“Dear Monday, I want to break up. I’m seeing Tuesday and dreaming about Friday. It’s not me; it’s you.”
After returning home from my early morning visit, I spent an hour updating our “roadmaps.” Every year I update a series of PowerPoint charts that define our financial position, identify key personnel and organizations, identify essential legal documents, identify financial accounts, update username/passwords to critical on-line activities (SS, Medicare, banks, medical information, etc.), and update the essential medical information. Certain people in the family know where the roadmaps are should something happen to us, and at our age, that could be anytime!
Our youngest is in Hawaii again, and she keeps sending pictures of paradise; all I can send her are pictures of the inside or outside of a hospital! It does not seem fair!
Trip number two to the hospital was at 9:30 AM, where I attempted to feed her breakfast but was not interested. Michele came by to visit, so I departed and did battle with God’s Of MRI. Long story!
I returned about 3:30 PM, bringing her nibs two of her favorite ice cream flavors, and I’ll be darned if she didn’t eat both of them!
One more pass at home when I took a short nap before returning to the scene of the crime with veggie enchiladas with rice and beans, all in separate containers so she could eat them herself.
After seeing what the hospital offered her as a vegetarian, I was happily making the extra effort!
Back home at 9:38 PM and beat! I watched part of another goofy science fiction movie and crashed! Perhaps tomorrow she will return home!
Before crashing, I did get calls from Colleen, Joe, Robin, and Michele plus as a bonus, Lisa is driving up from San Diego to visit Sue and stay with me for a while. My grandsons and their wives both called, plus we got notes/emails from many friends! You can’t beat that for family bonds!
