Harry called after I talked to Mom. He's worried about Barb taking things from the house.

called mom to check on her. She was really confused as to where I was and where I would be living. Barb is over tonight and they will be going to the casino. No one asked for money. Harry thinks they went back to the bank.

I stopped at Mom's and she was at the casino on Monday. I talked to her yesterday when Sharon was there. We told her I will be back next week. She asked if I was coming over later. She said I can't leave because she depends on me too much.

I found out that Mom had an accident in church. She still forgets to put the pads on.

Harry called me yesterday afternoon and told me that Barb took mom to Comerica to take out money. When I called Mom, she gave me a lot of reasons and wouldn't say how much she took out. She said it was her rainy day money, it was to pay her taxes, etc. She then came out and told me that she could pay her bills. I know it's all things Barb told her. It bothered me and made me want to give up at the same time.

Mom went to the casino with Barb on Thursday. I stayed a few minutes and washed up the kitchen. I stopped by yesterday to bring the prescriptions. They were outside in the sun. I did vacuum, get some weeds up, etc. Barb dyed Mom's hair for her.

Mom had her life alert unplugged two days in a row. Today it was plugged in. She also unplugged her phone one day. She didn't remember how to make pepperoni roles when Sharon was over there. I was talking to her yesterday and she didn't seem to be comprehending what I was saying.
Today she told me she was afraid to be there at night. But she doesn't want to move.

I didn't go over yesterday or today. The girls are sick and I've been busy taking care of them and doing laundry. Mom is still picking at her head and making it worse. A lot of hair has been pulled out. I will call Dr. Barnett and see if we can talk to him, then make an appointment for Mom to go in.

Mom's been picking at her head. It looks like she's pulled her hair out. She asked me where her keys for the garage were tonight. (There are none. Harry had to help her find the remote opener.) She told Sharon that she's not moving; that she's the boss of herself. Gary, Mike, Joe and I all said at first that it was something Barb told her.

Mom, Sharon and I went to lunch at American House on 13 Mile and Kelly. Mom seemed to really enjoy herself and I've got my hopes up that she doesn't give us a hard time about moving in. We all would feel better (well, who knows about Barb?).

I haven't seen Mom in a couple days. i called yesterday: Harry had just been down there and she couldn't remember who was there. Sharon mentioned that when they went shopping on Tuesday, they saw a little baby and Mom said that it had been too long since there was a baby in the family.

I didn't get much of a chance again yesterday to stay very long. Babysitting and the time mom gets up coincide most of the time. At least I knew Kayla was there talking to her when I left.

She enjoyed shopping. Sharon was putting up a new mini blind in the kitchen when I got there yesterday. The old bathroom carpet was out and she had blue rugs in. Her eye is looking better.

When I got to Mom's, Cheryl was there. Mom's left eye and cheek were red and swollen and she had a red spot on her forehead. Then she said that she kinda remembered falling outside when she went to go shut the gate. I called the doctor, who told me maybe I should bring her in. Meanwhile, I had put ice on it and the swelling seemed to go down a bit. The doctor didn't really do anything when she fell on her knee, so I cancelled the appointment. Sharon will look at it today and see if she thinks Mom should go in.

I stopped back over after my doctor appointment and the eye definitely looked as if it would turn black and blue.

Mom called a little after 9 this morning asking what happened to her eye. She also asked if she fell because there is a spot on her head that hurts. Maybe it's time to go to the doctor.

Mom's got a big sore above her left eye now where she rubs and picks at it. I worry about it bleeding and not clotting.

She told Michael that I had taken her to see Delores instead of Sharon. Sharon will be trying to take her to some different places. I need to contact some myself and take her.

I got a little bit of garbage out of the fruit cellar and garage. I try to do it when Mom is sleeping or not home. I know that if she notices, she thinks I'm trying to "see her go". She's still trying to give away a lot of her stuff. She gave me a Precious Moments statue for Helena. I did take it because I know it is one that Helena seems to be drawn to. She tried to give me a vase today. It's not a favorite of mine and I forgot it.

Mom was dressed and her bed made when I got there with Helena this morning. It was difficult to get in because she had the table by the front door again. We can't get her to understand that we need to be able to get in if anything happens.

Mom and Barb made plans to go to the casino today after I left Mom's yesterday. She called me 4 times by 2 pm and another 4 times after 9:30. By that time, I was asleep with Helena and Tim answered the phone.

It still amazes me that sometimes she's right on and other times she's not. I wish she would consider an assisted living place. She enjoyed seeing Delores and knows that Delores enjoys it. I believe the companionship would do her a world of good.

She was up and moving when I got there. She had a good time yesterday. Sharon got a few things done for me and I am really appreciative. Mom called this afternoon and said that her and Barb are going to the casino tomorrow. I just hope Barb "steps up to the plate".

Sharon came over Mom's this morning to take her to see Delores and out to lunch. Mom has had the same sweatshirt on for three days now. I know she slept in it the night before last. She put a pair of shoes on that really needed to be thrown away - aong with the cane with the duct tape on it.

I stopped by for a little bit yesterday. I hated to leave but knew Sherry needed the car. I was going to either do her hair or wash the kitchen floor. But then she couldn't remember where her money was. It took about an hour to find her purse and count her money for her. Barb came over last night and drove her out to dinner. (Mom paid.) I talked to her today and she sounded good. She was thinking at first that Tim cleaned out the garage, but then remembered it was Steve and that he had a car stored in the garage.

I gave the money to Sharon yesterday and Mom never did ask for it. It reinforces the feeling that she gives Barb far more that anyone realizes, including Mom. She commented again this morning about how she wished Barb would have come. I told her that Barb prefers to go just with Mom. Mom said "Yeah, she wants me all to herself."

When I got there today, Mom thought I was coming with milk. Then she remembered saying she wanted money. She kept wanting to call Barb to see if she was going to the casino. She finally got through and was mad when Barb said she wasn't going. I felt bad for Sharon; I told Mom that we wanted time with her - we were getting jealous. Isn't it nice that you will be able to spend some good time with Sharon?? Her demeanor is definitely changing.

Mom and Barb were supposed to go to the casino yesterday. Harry and I got her together and we waited for Barb to show up. Mom had $255 in her purse. Barb came late. Pretty soon Cheryl called and said Barb was sitting in the back yard. When I went over Mom's this morning, she said that they just decided to go to lunch.

Mom called me a little after 4. She said she needs money to go to the casino tomorrow with Sharon. I mentioned that she had enough money in her purse yesterday. She said she didn't know if she spent any of it and that she needed an allowance every month. She only says that after Barb is with her.

Cheryl went down last night to give Mom her pills. Barb was there and asked if she brought down the
"CD". .Cheryl said she wasn't going to bring one down until she apologized to Kayla. Barb began to yell at Cheryl then and said that she guessed she needed to treat Kayla as "Special needs". I told Harry that none of them should be there if Barb is there. Harry said they planned to go to the casino today. Harry, Cheryl, Sherry and I got to Mom's after church and made sure Mom was ready. Barb was late and they didn't get on the bus. I don't know what is going through Mom's mind and heaven knows what Barb told her.

I took Helena over this morning. Mom was so happy.
Barb went over there yesterday after Gary got on to her the day before and wrote in the book that she is "stepping up to the plate". But Sandy called me at 4:30 asking to call over and tell Barb what pills to give Mom. When I called, Barb had already left.

By the time Lisa got over to Mom's last night, she was better. It seems weird that she seems to get off track when I'm not there for awhile. But I know that Barb always stirs the pot.

When Sharon got over there yesterday, Mom kept crying about Harry and Barb fighting. She was upset when I got there today, but seemed better when I left. She then called Sandy 3 times within a half hour. When I called her, she was down again. She tried to get a hold of Barb and Barb isn't answering her phone.

Barb again was supposed to come to Mom's. She was going to take her to church this morning. She was a no show - she has to get her taxes done on Easter, you know. Mom was disappointed again. At least Sharon came and got her to go to dinner with them.

I stopped and got Mom some money. When I got there, she was talking to Sharon. Barb cancelled on her at the last minute. And they were supposed to meet Bonnie. Mom looked so lost and disappointed. We brought Helena over for a bit and that helped.

I found out that Monday, when Kayla went down to give Mom her morning pills, Barb wouldn't let her and was a bit nasty. I knew it was overdue - I just hate to see it targeted at Kayla.

Mom and Barb were supposed to go to the casino yesterday. I know Mom has the appointment with the orthopedic doctor today. Barb was the one who really insisted on her going; Sharon is the one taking her. I will wait awhile and call Sharon first.

I did talk to Sharon. She said that Mom did seem a bit more confused since I've been gone. Maybe just going over for a few minutes does keep her grounded. both of us are amazed at how fast things happened. Two years ago, nothing was wrong.

Mom sort of acted a little confused as to where she went Sunday. The more she talked, the more I realized that she and Barb didn't want to go with Shannon.

After church, i stopped and made a key for the alarm people and some things from the grocery store for mom. When I got there, no one was there and Diamond was locked upstairs: THE SECOND TIME THIS WEEK. Lisa called to tell mom that she was on her way over to pick her up to go to Sharon's to celebrate Gary's birthday. It's good that she called. I suspect the casino, but...

When I got there about 11:30, Mom was dressed but a bit frazzled. Barb and Shannon had wanted her to make reservations for the casino for Tuesday and she was having trouble making them. She got confused on what day to make them. But she did have her money ready. She gave me a bunny for Helena. When she was talking to Barb, I got the feeling that Barb may have bought it for Mom. Barb did take down the St. Patrick's Day decorations in the window and put up the Easter decorations.

Mom is still picking at the spot above her right eye and she has two more spots on her forehead that she picked at and has raw. She also thought I was back from my trip.

I ran late yesterday (story of my life). When I called over to Mom's Sharon answered the phone. I didn't expect her back for another week. Even though she didn't feel well, she was there. I knew mom was in good hands. She told me that they were planning to go to the casino today.

Barb called over there later. She said she had laryngitis and couldn't go to the casino. Sharon called and asked if I wanted to go, but I have to babysit.

I got there fairly early because I went right after I went to the dealership. Barb and Mom were sleeping. I started a load of clothes and took down stuff in the basement. Mom got up and I gave her breakfast and her pills. Barb still wasn't up when I left. Instead of walking a couple steps to the mailbox, Barb put a letter to be mailed in the box that Mom doesn't use. Go figure.

I stopped by yesterday, thinking I had about a half hour to sit with Mom. She didn't have any milk and she wanted a shamrock shake for her and for Barb. She was thinking that Barb might come over to barbecue. So, my half hour was spent doing that. She did get dressed when I was gone.

I wasn't able to go there until 3. Barb was still there when I got there. Mom was sitting in the bedroom putting some of the icy blue cream on her knee. It looks better, but there's still a couple raw parts. I got out the neosporin, put it on and then a bandage. She seemed in good spirits.

I got to Mom's about 11 yesterday. Barb was still upstairs sleeping and Mom was sleeping, too. I made her coffee and English muffin, got her pills, and brought them to her. Diamond was checking out the muffin. Mom took a small piece off and gave it to her; she ate it.

Sherry sent me the pictures of Helena in a babushka that we took when we Skyped. I happened to have a brand new 4 x 6 frame, so I printed a copy for both of us and brought Mom hers. She loved it.

I was working on Mom's doctor log for Sherry. I looked at all the times others were able to spend quality time with Mom instead of doing the things that I do, like clean, shop, do bills, etc. It makes me sad to think that I'm not really spending quality time with her.

I came right from my appointment so I got there about 11. Mom was still sleeping so I cleaned the kitchen for her. When she woke up she was in good spirits. Her eyebrow and knee are looking better. But she mentioned again that she was a little down.

When I got there yesterday, Barb was still there. The garbage cans were still out front. She came out and said she'd move the car for me and she left. So...I got to bring the cans in again, feed the birds, shut the big gates. I got to the little gate and went to shut it and saw something out of the corner of my eye. I found the ring!
