What a Night
This is what I feel like today. I'm brave to even post the picture. Last night I was so exhausted I fell asleep while watching one of our favorite shows, so I went to bed early only to wake up off and on for a few hours. I took note that Frank was snoring ,it is more like a breeze type snore as he can't physically snore like he used to because of the surgery that was supposed to fix it. He has sleep apnea. Any way I finally went to sleep only to wake up again to Frank letting out a painful loud sigh. His back was killing him. I can't help but worry about him as he is still taking prescription pain meds twice a day for the pain. I can't help but wonder what is going on with the surgery and if it is still healing or is there something wrong? The poor guy has had way more than his share of pain and surgeries this past year. If he hasn't improved by December, his doctor here in the valley is going to have him get another X-Ray to see what is going on. We went to church today, and I could tell that Frank was hurting more than usual. So the episode last night had a lasting effect on him. I am going to get some of Dr. Bret's good calcium for Frank to take and maybe that will help the bone to heal faster and better. It is worth a try.
I am so exhausted all the time so I am thinking about getting something to help me sleep. I don't think my diabetes can be the whole problem. I need to get back to eating better, choices that are better for diabetics. I have to force myself to do the the house hold chores and anything extra. I didn't do any scrap booking yesterday as I just felt too tired. So we watched a DVD that we had bought a while back and it was really good. We laughed our heads off. It was called "The Proposal." It has been the best DVD that we have seen this year.
I have been thinking about Cami our Umbrella Cockatoo that passed away last November and it makes me feel sad. I just want to feel her on my shoulder or hand and pet her feathers and hear her talk to me. Frank & I both miss her. I see dogs, cats, birds, etc. and just want to pet them and have them cuddle up with me. I have thought about another pet, until I think about traveling, leaving them alone on days we go to Sherry's etc. and then I change my mind about it.
Pets are a lot of work, and I have a tendency to spoil them rotten. I am allergic to dogs, and would have to get one that is better for people with pet allergies. So that is out of the question for now. We are hoping that Frank will improve enough by next Summer so we can travel in our 5th wheel trailer back to Bastendorf by the ocean(Coos Bay OR). Traveling with Cami was restricting as she had a small cage we used in the trailer and we felt guilty leaving her for any length of time in that cage. We want to be free to go and see the sights and not worry about a pet.
