My Weekend Update

Please forgive me for not writing for a couple of days. Yes, I wrote and shared my dialysis update for the week yesterday. I also shared a dream that I had earlier last week, and I have decided to add Dreams to my blog. Between Thursday and Saturday, I dealt with some anxiety, and today, after not being able to get treatment to the end, I hope treatment goes well today, or the catheter will need to be replaced. We will have to wait and see, and I will go from there. 

After getting home from a chaotic morning, my friends and my boyfriend came over Saturday afternoon. JM, KB, and his mom, TB, came to worship with me since I cannot make it to church, and we chatted about life. I had taken Alprazolam for onset anxiety before they came, and then shortly after everyone left around 4 PM, I took some children’s Benadryl to relax me some more and get ready for bed. I had fallen asleep sometime between 7 PM and 9 PM, waking up around 6:30 AM Sunday to go back to sleep between 12 PM and 3 PM while watching part of a movie and then waking up to the second half of another movie. My body needed rest. 

A new “work” week has begun. After an emotional week of overwhelming circumstances out of my control, I am hanging in there. JM came by after she got off work for a while to fill Pria and stayed for an hour. While I waited for JP to come over to help with my bath and get me dressed for the day, I heard a school band right outside on Main St. There was a parade yesterday, and I was able to listen to some of it. That helped. I forgot there was a parade today. It pays to live downtown where there is more civilization. Now I am waiting patiently for JP, my caregiver, to be with me for a little while. Today is dialysis day, and I pray that it goes well today, or I will have my catheter replaced this week.
