Just Jot January – 2022

Just a quick update on the state of affairs in my world. Daughter is recuperating well. We were able to take the head wrap off her face but she still hasn’t eaten anything really since the syringes are too small. Today we go to the doctors and he will release the bands a little bit so maybe she can start getting some soups in her. Can’t live on Gatorade and water for too long. She is not in pain, just discomfort that she has to sleep on her back with her head propped up. It is giving her a sore neck.

Mom is in the hospital and refusing to eat and refusing to let them give her meds. In fact, she is not opening her eyes or talking at all. Sister is going to talk with the people at hospice today. Thanks to the nurse, I was able to FaceTime with my mom and told her that I loved her and that I wished she would get better but that if she wanted to go be with dad now, we would understand. She never opened her eyes or acknowledged that she could hear me but she did move around a bit so I’m going to think that she did. Once again I am SO grateful that we got to spend both Thanksgiving and Christmas with her here. This is from Thanksgiving. I can’t upload the one from Christmas. She’s the little lady on the end next to me.

I have some transcription work to do and an Etsy order I’m working on and I’m trying to practice my breathing skills so I don’t get overwhelmed but if I’m not on here for a bit, you’ll know that I reached my max point. Thanks to all who are sending love and good wishes. I feel them.

  8. Happy news about your daughter even if she can’t get much nourishment yet. Sorry about your mom. It’s brave to tell them it’s ok to go. A nurse once told me that the hearing is the last sense to go. So maybe it helps.
