I came back from house sitting last Thursday but stayed another night at my girlfriends place. Her and her husband went to the beach from Monday through Thursday but they were so tired and I asked Gail if I can stay another night and she was happy about that. Their daughter who is 40 yrs old was suppose to be with me last week but she told her dad when she looked at me in the car and said I'm not going and took her stuff and went inside her apartment and her dad told me that she was acting like a 2 year old. She had problem more like mental problem when she was born. I've known then for 36 years and her stepmom use to be my AVON lady a long time ago. Gail and her husband and my husband and I were friends for that long. Gail and I joke around a lot so when she called me and asked me how things were going I told her I burnt down the house and killed the cat and through Joe's computer out the door and we both laughed. Gail is my best friend. We go shopping all the time.

Mr. Spot had a good post op check up. All is healed and well. Thank goodness!

Mom had a good day yesterday. Weíll see what today is like.

Monday Ė Happy Memorial Day. Going to grill out, so no hot house.

Mom had a much better day yesterday. Just hoping that the medicine is starting to get to a therapeutic level.

Enjoy the day. Hope it doesnít rain!

Sunday Ė Thunderstorms overnight. We didnít have severe ones, but there were south of us.

Sunday and hope to have a calm day. Just want to rest.

Did get Mom and Dad out for supper yesterday. That was nice.

Mom had a huge melt-down last night. **SIGH** But eventually wore herself out and got some sleep.

LYNX: Thanks! At least, no matter what, it's FRIDAY, right!

Have a fabulous long weekend.

Friday Ė Yesterday was a warm day! Mom went outside for Ĺ hr. Enjoyed it. Much calmer today. Thank goodness.

Am hoping that the contractor shows up today to finish the sidewalk (still needs to be poured, and the back steps need to be replaced).

The carer will be here soon, so going to get ready.

Wednesday Ė Dad has his dental appt. That went well.

Mom did NOT have a good day again, but I think thatís because she hadnít slept Monday night. Weíll see how that goes.

Warm here. Near 80! Not too bad, but itís getting more humid.

Supposed to be near 80 again. But more rain. Oh well.

Thatís about all the news thatís fit to print from here.

Tuesday Ė Well, yesterday was a completely gorgeous day. Mom and Dad actually sat outside for Ĺ hr. in the afternoon. It did Mom a world of good. DAD TOO!

Today Dad has the last of his impressions for his dental prosthetics. Hope all goes well. Donít need any problems.

Rainy today. THAT is not a good thing.

Right now my heart is breaking. Mom did not sleep all night and this is rough on Dad to say the least. Itís rough on us all. Dad is at a point where heís given up. He wants to put her in a nursing home, so thatís something we will work on today. Iíd already looked @ a facility that has Memory Care and is 5 min. away. As I explained to Dad, that is a GOOD thing because then we can stop there anytime Ė they wonít know when Ė so that will keep them on their toes. That is utterly important.

Anyway, thatís how it is.

Monday Ė pretty relaxing day. Mom is totally confused but was calmer today. That is a blessing.

Had a pizza party. Everyone wanted a pizza, so who am I to argue with that! NOT ME. I didnít have pizza, but thatís all right. I was glad to stick to my plan so I stay feeling well. NEED TO DO THAT for sure.

Well, back to the work week routine. Jeanine will be here shortly.

If Dadís car isnít ready today, will ask her to stay on Tuesday w/Dad when I take him for the rest of the impressions he needs for his dental work.

Hereís to a mundane Monday Ė is there such a thing??

Today hope to relax a little.

Saturday Ė Mom was confused most of the morning yesterday, but it went all right w/the carer. Had to take Dad to the bank, but he didnít want to tell her as she gets so anxious when heís away. Evidentally she saw us pulling out of the driveway. Oh boy. The carer said she just paced the whole time (we were gone about 20 minutes). I donít know what sheís going to do when he has his teeth extracted. SIGH

Gorgeous day. Tried to persuade Mom to take a walk w/me outside. Nope. But I took an outside walk. Felt so good.

There is a neighborhood garage sale today. I know it will be super crowded, so will just have to stay in till itís over. Crowds overwhelm Mom.

Otherwise, hope to catch my breath this weekend.

Friday Ė Yesterday was another challenging day w/Mom. She just has major meltdowns and there is no way to deal with it. I called the Dr. and we discussed getting Mom on a new med, and I will pick it up tomorrow. I hope this helps.

Momís carer will be here shortly. PRAYING that it works out. Sheís an angel for sure; Mom just has a bad attitude about needing assistance.

Otherwise, all I can say is TGIF!

Thursday Ė Had to talk again w/Dad. He wants to dismiss the carer. She is an angel. I told Dad, there is going to be a time when Mom requires more and more help and WE CANíT DO IT ALL. When that time approaches, that is NOT the time to begin from scratch . . . again . . . to find a competent carer. Just NOT the time. So I insist that we see how Mom does on Friday. If she reacts badly, then weíll talk about it. But I am NOT going to let a great carer go w/o a fight. **SIGH**

Feel like I should have a bucket of spackle on me at all time to repair wall holes from head banging! ARGH! This truly is difficult. **SIGH** And honestly, on a little bit of a selfish note, it makes me think of what MY future may be too. BUT, if thereís one thing SP has taught me, thatís to SNAP OUT OF IT and live in the moment. So thatís what Iím doing. And taking good care of me to the best of my abilities!


Got out for a walk and feel a little more clear-headed.

Wednesday Ė mild weather and the sun was out, so got Mom and Dad out. Dad wanted to go to Aldiís so thatís where we went. Mom did pretty well w/the walking.

Very confused last night, but was still in a positive mood, so grateful for that!

She was uncooperative with the caregiver this morning, and that carer is an absolute angel. Dad wants to cancel, but I told him NO. Both he and I need the break. If Mom chooses not to interact w/the carer, thatís her choice, but at least thereís another pair of eyes Ė objective and fresh eyes Ė looking after Mom. **SIGH**

Got my walk in again this morning. Love the earlier sunrises as I am always treated to such a beautiful sunrise most mornings.

The coupling for my emergency brake on the van is kaput. GRRRrrr. Have to bring it in on Sat. for repair. The regular brakes work, fortunately. **SIGH**

Tuesday Ė got a good walk in this morning before the day started. Helps so much.

Mom had settled down a little bit in the morning but was agitated (nothing like her Sunday night meltdown) but Dad and I managed to get her calmed petting Mr. Spot. Thank goodness for that little fur baby. I think they intuitively know when someone needs their comfort because he stuck by her side. Blessings to my little man

Monday - nice day but Mom had a huge meltdown last night. Honestly, my heart is breaking, because we really have to consider what the next step is going to be. Waiting to talk w/my brother early this morning.

At least I got a good walk in this morning. The sun is up and itís going to be a nice day.

Jeanine, the carer, is here this morning pretty quick, and I pray at least that gives a little respite this morning.

Char: It is cool here, too, but supposed to warm up. Sun is out, so I suppose it will.

At least there are no appointments this week. Thatís a HUGE blessing. No appointments and no surgeries. Hallelujah.

Friday Ė Well, another not-so-good day for mom, but she did ďsnap out of itĒ a little quicker. Just had to sit w/her and listen. Good thing no appointments yesterday.

Today her carer is here from 7:30 till 12:30 pm as I have to take Dad for his dental impressions and that could take awhile. HOPE that it works w/the carer.

Otherwise, am VERY glad itís Friday.

Thursday Ė Well yesterday was an epic fail with Mom. She wouldnít get out of bed until I got home w/Dad after his appointment and convinced her she had to eat and just wash up. She did. PHEW.

Otherwise, Jasonís post op appointment went well. All is a-ok.

Closer to getting Dadís extractions scheduled, FINALLY. Tentatively set up for 03 June w/the oral surgeon, but now have to coordinate w/the dentist for placement of the appliances after extraction. UGH I will be glad when this is all in the past!

NOW the surgery had to be postponed till 17 June so both Drs. would be available. Just shoot me now. I have my physical, too, and a mammogram which has to be scheduled. AAAACCCCKKKK!

Wednesday Ė Again, have to move @ warp speed. Momís carer comes tomorrow @ 7:30 am. Jason has his post op check up @ 8 am. Then home to get Dad to the Dr. for his blood draw. Depending on the lab results, the Dr. will tell him how long to be off the Coumadin. THAT will then be used by the oral surgeon to determine when his surgery can be done. It canít be done till at least June 1st, though, because the denture and bridge need to be done prior to the extractions. OY

Then hope to breathe!

Jason is feeling good, so very happy for that.

Tuesday Ė still not date for Dadís oral surgery after the consult. Heís on Coumadin, so have to get a blood test done and fax the results to the oral surgeon. Then depending on the results, heíll be off the Coumadin for 3-5 days, then have the surgery.

My brother came to stay with Mom while Dad and I went for his consult. Hmmmm . . . again, TIRED. All righty then!

JUST got word late yesterday afternoon. BENIGN BENIGN BENIGN. Did I say B-E-N-I-G-N. Hallelujah. Soooooo relieved. Now I can breathe . . . a little.

Mr. Spot is the happiest of campers w/his cone of shame RELEASED! HURRAY. He celebrated by rolling around in the grass. EWWWWW! But made him happy.


Off to the hospital for surgery #2 for Jason. TIRED. ĎNuff said on THAT one,

Will update later.

Monday Ė not much sparking today. Jason left @ 4 am (after we got up @ 3 am!) for the airport. Carer here @ 7:30 am so got a walk in. Hurray!

At least yesterday was a bit relaxing. IF you call mowing the lawn relaxing! But Iíd made short ribs in the crock pot, so no fuss cooking yesterday. AND left overs.

Otherwise, not much sparking today.

Sunday Ė Happy Motherís Day!

Took Mom and Dad out for supper yesterday as we figured that would be better for Mom than dealing w/the crowds tomorrow.

Gorgeous sunny day, so for that I am glad.

Hope you all have a wonderful day. Itíll be an early night tonight as Jason leaves for Albany NY in the wee hrs. of the morning better known as the butt crack of dawn.) **SIGH**

Friday Ė beautiful day weatherwise. Got an outside walk in and thatís a good thing.

Mom had a horrid morning. Calmed down by the afternoon. Had a Dr. appt. @ 2 pm and one of her meds was changed. I think that will help, hopefully.

Otherwise spent a good deal of time on the phone trying to coordinate Dadís oral surgery. First he has to have the consult. Thatís 09 May, and then have an impression made so the upper plate can be made. Making the plate takes 2 weeks. So, since he wants the plate in immediately after extraction, the surgery has to be coordinated w/the arrival of the plate, so the dentist can put the plate in. I hope all this is done by mid-June. **SIGH**

Oh, and did I mention Jason is going to Albany NY on Monday morning. Butt crack of dawn flight. Arriving home late (10:30 pm). Uh huh . . . surgery is the next day. Good lord in heaven! What can I say. Certainly not ideal by any stretch of the imagination.

Mr. Spot still goes into his bucking bronco impersonation to try to get that cone off. Poor boy. Not happy with it at all . . . still. Donít blame him!

At least itís Friday!

Thursday Ė cool and gray yesterday, but still able to get outdoors. Hurray! Had my dental visit and it went well. NOW to get Dad to his oral surgery consult on Monday so he can get those teeth extracted and move on.

Maybe . . . time . . . to . . . breathe today!

It is going to be interesting w/Dad and driving. **SIGH** Back in January Dad had decided that he wasnít going to sell the car yet. Thought it wasnít going to work and I was right, because as soon as the weather got nicer here, he is back to driving Ė but not long distances. SooooÖ. I am not sure how it will go (besides probably not good). He wasnít even going to tell me about it, but then the topic of ď. . . having to get an estimate to get the car fixed upĒ came up. Oh really? What is wrong with the car??? Thatís when he Ďfessed up (besides Mom was ready to spill the beans. Gotta love it . . . she canít remember anything but THAT she remembered. Oh well). THEN he tells me he has to drop the car off on Tuesday, 10 May. Geez, why does that date sound familiar??? Oh yeah, because Jason has surgery that day!!! GRRrrr. Who will stay w/Mom? So had to make arrangements w/Clara to stay w/Mom till Dad gets back (he has to make arrangements to get a ride back from the dealership because weíll already be @ the hospital. What . . . a . . . mess.

So thatís how that all went. **SIGH** When my brother comes we are definitely going to have ďthe talkĒ together. At least Dad wonít have the car Ė itíll be @ the dealership.

Wednesday - Dr. said Mr. Spot went well thru the procedure. Had 2 areas (starting to merge into one) that were malignant by nature (in other words Ė not normal) but he felt they were benign. Has them off for biopsy. Kind of like a brain tumor. Brain tumors can be malignant for the fact that they are not something normal anatomically in the brain, but NOT cancerous. So weíll wait to hear. He has a check in one month. Hallelujah. He slept most of the night. Not a happy camper w/the cone of shame, though.

Meanwhile, back @ the ranch, I am off to my re-re-check @ the dentist. **SIGH**

Sunday Ė Miserable weather. Cold, rainy, damp and cool yesterday. Looks like more of the same today. BUT we did get out yesterday. It was nice. Mom and Dad really did need to get out.

Have to get ready for another busy week. But it will be done!

Blessings.

So- so day out. Cloudy and still cool, but no precip, so not that bad.

Well, getting all my ducks in a row for the busy-ness in the next weeks. Did some big batch ooking so the freezer will be stocked.

Wednesday - Mr. Spot had his eye consult yesterday. He has a large cyst on the lid of his eye and on the inside of the lid. So, he will have surgery on the eye lid on 03 May. So that officially makes NO surgery free Tuesdays from next week thru May 10. **SIGH** I think I need a little sumthin-sumthin!

Gray, cool, dreary day yesterday. Sunny today, but cool. Thatís all right w/me, as long as the sun is out!

Carer here soon, so better scoot!

Hump day! PHEW

Wednesday Ė my appointment went well. No problems. Wahoo. NOT so good for dad, which means MORE stress this month and next. SHOOT! DONíT NEEED THIS.

Dad needs to have 3 teeth extracted on top and 4 on the bottom. Have the name of the oral surgeon Iíve had to use and have to set up a consultation. When the extractions are done, that will be a full day. I will have to go with him and my brother will have to stay w/Mom again.

All this has to be arranged around:

Spot surgery 19 April
Jasonís surgery 26 April and follow up appointment the next day
Jasonís surgery 10 May and follow up appointment the next day

I really pray that this is the darn end of it already!

Char: Definitely youíll adjust and I imagine it must have been pleasant not to have the WEDNESDAY meeting !

🐫 HAPPY HUMP DAY !

Saturday Ė what a non-spring day yesterday! Cold, snow, wind, sleet. UGLY. But hoping it will improve today Ė and it has Ė cold but sunny. Ok Ė itís 54 in Fairbanks, 32 here . . . PROBLEM W/THIS PICTURE! AGAIN!

No real huge plans for this weekend, but looking forward to relaxing.

Jason goes out of town to New York (Albany) on Monday (3 am has to leave), so definitely have a few things that have to get done, but want to have a low key weekend.

Friday Ė Well Mom and Dad went to the Dr. today. Mom has a torn (partial thickness) rotator cuff on her right shoulder. Iíve been saying that for a year! The Dr. suggested physical therapy, but Dad determined (and I agree) she would not cooperate. But will try to get her to move the arm . It will be a battle.

Well, Jason is going on another business trip Monday thru Wednesday next week. UGH It will be another busy week I guess.

The weather was very un-spring-like yesterday. Cold, dark, snowy, then a bit of rain. Today looks to be a repeat! DANG

Thursday - got a good night sleep. PHEW. Jason is back to the office today.

Mom goes to the Dr. today so weíll see what she has to say about the mood swings, but I donít think any of the meds are going to change.

It is 30 and snowing here; 50 and sunny in Fairbanks. WHAT THE HAY!!! Something is wrong with that picture (although my DS in Fairbanks just laughs!)

Hereís to a good Thursday!
