You want some advice?

Don’t panic, at least, try noto.
This too shall pass. We will get through this pandemic. In a safe way, as long as we stay connected.
Connection, that’s what we all need. Someone to talk to, to help us feel ok when we aren’t. When we are panicking.
Stay strong, you will get through this. There will be an end to it.
I know it doesn’t seem that way now but honest we will all be ok, at least, that’s what I keep telling myself.
My advice to you is, have faith, stay strong, don’t panic.

Gonna have a therapy session with Eileen tomorrow!

So Eileen just called us! She said we’ve been on her mind a lot, and she wanted to know if we were free tomorrow to have a session then.
We jumped at the chance to do that!
She spoke to Allie too, because Allie had sent her a text to ask her if she was mad at us. Of course the answer was no!
So we’re going to see her tomorrow at 12:30 and we’ll have a good chat then!
Everything seems to be going good for us with our team all being so supportive and first today dr. barry rang us, and then eileen called us to fit us in even after we couldnt do our monday session!
I am so thankful to have such an amazing, incredible supportive team around me!
Eileen is just the best! I love that she thinks of us even outside of our session time with her.
We are incredibly lucky to have such an attuned therapist!
And Allie is happy now too and she’s stopped worrying!

My sister and coronavirus

My sister works as a health care assistant. She goes into peoples homes and cares for them. Last week she started working with a new client, and, today her job called her to tell her that the client in question was in contact with someone who had coronavirus.
Needless to say my sister is very scared now. She was so stressed out when she came over to my house. The girl who called her from her job, wanted to know if she was happy to continue going in to the lady, as she’s showing no symptoms, of course, my sister said that no, she wasnt comfortable doing that. and she wouldnt continue to go to her house and work with her.
They told my sister that the lady will be in the clear once march 31st rolls around, if she still hasnt shown any symptoms. I really really hope my sister is going to be ok! I hope she doesnt have it, because she’s been in contact with me, with our parents, and with her own family and her other clients from her job.
I am very anxious now, and so worried!
I do not want to catch this virus! And I dont want any of my family members to have it either especially my mom!
Please pray none of us have it!

Update on mom

My mom is doing a little better, but she has a long way to go. The infection she has is really bad.

She’s still taking the course of steroids and lots of different inhalers, plus, the doctor also gave her special nebules for her nebuliser with ventolin plus something else in them.

She’s exhausted from her cough, she’s been coughing like crazy all weekend, and she said she feels totally drained from it.

This morning, she was vacuming the bedroom that I slept in, and I had Nitro in there with me, and he’s moulting like crazy so there was a ton of dog hair everywhere. She told me she really struggled to do it, and she wouldnt ask my dad to do it since she says he doesnt vacume the way she does.

I feel that over the last few months her COPD has gotten a lot worse. She’s just not able to do as much now as she used to be able to do.

She even told my sister a few days ago that she wouldnt be going camping with her in the summer, as she feels she isnt up to it any longer.

I know her COPD is incurable, and wont get any better, but the fact she’s slowly worsening over time worries me.

I guess all I can do is make life easier for her where I can. I told her that if it was too much that I can stay home on the weekends and just call to my parents house for a few hours on a Saturday and Sunday afternoon, and that I’m perfectly ok with that.

For now she said it was ok for me to keep staying there on the weekend if I wanted to. We’ll see, as I may not. I dont know yet. I’m just unsure of what I’ll do. I’ll think on it over the next few days.

Prayers for my mom

Can you all send my mom some positive juju and prayers?

She’s really sick. As you know, she has COPD, well, at the moment she has a very bad chest infection.

She also has a bad ear infection.

She went to the doctor yesterday and he gave her loads of meds, antibiotics, drops for her ear, stuff to put in her nebuliser, and steroids.

Its just gone 4 AM now and she’s been up since 3:15. She cant lie down as she cant breathe when she lays down.

I’m worried about her. Some supportive prayers and thoughts for her recovery would be much appreciated by me.

Who’d have thought!

I’ve been trying for the last 20 minutes to get a taxi to take me to the doctors in the morning, I tried 3 different taxi firms, everyone was either fully booked up or they were going to be on school runs in the morning. Eventually I got one company to take me which I am glad about, because I was thinking I might have to walk there, and its a half hours walk to get there! Now my next worry will be will the crowd I got be on time, my appointment is at 9 AM on the dot, and I have only a short span of time to be seen and get out the door as I have to make a 9:30 Appointment at the beauty salon for my waxing and nails.
Heres hoping they’ll get to me on time and we’ll make both apts! I am kinda nervous in case we wont!
I guess we shall see what happens!

Eileen!

Eileen is better, yay! We texted her this morning, and she texted back and said she’s doing better, feeling better.

The kids are thrilled! They’d wanted to send her a text last night, but I said no. I thought she was probably too sick to get a text, and I was thinking she might not be in the mood for the kids so I wouldn’t allow them to text her.

So this morning they were like, lets text her! So we did!

She offered us a session tomorrow, but I couldn’t take it, as I have college at the time she offered us. I texted her and said I could do Thursday, but I don’t know if she can, but if she cant, its ok.

I’m just happy she’s feeling better again!

Its such a relief to know she’s ok!
