I'm sorry to be out of touch...

I've had some issues of my own and now my Dad is in the hospital in Raleigh and not doing very well. I saw today that I've lost one of my blog followers and that makes me really sad. I'm sorry it's been so long since I posted, but I really couldn't help it until now. (Sitting in a hospital room watching nurses and techs come in and out all day leaves me lots of time to do computer catch-up!) If my lost follower reads this, please come back! I miss you!

My 85-year-old Daddy broke his hip over a week ago. He had surgery, but he's just not rallied yet. They finally got him sitting on the side of the bed yesterday, but he hasn't been up on the new hip yet. He's frail and old and we're very, very worried about him. He'll probably have to go to a nursing home before too long.

Me? Well, after seeing a very expensive Allergy Specialist, I have finally found the right medications to control my hives. They're not really gone - just covered up and manageable. When Daddy's situation is straightened out I'll do some more trial and error to see if I can figure out what's causing them. But, for now, they're under control as long as I'm medicated.

I'll be heading back to the mountains tomorrow so I can get caught up at home for a few days before I'll probably come back down here. So, bear with me. I promise to post as often as I can manage. Don't un-follow me, please! I love all of you!

I'm sorry to hear about your Dad. My thoughts are with you. So glad you found something to deal with the hives so they're not driving you crazy.

You've not lost me. Life is unpredictable and sometimes we have to give ourselves a break from what we perceive as others' expectations. You've got your priorities straight.

Take care... hugs

Will pray for you and your Dad. Last fall I was in the same boat with both of my parents so I totally understand what you are going through. Hang in there.
