Ferrett improving. Me an emotional rollercoaster mess [Jan. 19th, 2013|01:25 pm]
Ferrett is feeling much better, and is in a good ward with really helpful staff. He's been up doing the recovery laps around the ward. He's eating.

I'm a mess. I was filled with grouchy fury this morning--coaxed out of it a good deal by Erin, who insisted that we go for a jog. Getting out in the fresh air and sunshine was definitely a good thing.

But then I read a response from a friend on a completely unrelated topic on Facebook that felt like a mild scold to me, and I broke down and sobbed for five minutes. It's the kind of thing that usually wouldn't bother me at all, and today just tore me up.

This is all going to be long and slow in so many ways besides physical.

As I told someone when my mom was in the hospital this last time when she almost died, "I try to only have one freak out a day, and I try to get out of the room to do it." Emphasis on "try." Being a patient advocate is exhausting. Take care of yourself, too.
