Feeling a Bit...Overwhelmed
This isn't me, but I know how she feels.
My husband had knee surgery yesterday. He is home and doing fine, snuggled under a blanket watching videos, leg up, iced and mostly immobile. My mother continues with a cough that won't quit and a painful case of shingles that won't...um...unshingle. The cat has an ever-worsening case of bizarre lesions on her poor little balding face. Significant members of our worship team will not be present on Sunday, so we need a plan. I'm still trying to figure out a sermon for this week. I need to prepare for mid-week Bible study tonight. Our vacation begins next Tuesday, and the nice friend/minister who was going to preach just called to (very apologetically) cancel due to a family crisis. My neice, who was going to take mom for a week while we are vacationing has had unexpected changes in the family schedule and will not be able to take "Grandmommy" till August. The car is making a funny noise. I've caught a chest cold and do not feel too well.
I'm off to call the vet (yet again), and then my mother's doctor. Then I'll try to call the district and see who I might get to preach next week. After that I'll call the social worker at the hospital and then....I'm not sure what to do.
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me...I can...I can...I can...I can..."
