Re: Back Home!

Chris P, hope your dad feels better soon.
Ceres, glad to hear gd is better.
Auralie, so glad to hear your DH is on the mend. Let those boys help. Long distance is hard, but it's important to have extended family pitch in. The bonding that ensues is priceless and it will be a blessing to all of you.If Colorado son comes, make him a honey do list of things you just haven't benn able to do. In addition to accomplishing some of your chores, he will know his effort to come is more than just a gesture to you. A list gives him the opportunity to chose what to do. If you have others offer to help, make them a list too. Sometimes just having someone there in case DH needs help will give you time to rest, take a walk or run a quick errand. When I worked in hospice, the hardest thing was getting folks to feel good about accepting the help that was offered them and being specific with potential helpers about the nature of the help needed. Some folks are gifted to see needs and just pitch in. Others (me) need a little nudge at times. Take care of yourself. Will do him no good if you get sick
Sorry, didn't mean to lecture. getting off the soapbox.
