"" The Exhausted Mom: Down & Out

April 30, 2012

Down & Out

I am so down lately.  

Been busy dealing with a fall that my mom took recently that had her in the hospital.  Luckily she was with her friends when she fell, so they were able to call 911 right away.  She had surgery, and is now in a rehab facility.  

I feel so sad.  

Sad that she's not independent for the time being.  I know that's the one thing that she takes pride in.  
Sad to see her sad and in pain.  Sad that I don't live closer to her to be there every day.

I know she will recover quickly because she's young and she's determined, but I'm still sad.

This is why I haven't been present lately.  I promise to be back soon.

  1. that made me cry :( we all feel sad but know shes got a great support system here while you are gone. i too know that she will get better soon and be stronger than ever!!! thinking of you and her always xoxoxox

  2. I know how you feel! I feel helpless all the way up here...unable to monitor her therapy and care. Very frustrating. I am praying that she recovers quickly! Hang in there!xoxoxo

  3. having similar issues with my 86 yr old widowed father. I love two hours away. I'll be thinking of you with loving thoughts
