Homeward bound

It's official. The womanchild is now a homebound student. We're still working out the details of which teacher will come to us a few hours a week and when. I know I'm also back in the doctor's office routine. We had ER followup with her primary care physician this morning. Tomorrow we have an ultrsound of her stomach. Thursday we meet with the GI specialist. Today, it was brought up that ovarian cysts might be the problem. I'll just be glad when we have a better idea of why she feels so bad.

The frequent doctor's appointments are too familiar. I wonder what new challenges we'll be facing with C. home all the time. Since she's no longer working and won't be until she's feeling better, she will be home a lot. Will she have the discipline and motivation to structure a day for herself, or am I going to have to ride herd constantly? What's going to happen to her social life? With me job hunting and not working full time, we're going to have a lot more time to bump against each other.

Oh well, we'll work it out as we go along. We always do.

i hope you do have some health answers about c soon.

and that there's grace in this time of sharing so much space and time together.

and i'm still wondering what grad school thoughts you're having? or did you reply and i missed it?

Cynthia, I left you a response here days ago, it deleted itself, and I was just too sick to try again. But I want you to know how often I think of you and the WC. It's a shame that her health and energy and wonderful state of being have to be marred by problems of the past, and I am hoping that resolutions are emerging.
