It has been three (3) years today since my DH passed away. I still miss him so much. I have been feeling kind of down today, not really depressed, just very sad and lonely.
I know that things get better with time, but every time this day comes around it still causes me a lot of pain. My youngest son has been staying with me for a while, and he remembered too that it has been three years since his dad passed away. I know he is still grieving as well, although he doesn't show it, as he is a man and feels he shouldn't show emotions.
I still haven't made it to the grave site, but I will be there in the next few days. God is with me and He will help me with my grief. He has been with me right through the difficult days leading up to and after my dh's passing. I also know I have many friends I can call and ask to pray for me.

I just wanted to stop by to let everyone know that I have been feeling better. I am so thankful for all your kind thoughts and prayers that have been sent my way lately. For the first time in a long time I was able to accomplish something today without feeling so sluggish. Hopefully things will continue to improve.
I will be seeing my doctor on Wednesday with regards to my sinus problem, and hopefully he will be able to send me to see an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist. Maybe he/she will be able to help me with the vertigo I have been experiencing as well.
I am so thankful for all those who have read my blogs and send such encouraging messages.
God bless you all.

I have been dealing with some health issues of late. I have been having bouts of vertigo as well as sinus infections that just don't seem to go away. I am on my fourth antibiotic for my sinus infection, and my doctor said that there is nothing else he can give me for this. We'll have to look at other things that may be causing my problems.
Because of my vertigo, I have been having trouble sleeping because when I wake up the room tends to be spinning. I have been sleeping in my recliner when I can. My son has been staying with me for the last couple of weeks, so I haven't been able to sleep in my recliner, as he is sleeping in the living room, and I don't want to disturb him.
I hardly slept on Sunday and Monday night, and I have been feeling restless and just have no ambition. I have managed to get some sleep over the last couple of nights, but am still feeling very down. I couldn't figure out why until today. September 8 would have been my DH's and my 30th Wedding Anniversary. He passed away 3 years ago. To top it all off, September 25 will be the third anniversary of his passing. I think I need to make arrangements to visit his grave again.
I will be seeing my doctor again next week, and I'll see if I can find out more about this vertigo, and see what is going to happen with regards to my sinus problems. Hopefully things will get better.

My son called me on Thursday and said he was having some health issues and needed to see a doctor, but his health card had been cancelled because he didn't change his address when he moved. I told him that I would take him to see my doctor, as he has a walk-in clinic, and he is also accepting new patients. I needed to go back to see him anyway, so I could go at the same time. My son decided to come over and spend the night with me on Thursday so that we could go to the doctor on Friday. He phoned about his health card, but they told him he had to fill out a form on line and then it would take 4 - 6 weeks to get the card in the mail.
My son is very like my dh was, and he has no patience. He gets angry and frustrated very quickly. I calmed him down and convinced him to go downtown to the main office and see what could be done about his health card. He finally agreed to do that. We were able to get him a new health card right there. We then went to the doctor's office, but unfortunately the office had closed at 1:30 P.M. on Friday. I didn't realize that it closed that early. However the office was open on Saturdays from 12:00 Noon until 4:00 P.M. My son decided to spend another night so that we could go to the doctor on Saturday.
He had been complaining of stomach and chest pains. He said a doctor from a walk-in clinic had told him that he was developing an ulcer, and that he should stop smoking and start eating properly. When he saw the doctor on Saturday, the doctor checked him out and told him that he didn't have an ulcer or anything else wrong with his stomach, but that he had a torn cartiledge in his chest muscles. When my son asked why he had such pain whenever he ate anything, the doctor said that when he ate and if he had gas it was bloating his stomach and pushing on the muscle walls causing pain. The doctor told him to take it easy and try not to do too much work where he was using those muscles so that they would have a chance to heal. My son is so relieved. He was even thinking he might have cancer. Did I tell you he is a bit of a hypochondriac? (lol).
My son is spending the night again, and we are going to church together tomorrow. I have so enjoyed having him here for a few days. I did spoil him a little, but it was fun.
Hope everyone else is enjoying their weekend as much as I am.
