The valerian seems to be working!
Monday, November 20, 2017      3 comments

I had lights off by 9:30...my book was too good to stop so I read a little longer! I awoke at 3am, lay there quietly until 4:30...mostly thinking of our neighbors who cut us off completely when we didn’t vote their way...and suddenly it was 7:3... Read more

Nothing can be done to beloved’s eye...”a cornea transplantation risks detachment” so somehow he has to live with a central scar in the middle of his cornea. We see the retina surgeon tomorrow and pray for decent news. No detachment is always ... Read more

I know one day I’ll be glad I had this time...one day I will have regrets no matther what I do, but caregiving is exhausting, even though she’s six miles away. She’s negative and sometimes not nice. Today is the Thanksgiving Celebration party ... Read more

Some of the old people are mean! There is an old woman at the Assisted Living who shoves people to get ahead in line, then she yells at them for shoving her! It’s funny, but not funny...someday she’ll knock someone over...early dementia, I sup... Read more
