Sharon will take the time to see what's going on during the afternoon and take Mom down to it. Mom enjoys it. This is where I wish I was up there more because I could do it. Heaven knows Barb won't.

The stool softener worked in the middle of the night. The water pills worked very well the next night. Shannon found her on the floor with her pillow and blanket. I feel so bad that I am not up there but Sherry and Helena need me more right now.

Mom's legs are really swollen and the doctor drew blood to see if it's heart related (?). I can't help but wonder....
I guess she had a really bad day where she was confused and she's usually only like that when something's not right.

I heard that Sarah skyped with Mom before we did. Sarah said that she was definitely talking off-color to her. I am concerned.

She went to Sandy's yesterday with the rest of the gang. They skyped with Sarah then with us. What commotion! Mom was talking off-color to Sarah and talking to Helena like she was still a baby. She looked so old to me and I know it hasn't been that long since I've seen her.

i asked Harry if he would take Diamond and he passed on that. So I try again. I hate to have to give her to someone else but it's best. Mom hasn't asked about her in awhile.

I haven't talked to her. But I know she heard the recording of Helena saying "Grandma Bunner". It's sad but I'm not sure she knows who it was saying it.

Sharon is back from Florida for a few weeks. She took Mom to get a mani-pedi. Mom said it was the best day. When they got back, she found a fake flower that she had put in her pants at the salon.

I did talk to Shannon yesterday and again this morning. She said that when she got there this morning that Mom was up with her bed made and her lipstick on waiting for someone to come over. I'm guessing that she slept good last night because she got something and was waiting for Prince Charming.

I talked to
Sharon for awhile yesterday. Both of us know what it's going to be like when we go back up. Neither one wants to think about it or admit it. I feel bad for Mom - she never wanted to be this way. And the sad thing about it is the fact that Barb started it all. Then she went down the line with the rest of us - starting with me - and so many of us have gotten to the point where we just don't care about her anymore. I won't back down; others are totally avoiding her. Dad never wanted it this way.

Mom sent Helena a Valentine card with $2 in it. Shannon must have helped. I tried to call this morning but no answer.

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.
