How to avoid the flu and get back to work, says the doctor
A woman in her 70s who has battled a range of flu illnesses has decided to make her health care provider her employer, she said.
In a Facebook post, Mary Elizabeth Lasky said she was in a “very serious situation” but she wanted to stay close to her family.
She said she had been diagnosed with Lyme disease, which affects the body’s immune system.
Her husband, Robert Laskyer, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis last year and suffers from depression and anxiety.
Mary Elizabeth Lalky said her illness had affected her family’s health and she had struggled to balance her work and personal life.
“I am now a caregiver to my husband and two daughters, who have been with me for 15 years,” she said in a Facebook message.
I am grateful to the doctors, nurses, social workers and support groups who are here for me. “
I’m a good mother, I love my family and I am blessed to be able to do this for them.
I am grateful to the doctors, nurses, social workers and support groups who are here for me.
But most importantly, I am thankful for my husband Robert Lalkys ability to lead a normal life in the face of such a challenging illness.”
Mary Elizabeth said her husband is the backbone of her family, and she was also grateful for the support and understanding of other family members.
“We have all been blessed to live with this illness, to love each other and to help each other out,” she wrote.
“There is no better place to live than the Laskys home.”
Mary Ellen Laskier, Mary Ellen’s sister, said she could not believe the news.
“This is the first time in my life that my sister is a caregiving individual,” she told ABC News.
“That means that she has a job.
It means that they have money to support their families, so they are doing things for their families.
She said Mary Ellen has had a difficult time finding employment.”
It’s a blessing to have a job and a stable job that supports all of us, and I don’t know if it will be there for long,” she added.”
But I feel like we can move on from here.
“The Laskies, who live in the town of Middletown, Iowa, have been caring for their son and his siblings since May.
Mary Ellen and Robert Laddys daughter, Mary Lynn, who has been in the hospital for a few months with a serious case of Lyme disease said she felt very blessed.”
The outpouring of support is amazing, especially with what has happened to us in this time of need, and we are really grateful to all of our family and friends,” she tweeted.
