' ... Wind ... sweepin' down the plain ... '

If someone had told me the night that Mama ER had her surgery that on Jan. 2, 2007, I would be doing most of my work from a laptop and that she would still be in the hospital, I wouldn't have believed 'em.

As Mama ER might say, even with some breaks the past few days -- thanks to Big Brudder and Big Big Sister and Mr. Big Big Sister -- I feel like somethin' the cat drug up.

I need a second wind. Good thing there's always one sweepin' down the plain around here. (How 'bout Oklahoma's centennial this year startin' off the Rose Parade yesterday! Did me proud.)

It's not physical tiredness, nor mental fatigue. I think I've just got a little emotional worn-outness going on, even though she's doing better every day.

Fortunately, there are further levels of tiredness.

When, as Mama ER would say, I feel like something the cat drug up, chewed up and spit out, then stick a fork in me, I'll be done. :-)

I'm glad Mama ER is doing better. It can be irksome to have it go so slowly. I'm sure she wishes it would hurry up already.

I know how you feel with the emotions. Helping my friend through her final days was emotionally exhausting. (Sometimes I think I'd rather be physically exhausted!)

Give Mama an extra hug--she continues to be in my prayers. :)
 
As well as taking care of your mother, you'reno good to anyone, including her, if you don't take care of yourself. I will be adding you to my prayers as well, that you find the strength to give yourself a rest to regain strength. Say a "Hi, y'all" to all of yours from all of ours shivering up here on the prairie.
 
I'm glad your Mother is doing better. When I was younger, I had a preemie baby in the hospital for 2 months and 2 days and for the first 5 weeks they would promise us nothing. My husband and I kept wondering when the pressure was going to let up. It sure makes one thankful and praise the Lord when it does get better.
 
Thanks, y'all.
 
The good thing about this is that she is making progress. The bad thing is you are learning that you are not as young as you once were.
The good thing about this is that you can do your work while at the hospital and thus have time with her. The bad thing is this kind of thing reminds us that we are all mortal.
Best to mamma ER, you, and Dr. ER.
