The Lack of movement

You know it's bad when nurses tell you to go to the dr.  It's been 6 weeks yesterday since mom's major heart attack.  Needless to say stress in the entire family is high.  I woke up one morning with the side of my neck stiff. I started stretches etc.... to loosen it and hopefully make it better.  Well, 2 weeks later I am unable to move my neck but a fraction.  In training to learn to help care for my mom and her Heartmate 2 last night the VAD nurse told me to go to dr.  I got an appointment this afternoon and had to cancel.  Now I have to wait til 3pm tomorrow.  But at least I got my own dr.  Thank GOD!  There is a Doogie Howser at the practice who think he knows all.  He wouldn't give me antibiotics while I was pregnant with the twins but he wanted to put me on cough meds with codiene!!!  Excuse me?!? Needless to say I suffered until the sinus infection went away. 

I know I'm rambling. I'm sorry, but I started a new book today and I'll post a blog review as soon as I'm done.  I believe after I finish this book and finish my training for caring for mom, every other book I'm going to go back and read my favorites and post reviews on those.  What do you think?


  1. Tobi, you are a wonderful daughter. Take care of yourself so you can be at your best for you mom. hugs to you both! XO

  2. Thanks Jen. I'm just the secondary care giver but my sister will need breaks etc.... Thankful she's a fulltime mom so she is able to live with my parents for the first few months after mom gets home. Although, if it were up to mom she'd have been home a while ago. LOL. <3
