We spent today in Melbourne for an appointment with the infectious diseases specialist who is treating G’s hip infection, for blood tests, x-rays and an MRI. We will get those results next week.
I am tired. It takes about 12-14 hours a day to do everything I need to do to care for G and get all the jobs done around the house. And that’s when other people aren’t making extra work for me.
It feels like others are able to just go about their normal lives. Australia is largely protected from the worst of the pandemic and these days, restrictions are relatively relaxed. People are moving about and moving on with their lives. And I am standing still.
I let the day go by
I always say goodbye
I watch the stars from my window sill
The whole world is moving and I’m standing still
