Arrived at the polling place this morning at 6:40. There was one man ahead of us. Polls opened at 7:00 and people were starting to arrive. I'm surprised there weren't more there early but glad we were. My husband was number 1 in the precinct to send forth his ballot and I was number 2. I said my prayers this morning for Romney/Ryan to prevail and that God would inspire the undecideds to cast their votes for Romney/Ryan. I don't believe we can go through another 4 years of what we have now.
In 1960, then Senator Kennedy spoke in Manchester, NH. My husband was there to see him with his father. The next day he was president. Last night, Romney was in Manchester, NH! By chance or a methodical choice? I believe the latter. Romney is making every additional effort today to finish up the campaign and speak in different areas of the country. THis will be a long day.

MIL was up at 2:30 trying to get dressed. My husband made her get back into bed but she was up again at 5:30 a.m., half dressed and mumbling to herself. We've been tracking her blood sugar readings in the a.m. and this morning it was 146. Been close to that each morning. She was lethargic and I would describe her as "in a stupor". Maybe she does have diabetes and this afternoon we have an appointment with the doctor so there will be a lot of questions I"m sure. We will both go. I made her an egg sandwich and coffee and hopefully she will perk up.
Last night, after nearly 3 weeks of this, my husband and I just looked at each other and wondered how we were going to manage. There are other family issues going on as well and I just keep taking my meds and saying my prayers.
Also, last night, she said she had a visitor, a woman, sleeping with her. She sees people all the time and has for years. So this morning she asked us if we had seen the woman. Of course we hadn't. When she dressed herself this morning, she is braless with a dirty top. So I've got to help her with that. I"m thinking that this is what has been going on with her for sometime as when she was at the retirement apt, we would call her and she would be mumbling and not awake. So it will be interesting to see what is up.
Does anyone know about Hospice? I've been told that Hospice can come even if death is not imminant if the doctor prescribes it. At 93 and with all these health issues, you would think we would qualify. I know they have people other than nurses, like social workers and volunteers that will come and help. Thanks all!

So after venting today, and hubby coming home expecting me to go to the doctor's appmt and me exploding, a lot has happened. He took MIL to the doctor and I went to a decorating appmt at the funeral home. At 11:00 I called him and he had just gotten home with her. Her blood sugar was 172, way too high, her blood pressure too low. Nurse was very concerned and he had to go off and get some new meds, etc. So she is verging on diabetes which puts another wrinkle in the mix. This may have been going on for sometime, thus her feeling so bad on many days and sleeping all the time, dry mouth, excessive thirst. Constipation. At any rate, I have an appmt at 3:00 today and then going to guild tonight. She is not going to go to guild but stay home by herself and she should be all right. Later. Carol
