Mom's been picking at the back of her neck. She finds a spot when she sits and thinks and worries. Bill is back at playing the field. Sandy called me Saturday night and had everyone worried about it. The medical team and I had been keeping track of it. So Sandy met me there Sunday about 1. Sandy said it looked better than the night before. So I washed it wiped it with hydrogen peroxide and put neosporin and a bandaid on it. I came back about 6 to change it and it looked a lot better.

She had a bath Sunday night so the bandaid was half off yesterday morning. I didn't have big bandaids so I had to use gauze and little bandaids. I stopped at the store and got some big bandaids before I went back.

Barb was there when I got there about 6. She had come just before Mom got back from dinner. She dumped in the new toilet and backed it up. She said she told the medical team person and she said she was waiting for someone to come up. I had to go looking for someone. The night office manager came up with a plunger. Here it was the dingbat that lives behind me. Between the two of us it wasn't going down. I finally called Tim and he got it right away.

Barb asked me when I was supposed to go back to Alabama. I told her yesterday. When I went down to tell the office manager that the toilet was fixed she asked Tim when I was supposed to leave. He told her that it depended on how soon Shannon felt better and when Barb got back from vacation.

Yes...sometimes what goes around comes around.

I am slowly writing out-of-town relatives and friends updating Mom's condition and new address. She tried to color her own hair the other day and ruined a sweater and her bedspread. She doesn't remember doing it.

It amazes me how much Mom can re-arrange after I have left. I have been getting a garbage bag of stuff every time I'm over there. Yesterday I also had a small bag and two big boxes.


Se over-flowed the toilet again yesterday - twice in 6 days. The director came up to talk to me. I gave her the lecture again and put up signs. I am at a loss on this one.

She looks better than she has in a long time. There's her sparkle in her eyes again and her hair is much better. But her incontinence is so much worse.

it appears that I will have to be the one to step up to the plate AGAIN and go take care of mom while Shannon has her operation. I will probably be taking care of Shannon, too. At least now I am numb to the fact that Barb - Mom's oldest and Shannon's mom - can't see to fit either one of them into her drinking/drugging schedule.

Mom had the sparkle back in her eyes. But the confusion seems a bit worse. She started to introduce me as her granddaughter. When I left, she was writing her name on the hallway walls to let people know which door was hers.

Barb took another $200 out of Mom's account to go to the casino. Mike will be moving Mom's money to a Huntington bank with Lisa as a co-signer. Then it will be over and done with as far as Barb getting cash. The charge card has to be returned. But that's something I am not going to worry about. I often thought of keeping track of the money that was taken. But I'd have to consider all the tp, paper towels, laundry supplies, using the washer, etc. She will have to answer for this, not me.

Shannon goes over 3 times a week and helps Mom get dressed. Sharon is paying her and soon will be paying her to do the laundry. Sharon is also paying the prescription bill and the phone bill. I'm glad she has the money to be able to do that. Harry and I sure don't. Barb does, but that doesn't count.

Michael will soon be sole power of attorney. One less thing for Barb to hold over my head; but, then, she never understood anything.

Mike and I finally got the kinks out of him getting into the accounts at Unity. Poor guy kept trying for 3 days.

I talked to Sharon. Barb swore to her that She'd do Mom's laundry. Nope. Mom doesn't want to get out of bed to take showers. Sharon will try to get the girls to come in the morning.

I got flak from Shannon. She said she didn't need to know any of Gram's info because she's not a child of hers. She told Sharon that she thinks everyone over the internet is going to get Gram's information. If I didn't send it out, I'd get flak for it. There is just no winning when it comes to Barb and Shannon. And they wonder why I walked away from them.

I got Mom's updated medicines from HAP and updated her book. I sent it out to everyone that I had an email for. Of course, Barb will be upset that I didn't email her. But no computer and no idea how to use one makes it hard.

I miss the Mom of 3 years ago. But I know that I have told her everything I needed to. She knows I love her. Sometimes I feel guilty not being there every day. But I know I was the last two years up until June. I did the best I could. I took her to doctors, sat with her at the hospital, did all the shopping, cleaning, laundry, weeding out. Gary called and left a message the week before last that all the stuff needed to be out of the house because the closing was last Monday. I did what I could the week I was there. I did what I could the last 2 years, knowing she would have to move, weeding out here and there so she wouldn't get upset about things not being there. I don't think anyone but Sharon realizes how much I did do.

My girls will sometimes ask if I want to go back up for now. They feel a little guilty that I am helping them instead of sitting with Mom. I have sat with her and did what I could. The Mom that's there sometimes doesn't even know I've been there.

I don't want to be around Barb or Shannon. Loose cannons will go off at any time. I value my life and I don't want to be dumped on anymore. I am sorry that things aren't what they used to be. I miss the holidays of even 10 years ago. I won't take the blame. Yes, I was in Alabama for awhile, but I still kept in touch and always came up a couple times a year to be with them. Even Glennie got to be different. It was so much fun at first. But it's been about 3 years since it's been fun. Since the time Barb got carried away with "Saturday Night Live." Everyone but Brendan almost shot her that night.

I will call today. She used to call me whenever it had been a few days since I called. She no longer really remembers how to dial.

I can't help but think that it's only been a little over 2 years since she started going downhill. In the spring, she had me make an appointment with Shelley to re-do her will, give me power of attorney, and put the house in all our names. When the paperwork was ready in July, we went to get it. Shelley had to step out of the office. Mom looked at me and asked why we were there.

Then, in September, she came home to find her container where she kept her money out of the front closet and in the den all thrown around with money missing. Then she went to use her long distance phone card and was told there was no money on it. She suspected Barb. She had given Barb the numbers when she had her last operation so Barb could call Uncle Frank. I called Barb and asked her what she did when she made a long distance phone call. She read off Mom's phone number to call and account number. And the neighbors would tell Mom that Barb would come over when she knew mom wasn'r home,

Nothing except the message from Gary. I felt as if he were a bit condescending - he usually doesn't call someone unless he thinks they're not living up to what he thinks they should do. Yes, Mom's taking Sharon's time. But it's only been since the end of May. I'm still putting in my time on Mom down here and going up there and doing stuff. He forgets that I've done this for 2.5 years now, every day.

I got a message from Gary to have Tim get out of the house what I want because there is a closing date. I know that and Tim's made plans. Every once in awhile Gary decides he's going to remind us that someone's got to take charge and he thinks it's him. Sharon and I have been doing just fine.

Mom was good Monday-Thursday. She had her sense of humor back and seemed so much more herself. I mentioned to Sharon and she shook her head. When I was there Friday and Saturday, I could see the depression and forgetfulness again.

Mom does still ask about Diamond. I feel so bad that Barb and Shannon are the reason she's not there.

I tried to check into health care and ended up so confused. I made an appointment for Nov. 2 at 10:30 to talk to someone.

Sharon is taking her to the doc tomorrow and I can't wait to find out what he says. We agree about Mom not needing the meds Shannon put her on - she sounded drunk. Barb knows she can't get anywhere with us so she's trying to do it through Shannon. Tim got Diamond yesterday....I better not hear anything else from her in a LONG time.

Her party went well. She seemed more herself than she had in a long time. But she left early and went to bed. When I came over the next day, she couldn't hear at all. All she did was sleep. Sharon was there and I told her that Mom wouldn't remember me there. She didn't.

We finally got Barb and Shannon to take her to the doctor Friday. They cleaned out her ears, gave her a shot for her back and Zanax. When I asked how come the Sertaline was lowered to 50 mg, Shannon got nasty with me. She insisted it was never 100 mg and that they were in charge and that's how it was. The doctor's office called me later and told me that it was their mistake and it would go back up to 100 mg. Meanwhile, I got a text from Shannon that said I was to have Diamond out by Monday.

There's no was that I would have been able to get there before tomorrow, and with Helena sick that's not happening.

I did get a chance to write out some of her bills this morning. I know she is going to the casino with Sharon and Barb on Thursday. I texted Sharon asking if any one took in the Comcast equipment and never heard back from her. I know all too well that she's doing the brunt of the work right now. I did it for a year and a half before she finally had to step up because I'm not there. I just can't do it all any more.

Sarah saw her yesterday. When I talked to Mom today, she remembered going to a show last night, but had to be reminded about Sarah. She thought I was in Canada at first, then remembered. She kept asking when she'd see me; she didn't think she'd make it without me.

I finally got the Medical Team payment arrangement straightened out.

Sharon is having problems with Barb saying she is going to do things and then doesn't follow through. Barb said she would take Mom to her last doctor appointment. Sharon said she was going too because there was paper work she needed filled out. Barb never showed up but called Sharon twice during the appointment wondering how it was going. She then called again asking Sharon to pick up things for her at Big Lot.

Sandy and Sarah made plans to eat with Mom today. Barb saw the note and made other plans for Mom to go out.

Justin made the comment to Sharon that he would take things from Mom's house that no one wanted so he could give them out as Christmas presents.
