Thunder, lightning, and rain, cut our morning walk short so we headed home. A few brief bursts of sunshine later on but skies remained mainly cloudy. So, another day done gone.
SUNSHINE IN THE EAST AND STORM CLOUDS TO THE WEST EARLIER THIS MORNING STEPPING OUT OF THE JEEP AT OUR WALKING LOCATION I HEARD THUNDER AND SAW LIGHTNING TO THE WEST SO WE QUICKLY SHORTENED UP OUR MORNING ROUTINE
In an email today, Kelly said she was up until 2 a.m. Her mother has been accepted into hospice care at home and a medical bed was to be delivered yesterday. That bed didn't arrive until close to midnight Monday night and then it had to be assembled by the 2 fellas who delivered it. And then they were to instruct Kelly on the bed's operation. Kelly said no, she was done for the day. A nurse is coming Wednesday morning to help out and hopefully show Kelly how to operate the bed's functions. Oxygen is coming as well as a medical chair that can automatically stand a person up from a reclined position.
I HAD LEFT A COUPLE SHED DOORS OPEN SO WE SCURRIED FOR HOME WITH SUNSHINE BEHIND US AND STORM CLOUDS AHEAD....ABOUT 1 MINUTE AFTER TAKING THIS PHOTO I HAD THE WINDSHIELD WIPERS GOING
With Kelly's advanced liver condition she was told by her Doctor a couple years ago to avoid any stress if possible. Well, so much for that...................
KELLY SENT THIS PHOTO LATER TODAY AFTER THE OXYGEN EQUIPMENT ARRIVED
GROANER'S CORNER:(( A woman in Georgia bought a magnolia tree from a local nursery but, after only a few months, its leaves shriveled and it appeared to be on its last legs. She took some leaf samples back to the nursery and demanded an explanation. "Oh, I know exactly what's wrong with your magnolia tree, ma'am," said the manager. "Good," she replied. "What is it?" "Autumn!" he said.

It's hard to imagine how you must feel about what Kelly is going through with her mother. At least she knows how much you love her. Take good care of yourself and Pheebs. -MaryReplyDelete
Exactly what Mary said. A load on Kelly is a load on Al. And the worst part is that you aren't able to help except by being there for Kelly to talk with and assuring her you love her and miss her. And, come to think of it, all we can do to help you is exactly the same---be here for you to talk with, and assure YOU that we care!!! Thank goodness you have Pheebs!ReplyDelete
Thinking of Kelly at this most difficult time. Seeing your Mom out of this life is never easy. I did it two years ago and it was sad and heartbreaking. I felt good tho that I was there with Mum (cot in her room) for the last few days of her life. I wouldn't change a thing. It's a very good thing Kelly and her siblings are doing for Momma. I wish you all strength in the days ahead.ReplyDelete
Not an easy time for anyone when you are there to see your loved one fade away. Thoughts and prayers continue for all. Take good care Al, remember Miss Pheebs is counting on you.ReplyDelete
Sounds like the hospice I had for my dad, I never knew there were other companies until it was over. These fools would show up at 1am - 2am with medications. I'm wishing Kelly the best and hope she can manage to get some rest. And of course Al you take care of yourself and Pheebs.ReplyDelete
I've been worried about Kelly and you too Al. I read this morning that the boarders are going to open--finally!ReplyDelete
You and Kelly have been in my thoughts and prayers as she faces a really tough time. I got to be with my mom for the last part of her life and I wouldn't trade those memories for anything. I'm so glad the border is going to open.ReplyDelete
RunNRose said it all. I do hope there are some sibs that can come help Kelly out. A hard road.....ReplyDelete
