Just when I thought I had enough to worry about my son goes and buys himself a motorcycle. Great.
This has been a busy week. My dishwasher is broke so I have been doing dishes by hand. Who does that anymore? And then the sewer backed up. There went $150 down the drain. When the plumber got it unplugged anyway.
But I had one good day. My friend and I went out to eat, shopping here and there and than to the mall. Thanks Charlotte.
Mom is in her easy chair . She is talking away. I answer her but we aren't really talking about anything. Maybe she is but I just don't get it. Since her feet have been blistered I have not been putting her in her easy chair much because I did not want to bust a blister. The last few days I started doing it more because almost all the blisters are gone . She doesn't seem to like it. She does not get comfortable and fall asleep like she used too. Getting her up and down is hard on her feet . They get bumped all the time. So she has been in bed a lot the last few weeks are more. I am trying to get her back on routine . It is not going so well. She got so sick all of a sudden than it takes so long to get her back to normal. We are getting there .Slow but sure.
Seven Stages of Alzheimer's
