This first part is a medical thing, so you can skip over it. Whew, we have a new wrinkle. Wednesday afternoon hubby said his chest hurts. He said "I won't wait like I did the last time if this gets worse". Last time he had a heart attack on his way to work while driving. About 4 he said it was getting bad so we jumped in the car and went to ER. His tests didn't show that it was his heart but the nitroglycerin made the pain go away. Much against his will they admitted him. If he was going to have a heart attack, he missed a good chance while he was ranting and raving about staying there overnight! They decided not to do a heart cath because he just didn't understand what they were talking about and the Dr. thought it would make him worse and more confused. It was while I was waiting for him to be released that I was bombarded with information. A social worker started asking a lot of questions and a physical therapy gal came in too. They want to make a home health care visit to teach him to walk with a walker and inspect the house to see if they can make it better for him. I don't mind that and think it may help us. When I called our sons they said they have been talking and think we should consider looking at facilities where you start out together then can move to assisted living and skilled care. I started crying in the waiting room where we were talking. They and the nursing staff and doctor see more than I do. If something happens I don't see it as a problem, I just adjust and fix it. They see it as a problem we are going through and needs to be taken care of. I was just tired and overwhelmed and the sympathy and offer of help got to me. I know my sister in law told me a while back I should start looking at nursing homes so I would be prepared when the time comes. So these last few days have been an eye opener by just seeing things through other peoples eyes. Our younger son told me last night he expects to get a call every day that dad has fallen and I need help. After I get through this eye thing I will start my search. It is heartbreaking. On a lighter note, I can't go anywhere where I won't have a craft room!
Here is my first Halloween card. It is a fun stamp set from Lawn Fawn with a googly eye added and paper from a 6x6 pack from Doodlebug along with a strip of washi tape. It just cracks me up.
Don't forget I have a giveaway ending Sunday at noon. Be kind to one another.
