you). Thank goodness it’s almost over, though – I am running out of refreshments.
So what’s been my problem?
Winters are a stressful time at our house.
I don’t like being the patient. When I am in the doctor’s office for Robert or Richard, I ask questions, I persist in finding answers, I think of myself as a collaborating with the doctors to figure out the best course of action to solve a problem.
Boy, am I happy to see you! I don’t want to offend 2013 but between us, I am happy to see 2013 go.
