He’s coming home today….

I’m overwhelmed and should probably make a list (I don’t make lists)  about all of the things he won’t be doing around the house.  I have to pick up the slack.  This is not a woe is me I’m going to be so overburdened.  This is a gratitude feeling deep down inside.  I’m thankful that he is the get things done half of our relationship and I’m going to have to step up my game.  i came home one night and thought I could smell the kitchen trash so I pulled it out, carried it to the trash can and replaced the bag in the receptacle.  Now this really isn’t a big deal but I haven’t given it a moments thought in many years.  He just takes care of it.  There won’t be any….hey, I’ve got an idea….let’s move that 500 pound plant to another spot so that I will see that I don’t like it there and move it back.

Oh..trust me…I will wait on him hand and foot and try to think of his needs before he realizes he needs them.  But, I also have to remember how I felt last June after surgery.  I didn’t want to be a victim, I wasn’t an invalid and didn’t want to be a burden on him.  I know how this feels…

But, this was a life threatening event….I had that bubbling fear that I would lose him….so whatever it takes is my goal….get him home and keep him healthy!

Until next time…..

  1. I’m thinking that your insurance could get you some in home nursing care for PB. You could hire a really hot nurse to take care of him. Or…you could hire yourself a really studly nurse to take care of him,. Either way PB would get well much more quickly I think.

    Oh…one more thing. Did you read “Misery” by Stephen King? Do not hire a nurse like that. Do not be a nurse like that. Just some friendly advice there.

    Good luck on your mission.

  2. The amazing and wonderful thing is that once he recovers from the surgery, he will be as good as new. How amazing and wonderful that he can come home and recuperate in your lovely, cozy home. Craig and I send him our best. Take care Nina. It is okay to let a few things go during this time. Remember to breathe and to be happy. Don’t overdo it.
