Never say never!

And will I ever really learn that? We've spent the last 2 days driving 15 hours to his parent's house. And I said I wouldn't make that drive again. However, I do think I convinced him this time that we need to just fly from now on. I was able to rig up a heating pad to an outlet and that helped. He did not have problems with incontenince and the weather was good the whole day. We spent last night in a hotel which gave us some rest.

We used to arrive here and just collaspe in bed for the rest of the day, but we seem to be doing ok so far this afternoon.

He has started his new meds so hopefully that has helped with the incontenence.

Oh, why are we here? He called his mom last Saturday. It was her birthday. She started crying (as usual) and made him feel so bad he told her we would come see her.

He told me she said she wanted to see me, too.

Now, I do know that is a blatant was just his way of getting me to make the drive with him. I actually thought it was kind of cute. Not that I appreciate the lie....but that he wanted me to come with him. So, here I am. Thinking I will never make that drive again....15 hours in the cab of a pickup truck.....I'm way too old!

I'm sure I will be blogging daily from here to help me get through the stress of the visit. It's just what I do when I'm here.

And how is he? Well, his feet look worse to me. His stomach is totally bruised from the needles. And I've been researching hepatitis C which he has had since high school....and find that he is probably suffering some of the consequences of that as well (liver related problems). His attitude has been pretty calm for the past couple of weeks. I'm going to guess his blood levels are pretty normal. But then, how would we know since he never tests it? Sigh.

Other than that, life is good.

Do you know what happened to the other spouse blog that I love to read? I don't remember the blog name but I do know that she signed "Faith".
I don't remember the web address, all I remember is that one day, bloglines said that it was not functioning, and now it's not there at all. Have you heard from her?
