By mid-afternoon yesterday I was so angry I was literally breathing hard. At 6:15 AM I rang for the CNA and asked to be changed. She told me she couldn't because she had to leave. I reminded her that shift didn't end until 7:00 but she said... Read more

Tomorrow I'm going to try to get into a wheelchair. We're having my quarterly "care conference," and I know we won't be able to talk with roomie in here. She's decided that the social worker "belongs" to her. If she sees her talking to anyone el... Read more

Prayers, good thoughts or whatever you believe in are requested for my niece Samantha. She's having pregnancy complications. We want her and little one to come through strong. Last month I lost twenty pounds. The staff is fretting about it,... Read more

I should have guessed that any day that starts with an abdominal ultrasound before breakfast isn't going to be a good day. (I have a large patch of cellulitis on my right side). I'm not foolish enough to expect much privacy here, but there'... Read more

I'm wilted after the week I had. At least the temperature has dropped to a civilized level! Just waiting for roomie (who wears a zipped up pile lined parka 24/7 regardless of the temperature) to howl that she's freezing and I have to close the w... Read more

We're having ninety-degree heat, so by three in the afternoon I'm as wilted as overcooked spinach. It's supposed to start cooling in the next day or two. I certainly hope so. I hope this isn't going to sound heartless. Living in close quart... Read more

Roomie's best friend told me that in addition to dementia, roomie has long term psychiatric issues (I had suspected as much). Meantime, they moved a man into the room across the hall who used to attend the same psychiatric day program as roomie.... Read more

My roommate is crying again. This time it's because her best friend has left for a week out of town. She cries if she calls this friend and the friend isn't home. Or if the CNA doesn't bring her iced tea fast enough. I feel like I should try to ... Read more

This place is a mess. On top of all the usual craziness, now the kitchen is a disaster area. They keep running out of basics like milk, butter and salad makings, and there's a mistake on just about every plate. Oy... Yesterday one of the oc... Read more
