Mom is settled (more or less) at the residential center. For as long as it takes. She's still not thrilled, but the drama has significantly lessened. Thank God.
I made sure to apologize (profusely) to everyone (especially sister and her hus... Read more

Ready to go home!
Mom is settled at the rehab center. In the same wing where my dad passed, so she is not a happy camper. My sister met her there, and got her settled and gave her cigarettes and a lighter, so mom is being a little less crabby to people. Sister le... Read more
Would someone make up my mind?!
For crying out loud, my mom called a while ago. Now they are keeping her in the hospital for more tests!? And she had been panicking thinking that her health insurance had lapsed because she hadn't paid it and hadn't wanted to worry me asking fo... Read more
mom's getting out of hospital!
And going to rehab center. And she is NOT happy. And I could not care less. I know that sounds terrible, but she refuses to acknowledge that she pretty much has done this to herself. And her cutesy act when they question her to check her mental ... Read more

Mom's scheduled for a PET scan this afternoon. She's treating the staff better today after I told her yesterday she needed to stop being so mean to them. They had psychiatric services in to talk to her-more drama. They told her one of her daught... Read more

Still dont know
What caused mom's accident? No one else was seriously hurt. She's not injured from the car wreck, but she's going to be in the hospital for a while. And she's not going home after for some time, either. Boy is she going to be po'd. I feel sorry ... Read more

What is wrong with people?!?!
I was awake at 3am, local time with my knees again. So I got on Sparkpeople. I do that, you know, instead of snacking now. I was Sparking along, leaving witty little comments, suggestions for people having issues I THOUGHT were mine alone, then ... Read more
I caved in this morning and called the orthopedist about the knees. The one that just got replaced is bothering me almost as much as the one that NEEDS replacing.
What did I find out? There is a reason why they normally do not do these on p... Read more
And NOT the fun kind. My weekend was amazing, thanks to my husband's generosity. My Monday totally stunk thanks to an overabundance of testosterone residing in the other bedroom of our apartment.
HOW do parents and teenagers ever survive? H... Read more
Since Hubs was so good to me, and I shopped until I almost literally dropped for my adopted nursing home residents' Christmas gifts, today I wrapped. After I shopped a little more. ... Read more
The Amazing Incredible husband does it-AGAIN
And I am still in shock. I went to the pharmacy this morning to get new rubber tips for my crutches. They wear out every 3-4 weeks. (Don't get me started on "durable medical equipment"-it won't be pretty) They are still out of stock. The hurrica... Read more
T'was the day after Thanksgiving...

I got lots of things that are being used early-memory foam mattress toppers (I got three king size ones 2" thick. Folded 2 in h... Read more
