A Tough Week

Lyn has had a tough week.

She had to deal with the move of day hab to a new location.  As we found earlier this week, that she is finding the move very stressful.

She also had to deal with her favorite employee there being out on vacation for the week.  Changes in who she's working with can really set her off.  She doesn't know it yet, but her current respite provider is going to have to reduce her hours because the fall semester at the University is starting back up in August.  Another respite provider has already identified and this one is someone Lyn's already familiar with which is a bonus.

On top of all of this, Lyn and Mom learned that a dear friend has only a couple of weeks to live due to an aggressive, metastasized cancer.  The friend's diagnosis is a shock to everyone and there's nothing that can be done beyond palliative care.  Lyn has been quick to cry about this for the past several days.  She's trying to process and to understand that this lovely individual who has been friends with Mom longer than Lyn has been alive will soon pass.  Even the activities and the efforts of the staff at day hab have not been able to distract Lyn for long.  It is hard enough knowing that this friend is in a terminal state.  It is even harder not knowing or being able to help soothe Lyn's grief.


  1. I am so sorry for everything going on, especially for the grim prognosis of your dear friend. Many hugs and lots of prayers of peace. Love you guys.

  2. Thank you for your kind words of love and support. We greatly appreciate them.
