G completely lost the ability to swallow by yesterday afternoon. He is home but hospice has taken over his medical care.
I spent most of yesterday on the phone, answering questions and dealing with other people's issues. At times I felt like I had no energy left for me. Luckily comforting words and hugs were available.
Today I felt I needed a totem.
Then I turned the phone off for a couple of hours and gave myself time to breathe and find that place of inner calm.
