Good Morning: I just came back 2 days ago and I had to spend up till now just getting over it. My elderly friend was a mess emotionally. She says she prays daily not to wake up. she is extremely depressed, has a hard time breathing and walking. I tried to help on any occasion that I could see or feel she needed me. She is a VERY, stubborn woman. She still drives and had the leaves raked before I got there. She talks baby talk now which I was surprised. Her voice is very high and child like. She is regressing and dressing up all her stuff animals with clothes. It was overwhelming at times. She would not let me take her out to lunch. She shakes and all she talked about was how she wanted to die and God gave her a horrible life.
DH is up in Detroit coming home soon. He is feeling over confidence and he can get snotty if I do not call him on it. Other friend in NY who has Hep C from a blood transfusion. I had lunch with her- I did not recognize her she has lost so much weight her face is sunken in. She looks like a size 1. She is trying to get into a trial for new drugs for HEP C. I am glad I went but I was so depressed leaving. I may not see these people alive again.
I am going to the gym now.
