    I am so happy that things are looking up!

    This

    her blood pressure was through the roof, she had an undetected UTI, was taking enough pills to put a small pharmacy in the black for the year (many of which were counter indicating each other)
    is so familiar. I started doing home care for an elderly woman and she was in the same state with meds. Her daughter would call her doctor brother in Fla, and get him to write a scrip for what she thought she needed. I was horrified when I sat her meds out on the table and started researching. I finally called her gp and made an appointment for Sat. morning, called the daughter, who would be coming in, and told her. I put the drugs in a bag and set them on the table. Within a week, my old lady was very much better. Unlike your situation, we developed a wonderful relationship over the 5 years I cared for her. Lots of bumps due to the ignorance and jealousy of the children, but Mrs.E was always on my side, calling me her "lifeline". I stayed by her as much as I could in her final hospitalization, and was comforted to know that her beloved niece was with her when she passed.

    The animals! I too have spent many a morning getting up only because of them. And I think it's puppy time, and rightfully so. Nothing like a pup learning that it can jump up and turn around in the air to lift a spirit. You go girl!

    Only thing more infuriating than an ignorant man is one who tries to make others ignorant for his own gain. Crashing Vor

    •  ah, puppy is SLOWLY removing every single cat toy (0+ / 0-)

      from their basket and transporting them to his room - all toyz belong to HIM, in his mind!  

      now, to save the kitty toyz, we're off to the barn - the reasons for my smiles!  that, and this community!

      have a wonderful multifooted day!
