It wasn't just me and the dog today, but it was mostly family I was interacting with, so it was generally low stress. I did go to see mom twice today. Once with dad after lunch, and again in the evening with my brother, Jonathan. Cooper gets ... Read more

Had my salon date with my niece, Tigan today. Mani-pedis and other stuff that is too personal to share. Then we went to see mom at the rehab facility. I really didn't like the staff and the rooms are tiny. She was unable to use her C-Pap mac... Read more
