With only three days left before the kids and I go to Washington, I am getting nervous. In my head, it seemed like a good idea and one I was comfortable with - leaving Mike with our aide ffor the 3 days we will be away. My mom and her husband, along with my brother will be in and out those 3 days, so they will not be alone. I also spoke to Mike's hospice nurse so she was aware and I will be giving Elaine (aide) her direct number in case of an emergency. It's been 5 years since the kids and I went ANYWHERE for more than a night, and at that time, Mike was much healthier.
I'm sure things will work out, but I can't seem to shake the nervousness that I am beginning to feel, as natural as it may be. We will be back home before I know it, and all this worry will be for naught. I just hope that my time with the Senators/Represenatives will be worth it.
