Both Twins Home......

October 9th, 2007 at 10:54 pm

Both the twins, my mom and my aunt are home tonight. Moms got congestive heart failure, and the other has a fractured tail bone and a concussion from her fall this week.

And, as if that weren't enough, we had a houseful of company here to visit with both of them........company for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Good for me cooking for a bunch is not a big deal.

Received the inspection report and bid to fix a few issues on the beach house. Will meet tomorrow & do what needs to be done to send this to the seller. Still looking at the first of Nov. to close. Unbelievable!

Did have to make a grocery store run, in between follow up Dr. appointments for the twins. Needed some different types of food here, as I'm just not used to the little dabs of things mom thinks will suffice. She has LOTS of food, just not much that goes together to make a regular meal, let alone 3 a day! I've got the plan figured out through tomorrows dinner; need to remember to dig through the freezer tomorrow before leaving for another round of Dr appointments. (I am getting a ton of knitting done while I'm waiting for all these appointments!)

I think this is the week I'll have to give notice re; my week end young man. I can see my life getting more than complicated and can't figure out how to fit him in 2X's a month. It's been fun to have the extra spending money, but after this week, it doesn't seem worth it.

I've got a long list of things to do........which I'm giving to my nephew tomorrow. Farming out some of this responsibility as quickly as I can. He will be here with the beach house paperwork, and I'm adding to his TO DO list considerably. He offered!

    Is there a senior center in your town that offers transportation to doctor's appointments? Might they take your mom to her appointments once in awhile? I know you might feel guilty not taking your mom yourself, but it sure seems you could use a break from time to time!

    I am sorry to hear of the excitement your family has had these past few weeks. My mother has the same diagonosis in June but the medication they gave her has just been amazing. We are not sure what the future holds for anyone but i hope your mom and her twin are strong and with you to support them and help them i am sure they will come through all ok.

    Take care of yourself, too. Sounds like you'd just been given caregiving as a second job - its good that you are delegating to the rest of your family.
