15 minutes


Afternoon all, we are okay.

This afternoon when I woke up, I had a little bit before my beloved woke. I ate, and started the coffee.

Once he woke, I helped him as much as I could, but did something different. I set a 15 minute timer, and went and sat down. I did the things I needed to take care of me for that time.

I then checked on him, helped him a little, and set the timer again. It is working. He is getting the help he needs, and I am able to rest a little between helping him.

I think that over the next 24 hours or so, that timer is going to be the most used app on my phone.

We are going to be okay. Hugs my friends. -L

No rest for the wicked


Morning all, it’s almost 4 in the morning here, and while Duke is the only one sleeping, the rest of us really want to be.

My Beloved is in just too much pain to sleep. It’s not fair, he is in so much pain. I’m angry, at the Hospital that convinced him for a same-day surgery option.

Still have to help him get up and to lay down, but he can only lay for a few minutes. I’m at my wits end, and if he doesn’t start sleeping soon, I worry for his sanity.

It’s a waiting game. That’s all we have, is to wait, and to pray. Wish it were happier news this morning, I really do.

I will post as I can over the next few days. Take care, my friends. Take care. -L
