There's Tired...

...and then there's me.

I am the epitomy of the word exhaustion. My days consist of getting up, going to the day job, and working madly for three hours, then driving over to the hospital to spend lunch with my husband, then coming back and working madly for five more hours, and possibly being on the phone with the VA or whoever else I need to be, then driving over to the hospital and spending a few more hours with hubby. I come home exhausted, throw in a load of laundry, do the few dishes we have in the sink, and collapse on the couch.

I miss my writing. I miss my characters. I miss the world of writing. I haven't had time to go to anyone's blogs - and I miss you all!

Hubby is doing much better, but his arm is still not anywhere near healed. It's going to take a very long time for that to happen. I hope the blistering does not leave scars behind because the way it looks now...wow. It's even worse than it was a few days ago. I think this is just part of the healing process to get the infection out because the swelling has gone down considerably. But he's not leaving the hospital until that arm looks better.

Thankfully, we have an appointment with a gal on Friday to talk about the whole hospital bill which, they've already tallied up to Tuesday, and you don't want to know what it is. (I was actually astonished it was as low as it was!). I'm off to the VA today to see about getting hubby's eligibility processed.

I'm looking forward to the weekend, and I pray that my husband's arm will look a lot better by then because let's face it - I really don't want to spend another weekend sitting in an uncomfortable hospital chair!!!

Your continued prayers and support are so very much appreciated...you have no idea!

Hope to catch up with you all soon...

  1. Melissa, here's hoping he is fully recovered soon. I don't know how you do it. Fingers crossed for the VA.

  2. Melissa, just remember, "This, too, shall pass." Soon your hubby will be home, and you'll be back into your writing. Hang on til then! We're praying for you and your family.

    Thinking of you.

    Sometimes, in the healing process, it does get worse, at least in the looks department, before it gets better.

    Take care.

I love to hear from you!

One Day at a Time

I've always tried to live with this mentality: One day at a time. Unfortunately, when I implement it, I fail spectacularly. But for this...
