Sorry for being away so much. I have a good reason though. The month of May gives us nothing but disasters. First that car accident (Losing my car there.) Then Johanna had a fall on the stone kitchen floor, damaging her spine and hitting her head against the fridge. She is mainly in bed on heavy pain killers. Doctor estimates it takes 3 months to recover. I now do everything in the house. It very much tires me out. I'm not happy…
Hoping for better days soon. Just to let you know I'm still around and will return. ( wasn't there a general who said that also?) I'm the general here now. My cooking gets a bit different from before… Johanna says hello to you all!. So do I ! Of course my diabetes is gone crazy, high ups and very low downs. I worry of course. Thanks for reading this less optimistic report.

Hey JB I am new here, just got started on meds this week, I am a home health nurse. Call your insurance carrier for your wife and check for services and ask your phyisican for a order for home health care. You can receive a home health aid to help with bathing, and light house keeping during her recovery for a short time usually a few weeks. It is worth checking into. Plus phyical therpy and occupational therpy to get her back on her feet. Hope things work out for you Take care…Diana

Hope June brings better events your way. Can you have home health come and assist you? At the very least is there Meals on Wheels available in your area?
