Good day all,
Today has been a day to say the least. I spent from seven-thirty until nearing noon on the phone with umpteen dozen people. Right from the bottom of the totem pole to the top. None of it being helpful in any way. I was ran around in circles all day. The phone was ringing so much I was nutz in the head, Lol shockingly I thought I was as nutz as I could be, but that turns out not to be so.
I shouldn’t say nothing came of today, just now when I was going over everything with Kyle he picked up on something I overlooked. With all that has gone on and all the people I have talked to the one thing that I should have seen I didn’t. Helpful when I settle long enough to go over stuff with the level-headed on in the house. The one that stays calm when I’m a rampaging lunatic. Okay, okay I’ll cut myself some slack. After the day I had I am just really mentally and for that matter physically spent. This morning I found out that my benefits do have coverage for in home nursing, this is the opposite of what I was told yesterday. Of course nothing is easy. They need the reasons why the Alberta Government and the Home-Care system isn’t doing their job. Well of course the system in this part of Alberta is apparently broken. This is a statement I don’t say lightly. When I say broken, I mean broken. I’m supposed to be set up for morning care. This you would think would happen in the morning. People don’t show up here for me until after lunch, I mean long after lunch. Most of the time well after one. This is when they are coming here to clean my under carriage (if you know what I mean ha ha!) and get me dressed. Yes this is to get me dressed for the day. Amazingly Kyle puts me to bed at nine, so this is basically my day. If I need to go out before this I do everything myself and try to figure out why they are coming at all. Now that I’m getting sicker by the day they are not wanting to come because I’m too much work for one person and they don’t have the staff to have two. For me to have a lift here they say they need two people here. Everything is becoming really complicated. Now the lady that I need to speak with about all of this stuff isn’t in until Thursday. He is to hoping that my sweet Denise can help the best she is able while she is here. Now is this not the stupidest thing to have to say. My best friend drives for miles to come and visit for a couple of days. My best friend that has cancer for the love of God. I can only pray I will settle a bit over night.
I was praying this same pray last night, it didn’t come to pass. I had an appointment at the clinic with Erica this morning and wasn’t able to go. Pat came to pick me up and I knew at that moment that I wouldn’t be able to transfer into the car. I was barely able to transfer onto the toilet and I had my wheelchair lined up touching the front of the toilet to pivot across. I knew I wasn’t strong enough to safely use my slider board to get in the car. I would have done it if Kyle was home, but never with Pat. My driver Pat is a terrific person, but she is probably ninety pounds soaking wet. If something went wrong it would be a nine-one-one call to get me off the ground, then a damn trip to the hospital for a check up. I would guess sitting here now that I would probably be doing this from there tonight instead of here. Some how making the decision not to attempt fate is a much wiser choice. Erica was kind enough to come by here on her way home for our meeting. I’m blessed to have such terrific people around. I said this yesterday, and will say it everyday when in need of reminders the world is not full of the others from this morning.
I was supposed to be doing book work this morning, sadly my dear Alisha is not feeling well. Please everyone think of my friend, special thoughts for her. Maybe tomorrow we will talk for a while, will depend on her health though and the fact the I have company. I will maybe do up a bunch of my memories on my iPad like I do lots and just email them to her. I will see how I hold up after I get into bed as I really am nearly washed up already and it’s not even nine yet. Ooh just looked at the clock lol it is two minutes too. Kyle shall be coming in for me soon.
The best part of my day was when Denise showed up. Erica was still here, but it was great to have her arrive even if I was still busy. She has gone to visit some of her relatives whom she has not seen in a very long time. I think I’ll already be in bed when she gets back, I will certainly see her first thing.
I really do have to go lie down though as I have been sitting in this chair since seven this morning.
Love and hugs Fiona:-)
