A Good January Day

Had the window open a bit yesterday. It was a warm and very rainy day. I love rain,but it’ January. Should have been snow. Today it is sunny and freezing cold. I love New England. LOL

My Traci came today, and over and above the things she normally does, she helped me get better sorted for immobility and moving around using a walker. She always does more than required, doing the extra things that really make a difference. She really is a genuinely good person, and we always laugh and have fun as well. Fun is good.

I am very fortunate to have her, and to have my friend Tess, who also does more than required. Driving me to appointments, keeping me company, just being there when I need anything. Unfortunately for her, I don’t have anyone else to share the burden of being friends with a chronically ill person who lives alone, but she is always willing to help, and always cheerful about it.

I don’t think I’m the easiest person, so am doubly grateful for both of these people who seem to like me anyway, and are so willing to help. I hope someday I can repay them, somehow. friends 1

So, enough of the sappy-do. I am going to see if I can get someone to come in for an hour a day just to do things I can’t, like maybe heat up some soup, wash up the few dishes, niggly things that are just too painful right now. Just til I have the surgery. We’ll see if it’s possible. I’ve contacted my case worker, but she is out today so left a message. Fingers crossed. It’s always difficult to have a stranger come in and do things that you’re meant to do for yourself, but needs must, as they say. Needy is not a state I am happy being in, but what can you do, right?
