Another good day

When one is a caregiver for the elderly (or is the elderly!) having a good day is about everything good in the world. Yesterday was one of those days when Mom was again more like my Mom instead of my patient.

We actually got dressed fairly early (for her) and headed out the door around 10:30 am. Off to the Chinese Market where she loves browsing all of the unfamiliar vegetables. Sushi for me and we were off to Home Depot until it dawned on me that her portable oxygen didn't seem to be working. So, since we'd been out for just 40 minutes, we came home so I could check it out. Which I did. Note to self: turn on the portable oxygen...dumb, dumb, dumb. At least there was no harm done...

Anyway, we sat outside for a bit and worked on our tans - she's browning up quite nicely. Sophia came over and I threw hot dogs on the grill while Sophia set about making some delicious vegetables. So, all was well. An uneventful evening which is also fairly delightful these days.

Wrote another article on Seekyt. It's about the Furminator - the ultimate dog de-shedding tool.



  1. I lurk often on this site; dealing with this issue now and so appreciate the obvious love you have for your Mom. XXXOO to you and Gertie!

  2. Hi, Heidi! Glad to 'see' you. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. I have 4 years of experience caring for my mom so may be able to help you adjust. Thanks for your hugs and kisses. Read your comment to Gert - she loves her internet friends!
