I hope everyone is coping well. Humid here today. I have been spending last couple of days reading through previous blogs and trying to get myself used to the site. Day 5 of 7 day course of steroid pills and feeling wee bit better. Not how I was 4 weeks ago though. Still need to concentrate on breathing. On Tuesday I managed to get to bed, poor Chris, and slept for 13 hours!!! Can you believe that???? That was due to only cat napping on sofa for 2 hours at a time on sofa for last 2 weeks. Still getting my head round this and trying to get it all into context. Must admit in last 4 weeks since being diagnosed, I have let myself go. In sense of, been off work sick, staying at home trying to breath, telling family of diagnosis........ that was hard. Decided not to return to work, long story, and spoken to boss and they have been really supportive. Put in one months notice. Googled COPD like mad and only site that is the best is BLF and you wonderful people. Sounds cliché..... not meant to be. Also in these last 4 weeks.............. found out I am going to be a Grandma. Always wanted grandchildren. Oldest son told us last week that they are expecting a baby March 2014. Thrilled to tender bits!!!! Spending time with Natalie (my daughter) last weekend on mother and daughter weekend. We are so close ( all of us are ) and had a great time. At times giggling like schoolchildren. I remember years ago asking my children............ what have I taught/given you? They always replied............... you make us jump puddles Mum and see the rainbow. I want them to see them now. Today I put on make up, I usually always do because I go to work but of course due to being off sick........... let myself go. Craig, my youngest who is 24............... I have 3 children Stephen 31, Natalie 29 and Craig 24. I remember we got a cat because Craig hated being youngest and big age gap. *smiles*. Anyway, Craig came home after work this evening and I was 'made up with make up' and purposely all geed up. He isn't fooled. Wrapped his arms round me over the spag bol and said....... I love you Mum and we will do this together. See, 12 years ago, His Dad, my husband Stephen had accident and suffered brain injury. Lost his |Dad and house and I fought. Oh I am so sorry. I am really losing it. Made mistake of having a wine................. well 3 glasses so far tonight............... and getting too sentimental. Feel I have let everyone down
