My husband is still ill but I’m hoping for a light at the end of the tunnel. I’ve had to put my writing career on hold while I take care of him. He is more important.

We have had numerous Virtual Visits with the doctors. On Friday, we saw and Infectious Disease Specialist who ordered six more tests, ie; six vials of blood. My husband says he feels like a pin cushion. We will wait for those results.

In the meantime, I’ve had to file for his Short Term Disability. I know paperwork is tedious for the Medical Practice, but they finally filled out the required forms and his Short Term Disability was approved. However, the same day, the FMLA was denied. Come Tuesday, I will have to find out why. They use the same paperwork as the Short Term Disability team.

I’ve had to pick up his chores such as mowing the lawn, paying bills and changing the furnace filters in the attic. I’m the one doing the driving and shopping.

There are days where I just want to sit down and cry but I can’t. I have to be strong and have faith. Prayers are welcome.
