Back to Blogging
After a much needed break, I am happy to come back to blogging. I'll have a new post on Wednesday.
Things hit a crisis earlier this month when Dear Son's claims began coming in fast and furious after his May and June hospitalizations. I had over 100 claims to process not to mention the fact that my file cabinet was overflowing and needed to be sorted out. Cases and cases of Dear Son's formula and other supplies began to fill up my foyer and suddenly things were overwhelming. It look more like a hospital supply room and less like a home which is not good. Dear Son's Dad put some shelves in the hall closet for me and I was able to move all of the feeding supplies to the new shelving. I was able to get through all of the claims with the majority of the claims processed with the exception of a few that will require some follow up calls. In my procrastination over cleaning out the file cabinet, I took on some other tasks and re-organized the garage, detailed my car, shined up the kitchen cabinets and countertops along with doing a few projects in there. I read a few organizing books while I was doing my projects so that helped inspire me. It doesn't seem to matter how much I do there is always something I could be doing. I am not very good at sitting still. I am happy that our house looks like a home again and I have a clean desk without any paperwork!
I also had to hire (and later fire) a Respite worker. I'll probably write a blog about that but I nearly had a heart attack over that one.
Dear Son seems to have stabalized (fingers crossed) and is doing much better than he had been earlier this month. It seemed to be touch and go for a while. It has been quite an adjustment for me not having to cook for him anymore since he has switched to g tube feeding.
It has been ungodly hot here this month. I'll be glad when the weather finally cools off and fall arrives.
Thanks for hanging in there and keeping me in your thoughts these last few weeks. I was amazed at how many people checked in every day. That was nice. I am so excited to be back and can't wait to start catching up on your blogs again!
