Hangin’ By My Toenails

I have felt awful today. My days of bouncing back are gone and over. My stomach hasn’t felt good and I’ve been coughing overtime. I gave up and did a breathing treatment and broke some of it up. It would be nice if I could get rid of whatever is there.

It’s hard to type so I’ll not be going into detail on anything. Cuz called and said her patient is unable to get up and down without help because he’s so sore. She’d planned to come tomorrow but figures she’d better stay close and send my CIL instead.

I’d done a breathing treatment before she called so I was very shaky and my voice was high and squeaky.

The Catz got fed this morning but there was enough left in the bowls this afternoon that I figured I’d let that be it for the day.

This afternoon, it clouded up and rain came down in buckets. According to Wunderground, there’s another system headed this way.

The fund is $74 away from $7,000 which means it’s $574 away from goal.

There are still payments coming in through the donate button for PayPal. If I felt better, I’d be excited.

I’m going to have to sign off here and do another breathing treatment. Over and out.

    Tommie, I’m wondering when your life changed so drastically; it seems to me it happened rather suddenly. Has it been a year, or has it been more? Seems to me that a year ago, you were going where you needed to without any problem – shopping, playing the organ for church, and whatever else you chose to do. How quickly our lives can change! Would love to see yours changing for the better!

      I’ve been sleeping on a hospital bed for about a year and a half. Just going and doing doesn’t mean I felt like it. The last Sabbath I played for church, I didn’t feel up to going but I made myself because it was Communion. As for changing for the better, that would take a miracle. The damage is done and it can’t get better. It just gets worse over time. Pulmonary rehab may help but it won’t heal.

    Hi Tommie …. I’m so sorry you don’t feel so good. Many prayers are going up in your behalf. Lots of love too. You are so very blessed to have so many friends and family members to help you. Getting to know you thru The Upper Room and your blog tells me that its your turn now. You have been there thru your lifetime for so many others. Even the Catz are little “fur angels” sent to bring you smiles and purpose. Keep Hangin’ in there … even if its By Your Toenails ….

    Tommie, good evening.
    I’m so sorry you’re not feeling well… hanging on by your toenails. :~}
    Hope your tummy settled down and you are able to eat some…
    your goal is close…

      I’ve eaten until I felt like I couldn’t eat any more and then I ate some. I’m trying my best to get back to my “fighting weight”. It isn’t easy, though, when the appetite isn’t there. Seems the graph just keeps going down.

      Yes, the goal isn’t far away now! I’ve been blessed and blessings to you, too.
