The big deal of the day was the arrival of nursing services. It was not the most efficient of activities and took an hour and a half. Little bandaging was applied. She’s supposed to come back Friday. If it becomes equally exhaustive, the fire department emergency crew is likely to be needed. She did the wrists and all of the rest of the hands was left to the patient. The patient, of necessity as all that was on the ten fingers had been pulled off, began; but, maybe halfway through the light bulb burned out and had to be replaced. Getting a light bulb out isn’t easy. There’s no recollection of the rest of the day.

The first person on the scene was the mail carrier with the new the computer. It has been long awaited. Then came the lunch lady. Then came homemaker aide. Then came regular friend too late to meet the aide. The day’s awakening came at about 2:00 a.m. and there was no getting back to sleep. It’s good that most of the day went great. The lunch lady got the computer box open. The aide put it together. The owner got a look at it and so did the regular friend. Further study is for another day, maybe tomorrow. That’s “study” because it’s not the same as the machine that has been in use.

The need of the day be to get ready for the coming day. The wish of the day be to look at the new equipment, but wishes need to take a back seat to needs. Even though the new scooter batteries eliminated one long drawn out time of inaction during this week, precious little got done. Things like necessary papers were unearthed (it isn’t good to start spending money without knowing how much is at hand). And, it’s always necessary to catch up on sleep. The main thing done was catching up on some important correspondence as well as the missing night’s sleep. The food truck order did not get done.

Well, people did come…. First the lunch lady (when expected), then the nurse (unexpectedly early), then the food truck (when expected but not as expected) and finally friend (as expected). It was decided to save the lunch for tomorrow (they don’t come on Saturday and time be too rushed for more than a snack). That was good as the nurse would have arrived in the midst of it. There’s a little to be desired in the service. The food truck driver was not on vacation yet, so a “simple” order has to be for next time as well. The bank made a slight error on the rent money orders. Maybe they will go through.

Being online amounts to a lot of things that were done differently once that was really not a long time ago. Whether that’s good or bad is beside the point, a lot is easier with a computer. The dream for the day was getting the new computer in some state of use. Stuff was moved – not easy while sitting on a scooter. In the end, it didn’t happen. Presumably the signal was commandeered by the old one. Warming supper took two minutes. Eating it took maybe seven or eight. …But cleaning out the microwave because supper splattered all over the inside took a heap of time. The day was disappointing.

The scooter got re-charged batteries without the owner being immobile for four or five hours. It will be wonderful if it continues to be the way things are. While it’s not impossible to move about a little with the non-electric gizmo, it would be more a matter of using that as a desperate measure to get help. On a guess there was a trip down the hall to the vicinity of the elevators to see if a connection to the internet could be scrounged up that way. It worked long enough to log in at least for the first time. Whether the connection stays is yet to be seen. Even the sore behind seems better. It’s a good day.

Precious little internet connection came today. Maybe this will get published on a “someday.” Tomorrow there is supposed to be nursing services of some sort. Friend is supposed to stop by to see about the batteries as the re-charging time seemed to be too brief. Meanwhile the stuff that didn’t get done yesterday (as is usual now, it seems) regarding taking care of the past week’s financial elements sits. (This is not good.) Today was spent in wonderful things like trying to get a “live person” at the doctor’s office and trying to get an internet connection with the old computer where everything is … and changing bandages.
Summer is here.
