Monday's child has far to go?


Sorry it's been a while since I've posted.

Poor Mom had 2 syncopal episodes on the same day (I think it was Saturday). It was kinda scary but we all got through including Mom. Ya never know what life has to offer here.

My friend Keith was here last week to help me to some stuff around here and to help Dad prime and paint.

I've been fighting a sinus infection for about 4-5 days now. I think I'm winning!

Aimee & Eric & Turtle are fine.. I plan to fly to be with Aimee on May 13th! I can't wait!! We'll visit (Eric has to travel for business). we'll watch all the Harry Potter movies with all the extras, we'll do a little shopping (Aimee's birthday is in June), we'll eat out a little and we'll laugh and talk to all hours!! I can't wait!!!

Jazz Fest starts this Friday. Kendal called and we will be going 2 days this weekend (if weather permits). It's been lovely weather here with very little rain but Jazz Fest usually brings the rain back! I love Jazz Fest. It's a great place to go and listen to all kinds of wonderful music! (It's not just jazz, it's multi-cultural). It's a great time!!

I've been a little down in the dumps lately and not leaving home much. I hope Jazz Fest and the trip to Aimee's changes all that. My friend Keith is coming to stay with my animals so Linda and the family don't have to deal with them the whole time I am gone.

My friend Brad called me the other day. It was good to hear from him. It's been a while.

Raehella called and they have been sick but are feeling better now.

Jamey and her family are all well. Linda and Michael seem to be doing a little better with this difficult situation (being caregivers).

White dog and orange cat are both well as are L & M's 4 cats and Mom's cat Jonsey.

Hope all of you are well!

Peace and Hope,

Today is Saturday


Today is Saturday. I seem to be in a blue funk. I'm not sure why but I am. I don't want to go out or get dressed or anything. I just want to sleep. I do go through cycles of this and I'm not sure why.

Mom seems to be rather stable. She still can't do anything for herself but is not passing out the way she was. Dad is hanging in there. A little more confused and forgetful but still handling most things.

Linda and Michael seem rather tired and anxious. I'm not sure what that is about.

White dog and orange cat are doing fine. They still haven't accepted Linda's 4 cats. Linda's cats although sweet to people are not too nice to other animals. They chase and gang up on my cat and dog.

I'm still doing my Peer Volunteer work. I just signed up for another cycle. The AD Assn down here is in quite a mess. So far, since Elena resigned, there is only a part time person who answers the phone but is new and knows nothing. No services so far. No more EOAD support groups. What a mess! I've been trying to get in touch with Bob S. who is the head of the Louisiana AD Chapter. So far, no luck!

Seems like no one down here really cares. That makes me very sad!

I'm tying to figure out how to start another EOAD support group.

Peace and Hope,

Easter Sunday

Hi to All,

Happy Easter! Today has been a pretty good day so far. Mom seems stable today (at least for now). Everyone seems OK.

Spoke with Aimee to say Happy Easter and to see what she & Eric were up to today. They are doing fine. Turtle too.

Michael made us pancakes for breakfast. Delicious!!!!!!!!!!

Alexis came over and I gave her Easter candy and minutes on her cell phone. She brought me some pretty colored daisies! I enjoyed our visit soooooooo much! I miss her a lot!

Earlier this week, Dad had bought all of us some Easter flowers which were lovely.

Went on the AD Message Boards to do some Peer Volunteer work.

Now, waiting for Jamey to come and stay for a couple of days! Aunt Julie & JoMary are bringing us some take out Greek food for dinner.

Oh, Linda's cat Lizzie was missing but we found her last night and she's home safe and sound. Thank goodness.

I miss the old days when our family would get together with all my cousins and celebrate.

Oh well, life goes on!

Peace and Hope,
