Another Day Goes By — 4 Comments

  1. Glad to hear you have a bit of help and manage to get out on a “date”. Not being well you might have to make other plans for your Dad as it isn’t good for any of you battling along.

    Sometimes it has compensations being totally alone as I do my own thing and when I can’t that will just be that.

    Sorry to hear about the aches. I am glad that the Tylenol helps you, I don’t find it gives me any relief I have to have codeine but thank goodness that is very rarely.

    Hoping you have a good week.

  2. I did enjoy getting out on our date, Jackie. If I have to, I’ll end up hiring Francis for more days, but we won’t be moving Daddy out of his home if there’s any possible way to keep him there.

    I’m glad Tylenol does work for me. It didn’t used to, but I don’t use any pain killers any more, so even the mild ones work.

  3. What surprises me is how my mother can be so sweet and obliging one minute; then turn on me the next!

    Guess I will learn, thanks for the book recommendation, DB, hope you’re feeling better today.

  4. I know exactly what you mean, Marion. My Daddy is sugary sweet to all these Hospice people, and sometimes to me. More often than not, though, he acts like my DH and I don’t have enough sense to do anything right. And he does NOT have Alzheimer’s or dementia. He’s been that way for as long as I can remember, but it has gotten worse as he’s grown older and crankier.

    That’s the best book available on dementia, by far, not just by my opinion, but by a lot of people’s. By the time Mama was near the end, she was kicking and biting me, and my FIL was swinging anything at us he could get his hands on. It’s horrible what it does to the mind.
