You guys are simply the best.

Thank you. I just can't express how much all your wise words have helped me.

You, your mom, and your family have been in my thoughts, Jo. I've been there, and it's not easy.

Big Hug Jo.

Grandpa rallied while laveric and I were at a wedding. We raced home and he was awake long enough to tell me to take care of laveric and for us to tell him we loved him. He feel asleep after that and then died 3 days later. It was really hard. We had hospice in the home because the house is set up with elevators and everything. Watching him go down hill was awful.

Jo, if she's alert, here's joke to tell you Mom:

Bertha has just returned home from her first trip to the big city, and is having coffe with her friend, Mabel.

Bertha: The city was so interesting!

Mabel: You don't say!

Bertha: In the city, there's men who have sex with other men. They're called homosexuals.

Mabel: You don't say!

Bertha: And they got women who have sex with other women! They're called lesbians.

Mabel: You don't say!

Bertha: And they have women who have sex with men for money! They're called prostitutes.

Mabel: You don't say!

Bertha: And they have men who have sex with women for money!

Mabel: You don't say! What aretheycalled?

Bertha: I don't know about everyone else, but I called him 'sweetheart'!



Bet she'll get a kick out of it!

Teehee Joe!

I've printed it and will take it there tomorrow. Even if she is not awake, there will be others there that will love it and perhaps if she wakes up and I'm not there, one of her caregivers will read it to her! It's definitely her kind of joke. Smile

Aubie - Thanks. I write about all of this yes, just so I can get it all right in my mind. But too, I do hope that some of what I see and tell about somehow helps another.

No matter what, I just love all of you. I tell all my co-workers and friends that this is the best of the best boardellos and it is. I don't know where I'd be if our beloved CM hadn't gone and written all those awesome books. Smile

Today, I'm just a crank. I wanted to kill everyone. I know it's just all of it but to add to the stress I had to rush our kitty Bubba to the vet yesterday morning. We already lost a cat to the dreaded urinary tract blockage thing, so I knew the symptoms. The vet called and all was well yesterday and I was to pick Bubba up this morning.

Wouldn't you know it, Bubba managed to get out of the vet's Elizabethan collar thing and rip out his catheter overnight. Crying or Very sad So back to square one and hopefully tomorrow he can come home. Fingers crossed there.

So now I will go prepare our guest bathroom for a leaky and recuperating cat Shocked. When he comes home, he will have the catheter that leaks for about 4 days so he can't have the run of the palace for a while. Wink Thank god for a vinyl floor. LOL I just want my Bubba back, stinky and all.
