Hard for me to believe that is has been almost a week since my last post. As I sit here shaking my head, I wonder where has the time gone to?
Hubby finished his last day, we hope, of his infusion therapy. For those that never heard this term before, I was one of them, it is daily doses of IV antibiotics delivered in the doctor's office. Loving hubby was diagnosed with MRSA, although we did not learn this until today. MRSA is a nasty, ultra resistant staph infection caused by who knows what. MRSA is everywhere. How people contract this is quite the puzzlement to all infections disease doctors. As of today, my hubby is on the mend, slowly getting his appetite back. Cross fingers that this is finally gone. Gone I say! Be gone!
My dear mother in law was finally placed in a local nursing home. It was a sad conclusion but by all means the right decision. Over the course of the past several months, her Alzheimer's over took her mind. Invaded her very being. It is such a vicious disease, stealing your past, your memories, your sense of self and your own definition. But we had to come to terms with this decision as my husband and I could no longer go on another day of caring for her. I pray that God does not judge me for this when I stand before Him on my judgement day.
Saturday night, we actually partook in our complex's St Patrick's Day party. Ever hear of baked potato and beer party? Great combination and I swear the potatoes were the size of Michigan!
However, hubby and I actually went to a movie on Sunday afternoon. We experienced a sense of freedom that had eluded us. I felt like a teenager sneaking away for a first date. It was glorious. Again, I felt a bit guilty at the same time.
And in a few days, we will escape to warmer climate. Destination held in secrecy! Future posts will reveal the family fun.
