Such good news today.  Mom can now walk at 50% which I hope will reduce some of the burden.  It’s been tough for the last 3 1/2 months to do every single thing for her.  I’m glad she’s not cranky about but certainly the demands are high.

Tomorrow we leave for vacation.  Just her and I.  I’m hoping it will go well and I’m hoping we can make it.  I’m so utterly frazzled I’m fraying apart at the seams.  It’s ugly.  I realize I haven’t had days off for several years.  But until her husband takes her on vacation, if she’s here I’m on duty.  And he is a recluse so that’s unlikely.  Just trying to hold together and it’s not going well.

So we head right tomorrow (last vacation we went left).  We don’t know where we’re going or how long.  Lord Jesus, help us.  Help me.  Heal me.  In your mercy.
