ACK! Lindor Truffles are like the Pringles ad for me ... I can't stop with just one. I usually stick to Dove Dark Chocolate but they are no where near the quality of the "good stuff." 28 days ago
Well, you can teach an old dog new tricks but it sure seems to take this old dog lots longer to learn any new tricks than it used to take.
I am sure you are enjoying this fantastic Fall weather we've been having. It has certainly helped me keep up with yard work at home and at Dad's. Everyone in the family seems to be succumbing to this virus going around...except me. So far. 30 days ago
You're right that my stepmother's situation has changed. It really is amazing what has happened in the last 10 days and what her functional level is now. I finally went to see her yesterday in the nursing home. They discourage unassisted ambulation due to fall concerns, she can no longer feed herself and her swallow is delayed so they need to tweak her diet. She doesn't speak louder than a whisper. She did answer yes/no questions like are you hungry, do you want to go for a walk. All were no answers so which makes me wonder about comprehension. She had life in her eyes though and I haven't seen that for a few days.
I'm going to get Dad tomorrow morning and bring him over here. He has an appointment at the Clinic tomorrow and several appointments at the Clinic on Tuesday so he'll stay overnight. We have had someone with him every day since my stepmother went into a facility. Not 24/7 after the first two days but some time every day.
My diet has really been suffering. Not so much calorie wise since my weight isn't changing (apparently I have learned a few things on Spark People) but I eat in restaurants too much including fast food and those places had become very rare for me. So...not a lot of whole foods. Skipped meals sometimes too. My energy level seems to have been affected but I force myself to get those fitness minutes.
Well, John deleted Word and Excel last night. Accidentally but that just means another problem to be handled today. I told the dogs to just give me 10 minutes to rest this morning and immediately one of them asked to go out. Really? I need a vacation.
