Great news. I bit the bullet and called my brother, who has refused to talk to me for over a week. He was open to me, said he loved me (back) and misses me and John and Lillian.
He agreed to sign the release of information, so the staff can speak with me. So it seems the new medication started this week is working.
And I ordered him a pizza, salad and diet cokes for a surprise dinner. Coordinated with his program. No judgment! This is his comfort food and food is our love language in the Monkman family.
I’m cementing our renewed bond with pizza. 🍕
Some more of my crocuses bursting open all around today- I believe those are saffron threads in the center of these beautiful white ones.
Thanks for the support everyone- things have finally stopped crumbling. My optimism is returning. And I slept at least six hours last night – interrupted, but still substantial.
