It has been a nerve wracking day. I sent my mother to the hospital yesterday afternoon because she wasn’t right. She was severely dehydrated and she hadn’t had a bowel movement in over a week. The ED is trying to make her poop. They fixed the dehydration with fluids. She could come home tomorrow if she poops and continues to do well. Unfortunately, her cancer has doubled in size and she has a partially collapsed lung. They did say it was an aggressive cancer. I didn’t want to believe that until now.
I spent most of the night worrying about my mother. I didn’t go to sleep till after 0300. I woke up to my phone blowing up with messages and phone calls. I didn’t want to deal with any of it. I was suppose to call the pharmacy to fix a mistake they have but never called. I was too tired to be put on hold. I will try tomorrow morning.
Yesterday I made pork chops and forgot about them as my mother was sick and I was trying to get her to go to the hospital. They turned into rocks. My niece had to throw them away. I was looking forward to them. Oh well. I made vegetables yesterday. My niece and I are addicted to cauliflower. We bake it with cheese and breadcrumbs in the oven and it comes out so damn good. That is all we have been eating all week.
I just did my meds for the week. I have this week of full meds and vitamins and then next week will just be meds. I can’t take any vitamins a week before surgery. I am trying to imagine what it will be like to be flat chested again. I cannot wait. I know it will be uncomfortable for a few weeks after surgery. I am a side sleeper so this is really going to suck. I might have to sleep downstairs in the recliner for a few days.
My sisters come home tomorrow. I don’t know what time they will be home. Hopefully my mother will also be home.
