Leavin on the next train

This sort of is how I have  felt about this year.  But I realize you can't run from your problems.  Just have to face them head on if you can, or duck and dodge like I tend to do much of the time.
After much searching and trying to take advice of doctors, two epidurals,  and my own trying to cure myself with exercises, massage therapy, and two chiropractors, I finally went to an orthopedic and found out I had a badly torn cartilage on back side of my knee and along the outer side.  Everyone was treating me for Sciatica. So in Aug. I had surg and now am going to the Y three times to exercise in the pool and I feel I am doing great!!
Then on the other home front, elderly sister in law is slowly circling the drain so to speak and driving us nuts.  It is so hard to die.  We like to think we will just lay down and that will be it.  No we lose all dignity and get weak and totally dependent on others.  So far we are keeping her in her apt in a lower level of our home.  We have shared this house for over 6 years now.  It has pretty much worked out, but now we can't both be gone at once, and we have a baby monitor and life line, safety rails everywhere, so have done all we can on the safety department.  OK  enough on that,  now:::
Now where are my car keys?

Life can suck, sometimes. I know because I am dealing with stuff with my Judy. Not life threatening, but still a lot of work and worry. Sorry about your sister in law, but that, too, will resolve itself in time. You don't have to like it, and it would be okay to look forward to it. But just do what you can when you can. That is all we can really do.
