My thoughts on this Thursday
My thoughts today...........
Where is everyone? I haven't seen posts for so many for so long. I know summer is a busy time but you are missed.
Last night I took my youngest to Urgent Care. He is our adopted son that is 27. He has a little ache or pain and thinks it is an emergency. It happens all the time. So hard to know if it is something serious. I think he just doesn't know how to handle life........and that is part of his disability. He is extremely over weight. We try so hard to encourage him to loose weight. He won't do any kind of exercise. He just refuses to walk or do anything. He eats things that aren't good for him. He was weighed the other day at the doctors. I asked how much he weighed. He said that he topped the scale and he wasn't sure because the scale only goes so high. I know I am overweight as well but I do try to stay healthy. I can't begin to tell you how many times we have taken him to the ER. My poor husband has gone so many times in the middle of the night. When my son has a melt down he knows exactly how to get admitted. So you get the picture. Well last night a friend of mine called. I haven't seen her for several years. She has two adopted children as well. They don't have disabilities. They fight all the time. Well she told me that I was so mean to my son. She said that I signed up for this. She said that he would have died had we not taken him in. That's probably true. She also said that we took in this cute little boy and when he had problems we had a hard time dealing with that. Say what..........oh what we have been though. There are so many stories that you would never believe. School was just awful. I earned every white hair. I know that my husband has more patience with him than I do, but I do love him. I want a better life for him. I just get so upset that he won't help himself. But being mean to him.....that hurts. I will try to be nicer, I will. As soon as I post this I have to go get his meds and take them to his apartment. I waited hours in the hot car last night while he was being seen. On Monday the baby I watch and I waited as he saw his other doctor. My husband does way more than I do. Oh well.......it is what it is.
While at the Urgent Care, a teenager came in. He could hardly walk. He had on soccer clothes.....my first thought was a head injury. It was just one of those feelings that you know is something seriously. Then I hear the squad getting closer and closer and suddenly it was at the Urgent Care. The nurses held the door open and said something about the doctor saying to hurry and about meningitis. I have heard since that he had crashed heads with another player and that he was at Children's with viral meningitis. Pray for this boy.
My sweet Mabel told me on the phone that she loved me "more" when I told her I loved her. Ahhhhh.....later she said to Heaven. I asked her to call after her first day of pre-school.......and she did that as soon as she got picked up. She was so excited.
I am ready for fall.........not rushing time......but ready for cooler temps.
Thanks for letting me vent. You know how it is when you can't get something off your mind. Just the thought of someone thinking I was mean is difficult for me .
I have changed my email address to: firstname.lastname@example.org I'm not sure that it is working. I hesitated for so long because I worried about my blog getting messed up. It automatically changed......shocker. Maybe now I can get your emails.
I was able to finally get the banner picture up on my header. Now that summer is almost over. Oh well, it may still be there next summer.
Thanks my friends. I hope you are having a good week.
