    Moving forward

    Spent some time talking with my neighbor last night. Going over some of the stuff I’m feeling. The need for a break etc. Trying to figure out how I can get it. It needs to be a long break though. I don’t think a week will do it. We will see. Hugs all

    Thank you both. I did restart my Zoloft last night. We will see where that takes me. However, I never feel good being on any kind of med, so not sure how long I will stick with it. And the other side of it is, while I was on it, I don’t think I was dealing with the grief at all. Not sure...

    The Next Part of the Journey

    We are all coping, as best we can. We do what we can to move forward, teeny tiny baby steps at a time, and then fall back by a giant leap sometimes. Looking at houses online today. May go check 2 of them out that are open today, not sure. I’ve stayed away from work stuff this weekend...

    Yes, I find cooking hard and it was something I always enjoyed. I will be cooking today for my DD and her GF’s and that I will probably enjoy. Making others feel good. It’s been a very rough week with lots of tears. I think I’m finally getting time to do some processing. It’s been a hell of...

    The Next Part of the Journey

    Lenore by any account I think you are doing well. I also the believe the break from work and responsibilities did you good. My therapist and I were talking about how I need a break. Owning a business just doesn’t allow for that. It should, but since we are very small and I do the payroll and...

    Wow, today was long. When I got in my car to come home, the low pressure symbol was on for a tire. As soon as I got in my driveway, I pulled out my gauge to figure out just which tire was causing the issue. First tire was good, second tire didn’t need checked, there was a big ol screw...

    Been a busy day. I really need to do some meal prepping with working this much. Boy I’ve forgotten a lot over the years spent at home as a caregiver. Hope all is well

    Transfers: Sliding board vs. Hoyer

    We used a slide board for quite a while with DH. I think mostly because his legs went, well before his arms and then core. It worked wonders for us. We actually didn’t have a hoyer type lift until his last few years. Partly too, that was due to DS and his strength. While DH was 6’2” he lost...

    Good grief I am a bit behind on here. Lost one of my Admin Assist’s so I’ve been working my job and hers. The joys of being a business owner. Then I just found out about another issue. DS will be headed to the shop to do some recon work. Then, unfortunately that will lead to some pretty...

    Questions about BiPAP/Vent

    Steve, you are correct in you description of the Trilogy, it is a one stop shop, does biPap and vent. It was DH’s vent. I’m a little surprised the clinic didn’t get right on the script for the vent, since they tested you and determine it was needed. Happy to hear the hospital bed is working...

    Questions about BiPAP/Vent

    My husband had 2 different machines through his course. First a dedicated BiPap machine, and then when he was trached, a trilogy and yes it has different settings. At first they tried him on the S/T for during the and AC at night, which did all the work for him. However, he didn’t have the...
