Monsoons...not here yet

Terry and I took Twin 2 back up to Phoenix last Thursday. that would have been the 6th. OMG, it was over 120 up there, the pool in Twin 1 complex was closed cause some homeless dude took a bath in it, complete with soap and they had to drain it from...

Tidbits

I love it when I hear someone (not used to anything more exotic than TacoBell) proclaim they "LOVE" Mexican food. Or better yet, only had the "make them at home with McCormicks seasoning", or grab a street taco off a food truck... It tells me they...

But its a dry heat

wow, has it ever been hot, over 100 for days now..(but its a dry heat) aww hell....hot is hot, I dont care what they say. When you go outside and your skin prickles and you go blind cause its too dam bright and the sun doesnt have a dimmer switch, I...

Puddles

"a shit talking lil puddle slut" I tell ya, the names people call each other.  I couldnt help it, but when I saw this one, I had to sit down and laugh, literally LOL.  This one was written in an interview over some slight, AND put right into the...

Feeling calm for the first time in monthes

Have you ever noticed that in our posts, no one jumps in and makes any assinine political coments, blaming their failures in their lives on who ever is on the front page, and what the hell happened to this entire generation of young people. I dont...

WHEW

They got him up there by about 7pm, what the hell took so long, did they stop for a burger and fries? It turns out Dameon was on his way down the Mountain when terry flewpast him in the ambulance and he told me before I told him where T ws that when...

Here we go again

I thought we were doing pretty good there for a few days. It was 9 days without any crisis landing on us...then Bang, this morning T did a crash and Burn. I have seen it enough to see it coming now and managed to get him into the car(vs an ambulance)...

things that make go HMMMM!

Have you ever noticed that if you start dealing with something chronic or serious, others come out of the woodwork with similar diagnosis's or Doctors suggestions to go and have something checked. I bet in the last couple of weeks I have spoke with...

the hurrieder I go, the behinder I get

I am amazed right now. I got up before everyone else and am just sitting here thinking about the past few monthes. There were days when I thought for sure I was going to be alone. T was/is just that sick, but he is here, and is on his 3rd day home so...

I think I stink

My grandson just pointed out that I have been wearing the same clothes since bumpa went back in the hospital....that was a week ago. Why didnt I see or realize this. i dont feel any different,, like icky, but i bet I smell to every one else..Hell i...

keeping on

So much has happened, some the same, some different. T was in the Hospital for about a week and a bit, they got him up and out of the coma state, they got his weight down (all fluid reention, well over 100 lbs of fluid buildup. BECAUSE they use IV...

So....I get a call from one of the Hosp that he has been in, and they need a Coordination of Benifits, they are billing SS cause he is on Medicare, Medicare has in their system that he has some other ins that he has never had. So I call them, they say...

Has anything changed, not really.He woke up, but he isnt all there. I drove up to see him yesterday, its a 2.5 hr drive each way,  took a neighbor that is familiar with the drive so I could learn it,(tuscon is scary) I was using my navigator on the...

Lord

ok, here we go...T was released  late  on 4/20, went critical mid day on 4/22. Fucking A, why do they keep doing this. I watched him like a hawk, gave him his meds as prescribed, watched his intake, tucked him in...and today went to hell in a...

crack dem knuckles and get busy

I just cant sit here doing nothing. I get up in the morning, look at the house and just sit down and put my head down. My ambition seems to be waning, my incentive...same. I wat until it is time to go back to bed, thats what I look for. When I am...

SSDD

Due to the Holidays, I havent been able to get back up there, but I have been chatting with him on fb messager. he said they finally weighed him and he is now at 380. How much bigger is he going to get b4 he pops, or his heart just stops. he says he...

I finally got to see him

All day I thought it was tuesday, hell, I dont even know what day it is anymore unless I check the computer calendar. Hubby is now in a SNF (skilled nursing facility) he's not able to come home due to all of his health problems. He was transferred on...

sunday nondaay

In this ongoing saga on 16th street, it never stops does it. I have done some investigating of my own and have uncovered afew nasties, but have to sit on them. The people periphally speaking are starting to turn on each other and fingers are being...

Saturday do-da's

The mister is being very contrary. I think it is because they dont tell him what they are doing. They brought a nephrologist into the mix, he is running his own battery of tests and not explaining what he is doing. They are doing levels on him to see...

Still maintaining

Other half is still in the hospital.....it is a whole lot worse than we all thought or knew, throw in kidneys that are trying to have issues, along with the liver failure. I have been told he will probably go into a SNF when they release him. His care...

worthless in Douglas

We finally got him in and convinced to stay. He is so so so sick. he is more out of his mind than present. He is demanding, and angry. They tell me that is part of the illness andhaving his balances out of wack for so long. they dont know how much...

hangingon for dear life

LBL, was taken back to Phoenix where he said he would readmit..He is so confused, and I am not going to go  through this past week again, not for anything or anybody. I know he is sick, terribly sick, but I can only do so much, the family can only do...

LBL...continues

It was hard today. I could see that the levels were increasing, by watching his behaviors. AND, he cant even control his body functions now. He is peeing/soiling his pants before he can get to a bathroom. Its urge and immediate, as in right effing...

little boy lost

After this past week, I have been gathering and putting more puzzle pieces regarding other half. Dam, I wish I couldve been there for him when he was much younger. I have to wonder if he wouldve been different had circumstances been different. I had...
