Looks like about 5" of snow out there this morning. The last snowfall had just all melted from the 50 and 60 degree temps over the last few days, so now my driveway is under snow again. Oh, and we're back in the deep freeze, too. Now there will be more problems at the car washes. FML! What did I say about not complaining about the weather anymore? :/

Last day of freedom. We're going out to the Chinese Smorgasbord and then to Menards for the tiles we need to complete the kitchen job and a few extra tools. A rubber-padded pull-bar for sure and maybe a diamond file for the intricate cutting. I think the tiles are too thick for my glass grinder.

I managed to get my mother's room steam cleaned and reorganized. It doesn't smell like lavender and shit anymore.

It's cold again here too, Joy.

Well thats good. Hopefully she transitions back in smoothly and seamlessly and likes her newly jazzed up digs. Hopefully she doesnt bring anything home. Looks like the flu season is really heating up. First time ever the entire lower 48 map was all the same color at the same time...

Joybell - yeah were in the deep freeze too. Its gonna be in the 20's at night most of the week. The landscape is SOOOO fucked. I cant imagine the effect on the citrus and avocado crops either. Jeeez.

So LOL Wish I was the owner of an underpants store in hawaii... There is gonna be a huge run on clean skivvies. Seems they accidentally sent out a missile alert to the whole island. ROFL

What a fucking mess. Wonder how many people are going to divorce court, jail, or the unemployment office over this little fuckup. I mean never mind the "abandoning their cars in the middle of the road" and other stuff that happened. Picture an entire population of people who, for 40 minutes, thought they were gonna die and had nothing to lose and / or that anything they did would be covered by the destruction of a nuclear war. What a great time for the fed up kid at the local burger king to cut the cock and balls off his manager and give them a nice swim in the deep fryer, or to resolve that fence dispute with the pesty neighbor once and for all with a machete and a gas can, or to go see what your ex's insides look like when worn on the outside. Moral of the story - don't run amuck until you actually see the mushroom cloud. LOL I have a few people on whom I would like to apply "The Negen Method of Dispute Resolution" but Im smart enough to wait until AFTER the apocalypse. LOL

So from the "this sailed right over my head" department. Char was reading the story about the missile drill mayhem in Hawaii, when she began laughing, making bizarre hand gestures, and muttering gibberish between fits of laughter. I really thought she lost her mind, until she pointed out something I missed entirely.

Hawaii Emergency Management Agency Administrator Vern Miyagi said the error happened when someone hit the wrong button.

ROFL

"We made a mistake," said Mr. Miyagi.

ROFL LOL LMFAO Wax on wax off Danielsan, now we do "Shit pants and run like rabbit..." Ooooh Danielsan Miyaki Karate strong, but nuclear bomb stronger like bansai tree. How you say "we so fucked?" ROFL

How in the hell did they find Mr Miyagi to be their emergency director LOL You cant even make this shit up.

So you decided to bring her home, Randy. Hope it goes smoothly.

were in the deep freeze too

QUIERO MAS GLOBAL WARMING, POR FAVOR!!!

Had to look up Mr. Miyagi - lol

Honestly - I don't know what the hell Im gonna do with my landscaping if its dead, or how Ill replace it. For example - the nursery all my palm trees came from is about 40miles from here, and it been even colder there. If my shit is dead, their shit is deader. Ditto for the citrus trees. You cant import citrus between states. Like you cant replace a dead Texas orange tree with a California or Florida orange tree cause of quarantine regulations. So if the citrus nursery's here have taken the wack I fear my trees have, Im shit outa luck and back to store bought limes in my tequila.

So like MASSIVE kudos to Charlicita.... LOL She got chinese food last night. Unsure what to bring home she spent like $22... That resulted in the following

Shrimp Lo Mein (With Fried rice, sweet and sour shrimp and an egg roll)
Kung Pao shrimp (with fried rice sweet and sour shrimp and an egg roll)
Pepper Steak (with fried rice, sweet and sour shrimp and an egg roll)
Wonton soup
Hot and sour soup
Three extra egg rolls
Order of Crah Rangoon
Order of sugar biscuits

and the requisite tea, noodles, condiments, and fortune cookies to support such a larger order when an average chinese meal is like $4.89. LOL I am already GORGING for breakfast. As I will for lunch, and dinner, and tommorrow....LOL Thanks to her I need not put on pants, or venture out into this frozen wasteland for days. This will prob feed me till Tues or Wends. GO CHAR!!!!!!!!!!!

Yet you CAN replace white people with black and brown people from other countries. Where's the tolerance, compassion, and diversity? Sounds like botanical racism to me :/

Well, great. My mother was already sitting in hef easy chair when I checked on her this morning. Then she has a surprise visit from the only one of her friends that has stuck with her to this point. The fruend and I had a good visit, but my mother was totally out of it off in a world of her own. The friend hadn't seen her this bad so far and said she was glad she decided to come, because it may have been her last chance. My mother did have a small flash of recognition near the end of the visit.

Here's the thing, though. My mom wanted to visit the bathroom, and twice the two of us tried to get her to her feet so she could go. Even with the help of the mechanized chairlift, she couldn't get herself to her feet to use the walker. If we tried to give her an assist, she would yell at us to stop, either out of pain of fear. So there she is, stuck in her chair, with no way for me to toilet her or change her. She can sleep in the chair tonight, but she can't stay there for good. I have a call in to hospice about what to do next. I don't know if my back is good enough to pick her up and carry her to the bed.

Randy, she was able to get to her feet before respite, right? Maybe they just let her lay all week instead of having her walk around. Don't know how you are going to keep her at home if she has lost the ability to ambulate. Oh dee :(

Why are the Breaking Bad reruns on AMCHD in Spanish? And why do I only understand a stray word or two here and there after almost two years of Duolingo? Guess I'm failing Spanish :<(

They aren't you need to hit the SAP button on your TV remote you probably set the language to spanish. Been there, done that.

And why do I only understand a stray word or two here and there after almost two years of Duolingo

Duo lingo doesnt teach Mexican drunk slang and profanity. Watch something like the news or a spanish soap opera and you'll see you get more than ya think. Breaking bad would be "the super advanced class'

Your just gonna have to "Cowboy Up" and lift her right through her screams and protestations. As a medic when were taking people out on a stair chair they are invariably screaming like a raped ape and convinced that were are trying to kill them. You just think "Funny, I don't feel a thing" and carry on. Fact of the matter is ya can't leave them there, so even if it hurts, even if they dont like it, you gotta do what you gotta do. They may not like being forced to stand, but they will like a gluteal ulcer big enough to put your fist in even less.

Thanks, Kev, but there is no SAP button on my TV remote. Went to menu, language, and it is set to English. Wouldn't be so bad if they had English subtitles consistently, might learn something, but they come and go - lol.

Oh, it gets even better with my mom. Aftrr all that drama about not being able to get up from her chair, my grandsons arfive to spend the night because they have no school tomortow, and the older one asks where is GeeGee, and I gp to look and she's not in her chair where I left her and the bathroom light is on. So I tell her as long as she's in there, she needs to change her pull-up, and I hand it through the door. Half an hour passes, and I ask if she's okay in there. She was falling asleep on the toilet. I tell her she needs to change that underwear. She tells me to go away and stop confusing her so she can get to it. Another twenty minutes goes by and my son tells me she's calling for help. I go in there and I see she has been sitting on the closed lid all that time. Now she wants to go back to bed, but again she can't get up. I had to lift her into her transfer wheel chair and the lift her from that into her bed. She's really out of it mentally.

HAPPY JAMES EARL RAY DAY!!!

Today is the day the Gubbermint be having us celebrate da fictional life of Mike King, a negro plagiarist and phony preacher who embezzled church funds to engage in sadomasochistic sex with white underage prostitutes. If I didnt have so much Chinese food I would probably get some fried chicken and watermelon to celebrate.... NOT! LOL

Thanks, Kev, but there is no SAP button on my TV remote. Went to menu, language, and it is set to English.

Oh wow, well that fellates the wombat. Don't know then. When we have that happen its always our SAP button cause we can get English, Spanish or Vietnamese. Let me tell ya you aint lived till you have watched "The Walking Dead" in vietnamese. ROFL. God what a horrible language... LOL

Another twenty minutes goes by and my son tells me she's calling for help. I go in there and I see she has been sitting on the closed lid all that time

EWWWWWWWWWWWWWW Did she pinch a loaf on the closed lid?? Dumb question but why didn't your son deal with the situation you know being young and able bodied and stuff? I mean call me crazy, but if granny is stuck in the shitter yelling for help, I'm going in not passing the buck. Ditto for you having to lift her into the wheelchair and then ultimately bed. What can the woman possibly weigh? 100 pounds? 150 lbs? Thats like "a sack of cement" or "an elk hunter's day pack." So why did it get dropped on you to handle? Many hands make light work and two people on a 150 pounder is only 75 pounds a side, three people only 50 pounds each etc. I understand your the primary caregiver, and I get that, but don't hesitate to enlist others when needed. I do it on EMS runs all the time - "Yo deputy, you still have to lift and carry that dummy 100 yards at the police academy?" Yep. Good, it wlll come in handy, grab his feet... Oh look four burly firemen, what a happy coincidence, cause this backboard has four corners, gentlemen pick a corner....." (They dont call me Kevin-No-Carry for nothing. What about you, what are you gonna carry? The sacred iPad, and my even more sacred coffee...) Seriously though, next time you have an aid or nurse in the casa, you should ask them to show you some patient transfer techniques... Maybe get you a gait belt to use on her. Show you how to use transfer slings and transfer sheets etc... Like for example if you had a transfer sheet under he in the wheelchair, its a simple roll it up, one on each side, "on 3 - one two LIFT!" procedure. Remember, the aids and nurses are there to help, so don't be afraid to pick their brains and ask to be shown how to do these things without drama or injuries to either you or her and don't be afraid to draft bystanders...

I am officially beginning to change diapers. My mother has outgrown pullups and has to switch to tab type Depends. The nursebdidvshow me how to do it, and it will be a two man job because my mother resists being rolled from side to side. Buns is going to be thrilled about that. Xiomin, our nurse, did give me a tip on how to do it more easily -- give her Ativan. LOL

Actually, my mother was getting combative with me while I held her over on her side while Xho did the dirty work. But all she could do was swat at me ineffectually and try to use 'The Voice' on me. It no longer works after a lifetime of it.

I can finally begin to spend some of her money on home help if I have to, because Xho told me it's a matter of months rather than years now. Call me heartless, but that is good news to me. My mother us in a hell of pain and confusion now, and the sooner she is released, the better.

The only pleasure she has left in her life is her cats, the black tom we took in a little over a year ago, and her cat from before. They like to lie against her to keep her and themselves warm.

Randy, I hope you and your mother find peace soon. Your comment is not heartless. I felt the same way the last week of my husband's life. After you've done everything possible, all that's left is to wait for it to end. My mother was given Ativan during one of her hospital stays years ago, and it turned her into a fightcat. She was yelling out into the hallway from her bed trying to start fights with people - lol. There was no more Ativan after that.
