I spent the day with dh, trying to get things settled for the ILs. MIL was not released from the hospital after all. The doctor has changed her medication, trying to stabilize her bloodsugars which are still not under control. She refuses to eat more than a couple of bites which doesn't help. I don't quite understand why her sugars are so terribly high when she doesn't eat anything. . .
Dh and I toured one retirement place. Lovely place but we have some reservations mainly because it is so foreign culturally from what they are used to. We have home health set up to start as soon as MIL comes home, possibly as soon as tomorrow, but that is a stop gap measure as it will not be able to keep up with care if dementia and Alzheimer needs increase, as they undoubtedly will.
I am so terribly tired. I've neglected the kids for two days. They're ok but of course it is not optimal to do this for too many days.
I've felt like I'm on the cusp of getting sick for the past couple of days. A bit of throat swelling, actually. I'm supposed to get another allergy shot this week but now I'm not quite sure if I should't hold off on this one.
