It's past midnight And I Am Wide Awake, even while my eyes are drooping from lack of sleep... Finally couldn't stand them any more and got up to pull off the tight leg hose that will help keep away blood clots. I barely was able to pull off the single hose on my good leg, so I'm sitting here with the hose down around my ankle of my left leg, since I can't figure out how to get it off, without bending down beyond the 90 degree bending angle...which I had to have somebody tell me exactly when I should stop and move no further... LOL... Seriously, I have had no major experience in dealing with my health issues in such a continued concern... So, it's been a frustrating, but yet fascinating learning experience. I appreciate for maybe the first time, just how much care and support is provided to all those who cannot meet basic self-care needs. Sending out many thankful emotions to all of those in medical care, food service care, custodial care...and a great big hug of God's love to all nurses, surgeons, doctors and others who God has given them the gifts as well as the much-needed desire, to truly serve another.
