Thankfulness Mondays – Really Tired But Thankful!

Week 44  (of 52) posting of things to be thankful for, with Bernadette of Haddon Musings and others to hopefully encourage others and to offset the many negative areas of our life.

Today I’m thankful that we move in two days, and that my sister is recovering, though still quite ill, from double pneumonia. She’s older than I am, and went into the hospital last week very weak and ill. Her BP, heart rate and oxygen rate we very low. She was in ICU until today and they were moving her to a regular room.

The news that while the doctor is pleased  she is recovering, on examination he found that her COPD is now severe, and she also has emphysema and congenitive heart failure. She has been quite tired for some time now, but seemingly this went undiagnosed until she became so ill.

The positive aspect is that she will now be followed by two specialists, and receive some help with homecare, housework, and a few days of meals on wheels. This will allow her to live in her own home as long as possible

We’re moving in two days, but I wanted to go to see her for a couple of days, to know that she was okay. It’s been a tough couple of weeks packing etc; but there’s an end in site, and my sister is out of immediate danger.

Once I get settled I’ll of course go and see spend some time with her.!

Note that I won’t have internet when we move on Tuesday for a week or so, therefore won’t be able to read any blogs or comment or post.  I’ll have to try and catch up on at least some when I’m back online.

  2. You and your Sister Diane will be in my Thought and Prayers, yes our bodies wear out with age but in Christ Jesus our Spirit stays strong.

    When you are finished unpacking Diane could you please just pop over to Aussie Land and help me pack…… OK just one day at a time but Wow I’m running out of Days and a place to Unpack !!!

    • Thinking of you … it just gets more difficult the older we get. We still have more to ‘purge’ . I have to really get tough on what to keep… Take care and I hope you get some help.. Diane


    • You are so very right.. sisters are special. She is as it turns out going to move into a senior’s home where she will have her own apartment but receive more help… Thanks .. Diane


  3. I have not kept up with my reading lately, so now I am curious about your move. I will try to go back and catch up. We are considering moving back to CA. after being here in Oregon for three years. We both have daughter’s with young children and we would like to. See them on a more regular basis. I will keep your sister in my thoughts and prayers..
