Mom is back at Morton Plant Hospital. Another fall. Resulting in a hematoma. Blood needs to be back to therapeutic levels. Prayer and healing energy, please. #mom #hospital #fall #recovery #caregiving #healingenergy #family #love

“Caregiver burnout” is not an apt description for me. I battle many moments of grief and at times, despair with my caring of my parents. I’ve written this post to battle the darkness. To give voice because silent and isolation is harmful. #caregiver #caregiversupport #caregiverlife #caringforparents #mom #dad #family #love

Mom is home now from Morton Plant Hospital. She actually did have a strain of pneumonia. Which antibiotics took care of. Now, further recovery and therapy.#mom #home #hospital #pnemonia #antibodics #recovery #healing #family

I brought Mom to Morton Plant Hospital to prevent pneumonia and reduce her INR levels. ...”Hey Universe! The Sheas have had enough this year. Give us a break.” #mom #hospital #mortonplanthospital #INR #pneumonia #health #family #mother

My Father asked me tonight, “When will I walk again?”. My heart breaks. “I don’t know, Dad. We’re trying. But insurance won’t help us for much longer. “ Dad replied, “ “Don’t be deterred. And keep praying” #dad #father #stroke #strokesurvivor #strokefighter #therapy #insurance #recovery #family #caregiver #love #family #insurance

The appeal I submitted worked. UnitedHealthcare reversed the rejection. Tonight, my mother is at Encompass Health for Short Term Rehab. Thank you. #mom #mother #rehabilitation #encompasshealth #physicaltherapy #occupationaltherapy #speachtherapy #recovery #family #love #caregiving #healing

To state publicly and clear. My parents in sound mind and understanding. DO NOT want to be placed in a nursing home. Their lives. Their decision. And that is what matters. #mom #dad #family #caregiving #homecare #love

Spent my day trying to determine why UnitedHealthcare approved my mom for Acute Rehab last week and this week they denied her. I’ve submitted an appeal. UHC please help my mom. She needs Acute Rehab. #mom #mother #hospital #rehabilitation #fall #insurance #appeal #acuterehab #care #physicaltherapy #therapy #recovery #family #love #caregiver

Mom is still in the hospital. While the Kyphoplasty seems to have worked. They are now trying to get Mom’s blood levels to a normal level to prevent clots. It’s been a difficult time for my Mother. #mom #mother #hospital #kyphoplasty #fall #pain #bloodlevels #recovery #therapy #rehabilitation #family #care #love #mymom

My Mom slipped and fell in the early morning. She is in the hospital now. No broken bones or fractures. She is staying overnight for observation and tests. My parents have been through enough. This is heartbreaking. #mom #fall #caregiving #family #hospital #love #son

This hurricane is adding to my tremendous stress of being a sole 24/7 caregiver of two parents. Trying to prepare and falling short. Too much. #hurricane #hurricanedorian #caregiver #caregiverstress #tryingtoprepare #family #parents #takingcare #florida

A moment of caregiving levity from my father. ME: “Ok Dad, I’m going to clean and change you now.“ DAD: “Watch out for booby traps.” #caregiver #caregiving #caregivinglife #dad #father #son #stroke #strokesurvivor #strokerecovery #levity #family #love

A question to simply gage interest. If I were to teach a one time acting class for adults, whom within the Tampa Bay Area would be interested in participating? #acting #actingclass #masterclass #gaginginterest #exploringideas #theatre #theater #stage #actor #actors #instruction #actingteacher

Last night Dad purposely wiggled 4 of his left toes. Today, after help sitting up. Dad sat at the edge of the bed for 15 minutes with minimal support from me or the therapist.

Some mornings, like today, as I wake, for a second or two I forget my father had a stroke and my caregiving duties. Then I remember and the punch in the gut feeling returns. #stroke #strokesurvivor #dad #father #caregiver #caregiving #caregivinglife #family #caregivingresponsiblity #responsibility #love #duty #ilovemyfather
