My week No:6

Hello world, here I am a starting another post about my life during the week.

Slept in till 9am only woke once last night so a much better night

When mum rang she said that Dave, Leigh and the girls asked her to go to Port Macquarie with them tomorrow, she said yes.

After mum rang Dave rang and asked if I would like to go to Port with them tomorrow, I said yes. So big day out tomorrow.

I will have to set alarm for 4am to wake Tasha as she wants to be up that early for some strange reason and 5.30am for me to get up as Dave will be here at 6.15am.

Tim said he will give me money for tomorrow.

I had no problem getting up when both alarms went off. I was up and dressed when Dave & Leigh arrived.

I slept part of the drive to Port Macquarie, we had breakfast at Pancake Place before walking to find a cheap shop.

Although I didn’t walk far before Dave decided to push me on the walker. It made it so much easier for me.

I slept most of the way home.

Jess & Leo didn’t go to visit Jay as Jay cancelled.

I got home by 4pm but mum didn’t ring as we spent all day together.

Tuesday has been a quite day here, told Tim all about yesterday.

Had Tasha pick up some treatment for thrush for me. I remember the days when you had to see a Dr be examined before you could get a script. Now you just go to the chemist buy a pill and take it and you’re usually right.

My back has been painful all day.

Wednesday has been an ok day, Mum went to Paddy’s market with Dave & Leigh and their girls. However, I was unable to go as Dave thought it was too far for me manage. I understand but still I was disappointed.

I had Leo & Daemon while Jess & Kelli went clothes shopping. While they where here Kathy and her girls turned up and both the girls had fun playing the boys. Blain stayed home at Cessnock on his own.

Mum rang me at 5.10pm after she got home.

Thursday was a quite day spent at home doing nothing

Friday was Jeannie’s birthday she is 51, saw her at the square and gave her a present.

Leo spent last night with Kelli & family so just me and Jess this morning.

Dawson is unwell so not going to work.

I was so tired that I went back to bed when I got home.

Tasha’s bathroom is mostly done.

Saturday I was up at 8am and dressed, Jess & Leo here before I was up.

I forgot that Leo was staying the night till I was having a smoke this afternoon. When I mentioned it to Tim he flipped out, started yelling and throwing things.

Saying I NEVER tell him stuff, he went on about stuff that happened a year or more ago.

Leo told him it was a year ago forget it and move on.

When I went to bed he didn’t want to kiss me or hug me. Although after I was in bed he came in and gave me a kiss.

I had of course said I was sorry and when I asked what I could do to help make things better he said to say sorry and I said I already said sorry about 7 times already.

So now it is Sunday and time to post


Thursday Thought

Enter, then, the Rose-garden…and

enjoy with thankful happiness one of

the loveliest scenes on earth.

My Week No: 5

Good afternoon everyone, here I am starting another week that was post, today I did the medications for Tim & myself and Leo. I also vacuumed out once and Leo vacuumed out once. I also got the clothes off the line and hung another load on them.

Monday, Tim and I went to the doctors but as we got in the car to leave the doctors surgery rang and said Dr Arun had to leave for a family emergency so had to see Dr Leo. Tim didn’t like him.

He has referred me to see whatever counsellor I want to. He didn’t recommend anyone.

So I will have to do some research and find someone.

Had our toilet replaced while we were out can’t use it till 2pm.

Tim is off for 3 days.

Tuesday I was up at 6.30am another cold day here.

Kathy rang at 7.40am to ask if I could watch Summer today while her & Michael are working and Sydney is at her father’s.

Summer spent most of the day watch telly sitting on my arm chair.

Tim was out and about all day cashing in cans helping Jess with stuff. He left here at 9.30 and was back at 2pm.

After Tim got home I went for a nap before mum rang.

On Wednesday morning Tim had a phone call at 2.55am from Diane next door he got up and went over to see her. She was a bit upset as Kevin was taken to hospital.

Mum got a phone number for grief counselling through palliative care at the Mater. Natasha will ring and make an appointment for a time that is good for her to take me.

Had Leo for a few hours while Jess had work.

Jess also did her tax return and is getting money back, last year she owed them money.

Thursday morning, Tim back at work, Tasha turned up as I was attempting to make breakfast and took over for me which was a big help.

Later on Tasha asked if I could go up and stay at her place while she popped out. She has workmen in renovating her bathroom and kitchen. I was there for an hour.

Leo here tonight, so his mum can have a break, she too our car home for the night.

Not having a good day.

Friday now and I had a horrible night last night, I was waking every couple of hours and it took an hour or more to go back to sleep.

I got up at 6.30am and had to call Natasha to come and dress me.

Jessica arrived at 7.50am to get me & Leo and we all went to the square. We picked up Dawson on the way.

I had a terrible morning but a better afternoon.

Jess took the car home, she is working tomorrow.

Still hot & cold all day, managed to have a nap.

Tim home at 3.45pm

Mum told me that Ed got a shock when he did his tax return, it came up that he owed $5,000.

The ATO say he owes $14,000 from a higher education loan he got years ago, only he has never got such loan and was in fact working at the time. He now has to prove that.

Saturday and Leo here today as Jess doing a wine tour. I had a better night last night.

Natasha drove Tim over to get our car from Jessica’s. Will gone Kathy went and stayed at Tasha as she still has workmen in.

Been a nice day, here, very windy

Tim went over and did an oil change for Kevin Brown, on his car.

It was 6pm by the time Jess arrived to get Leo.

Sunday again and time to post this.

I didn’t post during the last week just no motivation to do so.

My Week No 4

Another post written posted for the week, so time to start the next week that was post.

Tim is working today as he does most days…….

Jessica came over and Natasha dyed her hair, as well Leo’s hair as Jessica hasn’t been able to get rid of his head lice and they are hoping dying it will help.

Monday morning at 5am I got up to go to the toilet and found Tim up watching TV, he found a lump on his neck which is worrying him so he has made a Dr’s appointment for midday and called in sick. By 8am he has decided that it is his gland.

He saw the Dr and he said it is an infection and prescribed antibiotics.

Had a phone call about my blood glucose machine they are sending me a new machine.

Tim striped the bed and washed the sheets and him and Tasha remade the bed this afternoon.

Tuesday morning I was awake at 7.15am but it was so cold I didn’t want to get out of bed. So I turned the heater on and laid there for 20 minutes before getting up.

Tasha came and dressed me and complained about how cold the house was.

Felt a bit off most of the morning at around 12.30 Natasha came down and gave me some honey which helped clear my head.

Having a shocking afternoon BGL’s all over the place feeling hot and sweating and very emotional crying a lot.

Made a dr’s appointment for Monday.

Leo here tonight

Tuesday night I slept well and feel ok when I first got up.

However, I decided not to take my insulin unless my BGL is over 10 and see how I go.

Not taking the insulin has worked out better, I have been much better today, more with it and less confused.

Kathy’s parcel arrived so I was able to have a nap this afternoon.

Thursday not as cold today but pretty wet as well. Tim took the car to work this morning because of the rain.

Tasha picked up the pie drive order at the school and was surprised at how much there was.

Leo here tonight.

Tim on early day shifts so home by 2pm.

Tim took the car to work because of the wet weather.

On Friday Tasha picked mum & Dawson up and drove them to Charlie. Saw Jeannie at Charlie.

Jessica met me at the square which was great after we were done Tasha drove us home.

I bought KP24 to treat Leo’s head lice and two fine tooth metal combs.

Last day of the school term.

Saturday and Tim off today and he spent most of the day cleaning out one of his sheds and taking stuff up the front for the kerbside collection

We had Leo all day while Jess was at work.

Tasha treated Leo with KP24.

My Week No:4

Another week done and dusted, so let me start another week that was post. Tim went and picked up Leo and brought him here so he could cut Leo’s hair, in order to get rid of his head lice.

So this morning Tasha came down to help me get dressed and get the clothes off the line, while she was here Tim read allowed the text I sent him last night about Kathy. So Tasha sent Kathy a nasty text about the fact that she has a bloody good life and how dare she say otherwise.

Tim went over and got Leo so he could cut Leo’s hair. He had to borrow Tasha’s hair clippers as his were blunt.

Tim also replaced the bulb in his bike’s headlight.

Jessica came over with Kelli and her kids, so I was able to see Freya and give her the elephant I bought her.

It is a cold and wet day, here in my part of Newie.

Monday was another cold and wet morning, Tim on afternoons again. No aqua as it is far too cold. Tasha came up to borrow some liquid paper.

I found myself falling asleep at 9am so I went back to bed for 2hrs.

On Tuesday I had an appointment with the nurse at the doctors surgery. However, when I made the appointment the receptionist stuffed up and made it with Arun. The nurse still did the care plan anyway.

I have had a change in my medication, I know will only take 1 Diamicron daily as well as 1 Forxiga tablet daily and have to checked my blood often each day.

I woke up tired on Thursday morning and ended going back to bed at 8am for two hours. I still felt tired but could at least function.

Felt tired most of the day, had to go for another nap, Leo woke me up when he got home from school.

Friday I slept in till 8am as Leo isn’t going to school as he has an appointment with Dr Murry at the John Hunter Hospital.

Jessica arrived at 9am, she called in sick this morning.

Dr Murry was running an hour late, we ended up seeing her registrar but Dr Murry did come in and see us as well.

They now thing Leo may have something called, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome which is something to do with how flexible he is. He is being referred to a specialist about it.

It looks like we may have to go private to have his autism diagnosed. I mentioned it to Tim he wasn’t interested but I will speak to him again.

Saturdays morning I went to Charlestown with Kathy and Summer.

Natasha & Kathy patched up their differences and Tasha dyed Kathy’s hair.

Last night I had a hypo attack and had to get help from Tasha.

After that I settled down and slept well.

Had another hypo attack Sat night and was in a right mess had to take some honey to make me feel ok. This happened twice.

I sent an email off to the blood glucose company letting them know that I feel the machine is playing up.

I also have rang mum and asked if I could borrow dad’s machine to check what that level it shows compared to mine.
