Best friends

on January 30, 2012

Today was the deadline for us (Husband, Son and me) to ‘sign’ our agreement with the nursing lodge, to ensure that the room Husband is in for respite, is, as of tomorrow, permanently his room. This has now been done.

The only way I could cope with this was to keep reiterating to Husband that he could come home any time and that Son and I would enable this and that we would not abandon him.

Husband was home here for much of the day before we had to go back and sign the forms. There was a lot of talking, a lot of silence and a lot of withheld sobbing, but we got through and I took him back to the nursing lodge. I just rang Husband and he is okay – sort of.

Tomorrow, Son and I go to Perth for 4 hours of pre-op. appointments before his scoliosis surgery on 14 Feb. Son can’t wait for his surgery so he can be straight again. It’s all pretty weird timing I guess – good in some ways, not-so-good in other ways!

This blog was initially a bird blog, with a bit of humour added. I didn’t know, when I began the blog, that the above crap was situations were going to transpire so fast, so, for the birding followers, I apologise for these diversions.

Husband has always been my best friend. He is my best friend. Son comes a close second.

The three of us.

    We can’t divide our life into portions because they tend to overlap. It’s all good to read.

    Wishing all three of you the best in the coming difficult month.

    I agree with Tilly.

    Blogging is about what you want to talk about and share, be it Birds or Family. There are bound to be times of overlap.

    There are so few people in this world doing what they should be doing – you should be loving and nurturing – and you’re lucky enough to do it (with your family AND your Birds).

    Yes overlapping is good – it’s life as it happens isn’t it … no rehearsals, no re runs – this is it – life as we know it – the good with the bad, for better for worse. All the very best to son for his op

    I probably came for the birds, but stick around interested in this amazing life you’re living. Julie I think you are so very strong!

    Julie can you tell us the story about how you met your husband….I want to know how he became your best friend. I love reading your blog as I look forward to reading every word you write about the birds, the animals, the family – you can overlap as much as you like.

    Julie, you couldn’t write about one without the other, it is all intertwined and it is your life. We love you for sharing it. ~ Lynda

  8. Love the overlap. Life isn’t lived in compartments. I’ll bet it broadens you reader base also. Great picture of the three of you!!!

      Yeah, that’s supposed to be the picture that accompanies comments I make on other blogs but, instead I always end up being that red devil avatar/gravatar! I will figure it out eventually – hopefully!
