My dad is ill, in home hospice for one week now after 4 days in hospital
his wife not coping well with this challenge.
wants to put him in the nursing home part of their retirement community
In lockdown due to virus.
no visitors for a dying man.
doesn’t work for me.
Rage, frustration, overwhelm.
pick a card any card.
trying to be adult,
exploring options, alternatives.
The caption for the photo came up when I attempted to insert the drawing’s attribution (its free from Pixabay, thank you). its the note I wrote when I left a delivery earlier this week at their place. Strangely appropriate.
Peace and healing to us all in the overwhelm, which is today’s Ragtag Daily Prompt
I started this blog, curioussteph.com in 2017, with the intent of exploring both inner and outer curiosities. This was the beginning: By day, I'm a retired family physician turned body-oriented psychotherapist. I garden, travel, am owned by 2 elderly cats, figure skate and am training for my first triathlon.
Three years later, the two elderly cats have crossed the rainbow bridge, and we now have an 11 year old adoptee, Ziggy. I'm done with triathlon and skating for the time being, and I am still physically active, running, biking and walking. It's now the time of the coronavirus, which is affecting us all. Coincident with that, my 90 year old father's replacement aortic valve is failing and he is now in hospice care. I anticipate a variety of current writings, and some of the focus may be on how it is now, with a gravely ill parent, and the constraints of covid 19, and how it all hangs together. We shall see.
