Still Hanging in There

November 5th, 2017 at 06:34 am

C's friend M, who is staying with her full-time, takes regular medication. When she came up, she brought the amount she thought she needed, but since C is hanging on longer than expected, she ran out. She arranged with her husband to mail more to her, but the mail was diverted somehow, and it came three days later than it should have.

Yesterday she was on the verge of driving to Indiana to meet her husband, when the package finally arrived just as she was going out the door. Big relief.

M and I went out to do some shopping yesterday while DIL stayed with C. I returned the shoes to DSW, but could not get a replacement in the right color. I have to order online, but the site is down. Nothing is simple!

We also went to Home Goods and Target. I bought Christmas gifts totaling $44, and kitty litter for $27. I also spent $33 on groceries for C's house. DIL says she will pay me back, but if she forgets, I won't say anything. It really isn't her responsibility any more than mine.

I also spent $6 at Panera, but M gave me $10, so that was more than covered.

Going back to C's today.

    Thinking of you. Day by day, do what you can. Glad to see you posting here regularly.

    As I read over your posts, I am reminded of this poem by Alvin Fine. And regardless of what you believe, I hope it gives you some comfort at this time. Hugs.

    Birth is a beginning and death a destination;
    But life is a journey.
    A going, a growing from stage to stage:
    From childhood to maturity and youth to old age.

    From innocence to awareness and ignorance to knowing;
    From foolishness to discretion and then perhaps, to wisdom.
    From weakness to strength or strength to weakness and often back again.
    From health to sickness and back we pray, to health again.

    From offense to forgiveness, from loneliness to love,
    From joy to gratitude, from pain to compassion.
    From grief to understanding, from fear to faith;
    From defeat to defeat to defeat, until, looking backward or ahead:

    We see that victory lies not at some high place along the way,
    But in having made the journey, stage by stage, a sacred pilgrimage.
    Birth is a beginning and death a destination;
    But life is a journey, a sacred pilgrimage,
    Made stage by stage...To life everlasting.

    I think it's awesome of the support and love you all are providing to C and her family. God bless you all.

    If her friend runs low again, I know in Florida the pharmacy will give you 2-3 days so long as it's not a control medication, she may can get a few days.

    You are so wonderful to be so supportive to C. Sorry the friend ran out of medicine. Glad it worked out though.

    Thinking of you all as you're there for each other.
