Calming Down

I had planned on driving up to Michigan this weekend to confront Kathy's family face to face. I'm still hot under the collar about what they said and did to her. But, I've decided to let it go.

 

I talked with Kathy's social worker after she had and it seems it would be better for her to stay in town. Everyone at the day care loves and cares for Kathy and are pushing to help her find a place on her own. She has already been excepted at a nursing home, but I don't like that idea and she wants to keep Murphy (her dog) so we're still pushing for assisted living.

 

Just knowing that in the near future Kathy will not be living here has calmed me down dramatically. I'm starting to get back into caring about what is happening rather than just trying to get by one more day. It's hard caring for and about someone who rubs you the wrong way every 10 minutes.

 

Since I already had a sitter arranged and the time off to go up to Michigan, I'm going to take the oportunity and get away for another weekend. A friend in town bought some music supplies offline and is heading down to Nashville to pick them up. He's leaving on Sat, but since I used to live down there I'm going down before him to see the old sites. I'm going to have a day by myself to reflect, then help him load up and haul the stuff back up here. It should be a relaxing trip all around.

Another example of how things work out so we need not stress, fret or worry about things.

Worry is borrowing trouble from tomorrow.

Stan;

 

Thanks for the reply, but you need to read back several blogs to understand what is going on. This is deeper than a caregiver having problems coping with the survivor.
