Health Care Workers

If you have been reading my earlier entries you know that my OH was in hospital. He is now at home, and is having to use a walker once in awhile, and cannot change his position from laying, sitting and standing by himself. He is 6ft and me just 5 ft. so you can imagine what I have to do to get him moved. I know the correct way to move him, however, the muscles I didn't even know I had are shouting at me.

To all of the health care workers out there, I have a new found respect for the work that you do. Especially if your job description has these words in it, " assist patients moving from one position to another". Thank you.

I am getting quite a bit accomplished on a wall hanging that I am currently doing, so that is a good thing.

My Great grandson, Mum and Dad visited us last night, our first meeting with the little fellow, he is such a sweetie, will have to post a photo later.

We are back to seasonable temperatures today, with possible mixed precipitation showers.
Have a great Sunday,
Patricia

Hazel OH is other half, if you read my blog you will see that I use the same terminology when I refer to my husband.......

Pat I developed muscles in the most unusual places when I was nursing, do watch your back, it was a moment of distraction that finished my nursing career, I was lifting a patient with another nurse, I said one, two three, lift, I did she didn't and put out my back, it has been dicey ever since.

Interesting. I didn't know what OH meant either I just assumed it meant husband.. or other husband? *LOL* Hope he's able to get himself moving around soon. I can't imagine having to help someone that much larger than me to change positions. Do post a photo of the baby. I love babies.
