Afternoon...last sister went home today...all is quiet here..it was a busy time...and will still be busy..so much to do..
Sarah..I am glad you have joined us again..welcome back..I sure know that feeling like thinking this is all curable, only to be hit with another round of "oh no it is not !"...Glad you did your trips in..
I will check in tomorrow..or the next day..I am super tired..didn't sleep well last night, and woke up to thunderstorms and rain today. usually IF we get any rain it is short lived. This has been HEAVY rain all day. We need it, BUT timing was not good for me. We had to switch out the double bed we put in for mom with a twin bed. Poor Ron and I were trying to move beds and mattresses in the rain.
Things are going ok with the sisters. They are over at the house packing up what they want...I don't even care what they take pretty much...
Dad looked better today than yesterday. Mom is actually being ok..things are improving. But Nancy...I loved your idea..
Well, I just tried to post a link and a survey and it posted twice. I reported that, and hope they take one down before we have two posts alike on here..then some people will be on one and other people on the other and it will get confusing !
Had a meeting this morning with the hospice people and the assisted/memory care people. It was a good meeting. Then I went downstairs to say hi to mom and dad..hang a couple of pics..do some other things. Dad is just back from the hospital and on antibiotics for an infection. And as week as he is, he managed to accuse me of stealing his money. It was just lovely. I work my butt off to make sure he is taken care of..and now I have my two sisters to deal with this weekend. This is just such a "lovely" time of my life.
thanks Mimi..yes, we are going through all those senarios..I have to get my social security, and also find out if I would get anything from the school district..etc..and then get back to my financial guy and get this all figured out..but dealing with mom and dad right now is just taking up most of my time. And yes, there is just one office of Social Security. We had to go to it when we went through this with my DH...hopefully I can get there early enough to beat the crowd..but I doubt it !
dad went to the hospital today for the UTI...but they are sending him back to the facility today...with instructions on the meds...hopefully they got him started on some.. ceceView Thread
Let's put the fun back in dysfunctional !- Mary Englebright
Thanks Mimi...yea, my phone is now sitting in rice. I read online how to do it. I guess it has to sit for 24 hours. Hopefully it will work again. I am not too worried, as it is also a cheap go-phone and prepaid. I don't use it a lot, but hospice does have it to call me when needed. So, if it doesn't work, I will just take it back and get a new one.
I have to take mom to the dermatologist today, so hopefully, things with dad will be worked out by then.
Mimi, we did go to a "seminar" on social security retirement. You know the kind...you get ads in the mail, I am sure, like this one. We found a good financial planner through it, or hopefully a good one. He has helped us to figure out what to do. I still have to go up to the social security office and get a print out of my status, but we did delay my DHs getting his social security, but did get him on medicare. The worse problem is having to go to the social security office. Long lines there.
yes, I am sad my daughter will move, but it is more than time for her to get her life in gear....so I think it is a good thing.
