*My Mom has gone rogue. Since my Dad sprained his ankle, she's decided or been forced into being a lot more active than she was previously. She's having to care for him. He can't put weight on the ankle. He's using her walker and she's free styling more than using the cane.
She told me this morning that she drove herself to therapy (and forgot to bring her cane) yesterday. I offered to take her, she told me Dad was taking her and just waiting in the car.
Man, I hope she doesn't fall.
*Joseph asked me last night if I thought grandma and grandpa would ever get back to where they were before, health wise. I told him I thought grandma would, but unfortunately I didn't think grandpa would. That was a very hard conversation to have.
*I finally slept last night. After 4 nights of not sleeping much at all, it was sorely needed. I feel human again. Yesterday was so rough. I felt so horrible. Stomach off, headache, well, like you feel when you pull an all nighter, like crap.
*I walked Ellie yesterday morning. The farm down the street got a new dog.
It came into the road to see us.
It has to be a puppy. All paws and energy. It followed us and jumped all over me for almost a quarter mile while Ellie was in avoidance stance the whole way. I was so worried Ellie would go after it, especially when it started jumpng on me. She's been pretty protective of me in the past, but she was very good. Finally a kid came up in a car to come get it. There goes yet another walking route.
*There is a gnat in my house. I can't seem to kill it and it keeps coming around my face.
