Life is busy, busy.

Tomorrow we are driving two hours to a funeral and visitation for DH's aunt. While I don't look foward to a two hour trip, It is what they do in DHs family to support one another on these occassions. He wouldn't think of staying home, so he will pack up his portable O2 and off we go. I think I am just in a funk about all the activity that is happening right now.
On a more positive note,DH had a bone density test on Monday and it does not show any signs of osteoporosis. The doctor is not recommending any drug for that. I am grateful for that since he has been on prednisone for 3 months now. He is continuing his chiro treatments and water therapy. He is not seeing a lot of signs of improvement but the Dr and the PT say they do.
Sunday is the last day for our priests. Their last mass is at 10 and then there is a dinner and farewell following that. These were the priests that were there when we went through RCIA and joined the church so they are very special to us. We are getting some new priests that I think will also be special, but it will be a bittersweet day.
Tonight we will be keeping our GD the 2 year old for overnight. That should be a bright spot in the day. Her mother and brother are running in a race early in the morning, so they wanted us to keep her until that is over. Then we will leave to go to the funeral. Hope to get home early tomorrow night since we will have a full day on Sunday.
So much activity as well as keeping up with therapy treatments. DH would not want to miss any of it even though he struggles with pain and shortness of breath. As his caregiver it does keep me on the move and I get tired. It has to tiring for him as well. Can use alll the support and encouragement I can get from my Sparkfriends. With all of this I try to focus on maintaining my exercise and eating habits. It definitely is a challenge!
To those who stop by, thanks for listening and thanks for your support. I can use it all!!!
