So, just wanted to check in right before weather report and bed.
Got home in time to have dinner with Bruce. We ordered a pizza - yes, I know, not real good for a diabetic, but we both deserve a treat once in a while.
Bruce and I did get out Tuesday afternoon. It was horrid - hot and humid, and we were not out long, but still I worried. AC in the car works fine, but still not in the house. In our poor years, we used fans and just AC in the bedroom, so that is exactly what I did. Still a bit humid.
Yesterday was horrible. I literally had an Inspector drag me up and down all three floors for an hour trying to locate a Patient's cigarettes (his Nurse had them - exactly the right thing - LOL). Now I am tiny, but I am not a Spring Chicken. I took a long lunch break so I could spend some time with Bruce. Even Bruce said "you are soaked!" Always the lady! So my long lunch with Bruce was a shower and clothing change. I got home about 9pm.
Now I am trying desperately to hold things together here at home. Bruce is asking questions I know are reflective of his anxiety and Kira is out of her mind. Plus I always have to keep a mind to my temper. I did so want not to take my exhaustion and concern out on Bruce.
Both of us were up at 4:45 am. Once I popped Bruce out of bed, my mind started and that was it for me. So coffee and normal morning routine. Bruce assured me he would be fine for an extra 20 minutes (total of an hour and 20 minutes) alone. My fellow part-timer was already there at 7:30 am. We laughed as we both got coffee that we had already had three or four trips to the BR. Hopefully just a couple of hours finish up in the AM (it is a holiday weekend and they are State workers).
I am not even thinking about the fallout, because there is always fallout. We now have time to sort it all out.
Paycheck should be amazing. Colleen and Nancy: some spending money - LOL.
But, best part of the whole week: Bruce was continent overnight! LOL. I said to him he was sending me off with the best gift he could have given me. And honestly that is what kept me going all day. When I was getting overwhelmed and anxious, that recentered me and I smiled. I assured him tomorrow afternoon was the start of party time! And I am cutting some hours next week. Bruce is not much of a partier, I am pretty sure he just wants his life back - LOL. Erma will get us in order tomorrow morning. Bruce has already told me he has things "planned" for the afternoon. That is also a gift, in itself, as usually it is "follow you."
So it is done. Some real positives came out of all of this and yes, it was only a week, but I am hoping it just added another layer to Bruce's recovery. Good weekend all. Debbie
