17 September 2019

Here it is  1 p.m. in the afternoon and I had completely forgotten to write a new entry!

Rain was predicted yesterday morning.  Ned and Marta spent about half an hour consolidating the furniture and covering everything with tarps.  In the morning, there was no long rain predicted but then we had about  5 minutes of rain, so all the work they had gone through was worthwhile.

My mother had to return to Kaiser to have her wound checked.  Sandy got her all dressed nicely, but she was not happy.  She glowered all the way to Kaiser and didn't speak when I tried to talk with her.  I'm not sure, but based on her response to my arrival, I don't think she knew who I was.

These Kaiser trips have always been uncomfortable, but it used to be that I would treat her to lunch or a snack afterwards, but it's no longer a treat for her and more of a chore for me, so the best thing I can do for her after her appointment is to take her back home.

Walt came with me this time and it was much, much easier with two of us dealing with her than doing it myself.

I had to wait about 20 minutes for the check-in desk to open up, and it was great to leave Walt with her because my friend Marsha was there to check in too and we got to visit for 20 minutes or so without my worrying about leaving my mother alone.

All they had to do was lift up her shirt, wash the wound and re-dress it again, but you would have thought they were doing minor surgery.  She did NOT want her shirt lifted up.  "Don't DO that...I HATE it!" and it took two of them to dress the wound, because someone had to keep her shirt up while the other one got the medication ready.  They also had to keep re-zipping the front of her shirt because she wanted to unzip it, but she wasn't wearing anything under it.

But eventually it got done.  That's the good part.

The bad part is that she has to go back again on Thursday.

We had our last Home Chef meal.  I decided that getting food for 4 was too much food and food for 2 wasn't enough.  Also I was unhappy that they sent me the wrong food for one recipe  they sent and I could not find the correct recipe on their web site, so I was ready to call a halt to it.

Now we have to figure out how food is going to go from now on.

After dinner, Walt and I watched episode 1 of Ken Burns' "Country Music," which was so good that it even kept Walt awake.


clouds were so beautiful today!

I'd love it if you'd leave a comment!
