According to the paper work my dad had 3 appointments at the VA clinic. That means an hour car ride to get there. I had no idea what all those appointments were for but thought maybe one of them would be the physical he didn't get last week be... Read more

I so agree Koffee but ever since I retired about 20 years ago I've wondered how I ever managed to work full time, have super active kids, and sort of keep house or do laundry. Today I took dad to his whirlpool bath and then talked to them ab... Read more

Again today another fight about driving. You should have heard the swearing when he found out we moved his car to my house so it's not even there for him to see. And my mother also took a weird turn today. Every week there is a bus from the f... Read more

The hospital called this morning and asked me to come get him because he was not a danger to himself. That was all well and good. My mom and I set off and stopped all 3 of the quilt stores on the way and got my rows. (I hope that wasn't selfi... Read more

Thanks to so many of my Spark friends to was a little easier than it could have been. I should have made myself leave the house and not be alone with my own thoughts. But I stay home and did nothing except feed myself. I've felt relief ... Read more

I knew that one of these days my dad was going to tell someone he wanted suicide and they were going to take him serious. Most of the doctors we see around here understand that he is 90 and doesn't feel good, is having a terrible time walking a... Read more

I even baked this morning. I made a blackberry coffee cake. I used 2 small pans and took one in to mom. Not a great recipe probably won't make it again. But I do so love to experiment. So after a short visit with mom and dad I did a l... Read more

Well the zombie has been here just over a week. I put on my Happy Face and go deal with my parents. Then I come home drained and feeling completely overwhelmed. Putting on that happy face costume requires trying to walk normal in front of the... Read more
