Three things of importance happened today. Homemaker aide came, of course, and today she was sent on a deliberate buying errand with instructions about getting a receipt and exact change. Before she kindly rounded off transactions for the old lady, etc. She did as wanted. About half of the paper bandages got replaced with gauze. Exhaustion prevented doing the wrist areas. The back up friend had such an office problem that he couldn’t stop by. It’s clear for a couple of reasons that he can’t do as much as was hoped, and what to do about it is going to be a study item for some time ahead. The aide buying will help.

Starting Thursday morning (the 16th) the medical state turned overwhelmingly bad. Nearly first thing there was a case of intolerable itching especially on the right hand soon followed by a serious inability to think at all. The stupor-like condition lasted through Friday and included bathroom emergencies. Decent bandages helped a lot. This morning, however, the attack was apparently over as the thinking was as clear as normal and getting around was easier. Seems like there were mushrooms in the green beans in the lunch on Wednesday. A few strips shouldn’t have made that much difference….

Although the blog entry didn’t get finished before the witching hour, this has to be considered a fairly good day. Most notably the plants got watered in a timely and efficient manner – there was no great effort needed or midnight realization of that needed to be done, too. There are a couple things that will need to be done, but they can’t be done at the moment. One alarm clock died due to dead batteries. It helps a lot when waiting for a friend to bring needed stuff can be avoided on Sunday afternoon. The stop at noontime to see if there is still life is enough. It also helps a lot if the scooter doesn’t desperately need a re-charge.

It’s miserable hot in Covington. An email note received Thursday needs to be answered. It was a toss-up whether to do that or this first. This won out as that is already past due while this is approaching the imaginary deadline. The day has been close to ordinary – not much desperate rushing because something had to be done, no people but the lady with lunch and the couple of things properly finished off yesterday made for a state near peaceful existence. It is time to line up things to get money orders for bills, and the scooter will need a re-charge in a day or two, and a the rent receipt (although that was paid) still has not arrived.
The horrible things happened elsewhere in the world.
