Russell's dad is home again. He came home with hospice, but I'm not sure how long that will last. This is a very difficult transition period for my MIL. She is frightened (I believe ) of the many changes that are taking place. She's secure with the home health they had before this hospital visit and has already decided she doesn't like hospice. We are treading lightly and trying to just "be there". Of course, this is also about it being my DH's daddy so it is hard for him in so many ways. He's worried about his mama and sad about his daddy.
Almost 12 years ago, my daddy had a pleasant night, went home to bed and dropped dead. Shock! Oh, yes, horribly. But looking back, God was so merciful to us. No decisions had to be made, no indignity for daddy. It was a blessing. Very hard to lose him, but very blessed that he went the way he went.
Tax season is over for another year! That means I actually see my husband more! In real living self! We had planned a little motor home trip, but cancelled. We just don't want to get too far away right now. So after a couple crises, we drove over to Destin for a few hours. If you ever get there and go the The Grand Boulevard, a good place to eat is Cantina Laredo. We had a great lunch there and then shopped!!! I was itching to shop. A little retail therapy. Unfortunately I didn't get into a shoe store, but did get to Coldwater Creek and Chico's. Two of my favorites.
Today, I'm frantically cleaning house. Son and wife are coming tomorrow to visit with papa so I need for them to at least have clean sheets. :) Honestly, I've been gone so much that my cleaning schedule has gone out the window. So I'll be dusting, vacuuming and mopping until time to take my mother to the doctor.
See you all soon!
