Time and Time Again

Posted by Sue on April 18, 2015 in Family, Life, Random Thoughts |

Well, how time has flown. My mom was evaluated by the social worker from her independent living apartment complex and it was decided she was going to need to move to the assisted living building. Yes, the one she said she’d never go to. She was furious when I told her she wasn’t going to […]

New Days, Old Attitude

Posted by Sue on March 3, 2015 in Family, Life |

Where do I start? I’m so frustrated. Big surprise. Mom still has a pissy attitude. “I’m never getting out of here.” “I’m leaving here in a box.” In between those comments she’s trying to get up by herself or she doesn’t get up the way that physical therapy has taught her, she’s trying to walk […]

New Digs

Posted by Sue on March 2, 2015 in Family, Life |

In order for Medicare to cover mom’s rehab, she had to be in the hospital for three nights. Because Tuesday when she was taken to the ER went so late, she wasn’t officially admitted until after midnight so she couldn’t be moved to a skilled nursing facility until Saturday. She was fighting it. She was […]

Hospital Time

Posted by Sue on March 2, 2015 in Family, Life |

Because my mom is elderly (83) and is technically 5’10” and weighs right about 100 lbs, it is no surprise when she fell she broke something. She has no padding. One of my goals when I moved her into a retirement community was that she be fed. She moved from her house which she was […]

Man (Woman) Plans, God Laughs

Posted by Sue on March 1, 2015 in Family, Life |

I had every good intention of getting right with my blogging and, well, you can see how well that went! I got wrapped up in the sugar detox and did very well through January and most of February… right up until the point where my life all went to hell in a hand basket. In […]

Another Day, Another Blog

Posted by Sue on January 17, 2015 in Family, Health, Life |

Old: So my dad passed away five years ago. This week (January 12). All this time and I’ve never shed a tear for him. I have his ashes in an urn on my bedroom dresser now. Next to another urn with the ashes of their dog. Mom wanted me to keep them when she moved […]

April… March?

Posted by Sue on April 6, 2011 in Health, Life, Wasting Time |

Uh, yeah… about that. I seem to have gotten distracted in my willingness to blog more. What can I say? Facebook ate my homework? Seems if I have a few extra minutes on the computer I’m lounging about on there, catching up on most of you (those of you who are on there). Then there […]

Surgery-Eve

Posted by Sue on January 18, 2011 in Deep Thoughts, Family, Health, Life, Self-exploration |

Tomorrow is my surgery. I’m looking forward to it as I hope it is going to take care of the pain I’ve been having for quite some time. I guess my first real hurdle was getting the letter from the insurance company and having them go through all this almost-legal-speak to tell me, finally, near […]

Where Has This Year Gone?

Posted by Sue on December 28, 2010 in Family, Health, Life, Self-exploration |

I am stunned when I look at my blog and realize I have barely written here at all … and not since September?!?!?! That’s unheard of! I used to write daily! I can’t say it is because I’m over on Facebook, updating every day, because I’m not. I don’t know if it is because I […]

Counting Down…

Posted by Sue on September 27, 2010 in Health, Life, Self-exploration |

Pain clinic appointment is on Wednesday afternoon. I’m counting down. First it was days, now it is hours. About ten years ago I had an experience with the Pain Clinic. I’d been having some pain again and was sent there. After taking an MRI the doctor told me they could see no obvious sources of […]
