Also praying that Dr Greenwell will have the wisdom to know if Rick needs something besides antibiotics and Mucinex to fight this cough and congestion!!!
We will be in Sulphur Springs until Friday, waiting on a dialysis delivery.
Rick is also going to be trying to sell the 2002 Dodge 2500 4x4 pickup that he traded the Suburban for. Praying that the Lord's will is done ... but also hoping it sells! We don't need a 3rd pickup!!! --Like Joshua and I agreed on, Rick does NOT need to be a used car salesman! Goodness knows that he would want to keep just about every vehicle that came on the lot!
This life is not easy - even if he is active in his own care. Thanking God daily that he is high-functioning, and able to be active. HOWEVER, it would be good to fit into a support group - to discuss all our emotions and struggles with someone who really knows and understands what we are dealing with. Or to have some help occasionally - physical, mental, emotional, financial.
We have been told - oh when he gets worse you will qualify for ... ARGHHHH!!!
Who decides that he WILL get worse? What if God allows him to stay at this high function and activity level for the rest of his life???
We know other ESRD families that are in the basically the same kind of boat we are in. And they are just as frustrated as we are.
I may not can create programs that they and we can qualify for now ... but goodness! There should be a way to bring us all together and have a VOICE!!! --Lord knows i have a big and loud mouth! LOL
I know that jobs and home and school along with distance and lack of money cause us not to be able to get all together as much as we would like to. I understand that. In my heart, we are all together all the time! But i just want to say that I love my children and my grandchildren, and i really, really, really miss them! Sigh.
