It’s Saturday night, and here I am…

21916 c owl 4Middle age. I tell ya. OK so I never really was one to go out on Saturdays, or any other night of the week. It’s just not my scene. I’m a homebody who prefers the quiet and my computer. Of course with the boys playing xbox in the room right below me, quiet is not a word I would use to describe things. Mix that with Dad’s TV and soon Jim’s phone…

Mom came home from the hospital today. I’m honestly not sure how long 21916 c owl 3she’ll be home this time. She’s twice the size she was when she went in. CHF is horrible.  Her breathing is not good at all. She gets out of breath just moving around in bed. Her legs are so swollen that she has blisters that popped. She gets infections so very easily. I got her some cheese cubes, her coffee and her bedtime medications. Dad will make sure she takes her breathing treatment. I helped her lift her legs up, so that she could lie down. She’s ready for bed. It upsets me that she did not come home with an antibiotic. She had pneumonia earlier this week. Cellulitis last week. These are serious infections for someone in her condition.

Jamey once again skipped dinner. He almost passed out in the dining room tonight. We got his bloodwork done, I need to sign into the portal and see the results. I’m actually a little worried. His numbers have been good for a while now. But two of his medications have been known to raise liver enzymes. I don’t know what we’ll do if they are high and they remain high after we take off the cymbalta. The miranol is his main pain medication now. We’re out of choices and if it’s going to destroy his liver, it’s not a choice. I’m sure he’ll be going down in a little while to at least get a bowl of cereal. So I’m not too worried about him not eating. Right now at least.

21916 c owl 1I need to find a normal in this blog adventure. Especially with Mom home now. It’s going to take a bit of time. But I need to take the time for me. If not, I’ll go completely nuts. I’m just realizing how much I have put on myself and how much everyone else takes advantage of that. It will be stopping. I understand Mom and to some degree Jamey, especially when the dizziness comes out of nowhere, but Jim, Ed and Dad need to start doing for themselves a bit. Out of the three, Ed’s the most self reliant. It will be changing.

Tomorrow should be a quiet, laundry catch up day. And I have a lot of laundry to catch up on.  But for tonight, it’s The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, and maybe some Sleepy Hollow before I put on Charmed to fall asleep to. Yes, I am aware that there is a rather dark theme to my favorite shows, but Grey’s Anatomy and Once Upon a Time aren’t paranormal…

What are your favorite TV shows? Are you watching anything on Netflix or Hulu right now? Whats your dirty little secret TV show? (Big Brother here)
