2 Steps Forward And One Step Back

It seems that the days are whirling right past me like a tornado and I seem to be wearing a anchor of some sort. Do you ever feel like that? I do more often then I would like to admit.
Just like this little sparrow in flight is out of focus but all around it is in perfect focus. This is just how I feel. I think it is a little how Momma feels at the moment too.
Good News-Momma is continuing to heal. She needs to eat WAY more. She has lost 13 lbs in 3 weeks. Needs to walk more to build her strength. She isn't happy at the moment and so desperately wants to go home. The doc says a few more weeks. Still a danger of getting pneumonia.

More good news-I am done with antibiotics. YAY! bad news is I am not healed yet. I have 2 new issues. I have eczema. It has been quiet for 4 yrs and now has come back raging. Both hands and both feet. On top of this I have yeast from all the antibiotics and even have it in my right ear. Common for my treatments I was told by the doc. So now we start the steroids and the pro biotics to heal my poor system. The yogurt with cultures is simply not enough. This hurts almost as much as the thumbs did. The cuts under the fingernails is the worst part of it, but I am sure it will be over soon. About 20 more days the doctor hopes. I hope even more!

I have been working very slowly on a project that I hope to share a video tutorial of soon:) I will try and work on it a bit more this evening.
Making a few goodies for some happy mail for a friend here in blogland.
Have a wonderful weekend friends. I am hoping to catch the Pirates of the Caribbean movie with my sweet DIL. That should put a smile on my face.

Oh Pea I know exactly how you feel. I would love to tell the world to stop just for a bit, so I can catch up, or at least catch my breath.
Happy to hear your mom is on the mend. That is really good news.
As for your thumb, that is also good news. Now about this other problem...they inject stuff under your finger nail....ouch.
Hugs my friend.

Hi Pea! So happy your mom is doing better and you too. It is a slow process that we always wish would pass quicker but, hey it's going in a positive direction, right? Hope you have a great weekend! Hugs!!!!

PEA said...

Ha ha Tracy, yes make it stop.
No they don't inject stuff under my fingernails. I have cuts under them and they hurt.
Yes, good news is always welcome.
hugs,back my friend.

Every time I'm sick I feel out of focus, out of step, running on a treadmill getting no where! So sorry you're having this too, one thing right on top of another! Happy your Mom is improving and bless her heart I know she wants to come home. Fortunate you have crafts to do calling your name...keeping occupied is a good thing! Good thoughts that things will continue to improve for you and your Mom!

Well I am glad that I am not the only one that feels that way Theanne but sorry it is the way you feel at times too.
It is all getting better. One day at a time. Thanks for the prayers.
