Tuesday night…. The little nurse dutifully came today but later than usual. The new project (which is now a lost cause) involved medical questions still asked as there might be something that can be salvaged from it. She said she was coming tomorrow again, so it will be the Wednesday lineup in play recently, namely, the lunch lady, homemaker aide, nurse and regular friend if all of them show up. As car problems surface often, none of that is ever sure. Friend also has job delays and can have other concerns. Looking ahead, the food truck comes this week, a thing to likewise keep in mind as the aide isn’t that reliable….
Wednesday night…. Regular friend did not come again. There was a suggestion by the nurse (who did come, as per current schedule) that the storm (tornado in some places) may have blown down the telephone lines or such as she could not reach him when she called Monday. If the office was without telephone service, it’s understandable that he wouldn’t be by. The homemaker aide stuff is (again) getting bad. It’s to a point where there’s about a chance in a thousand things will get squared away. There’s something wrong in the internet connection. Email’s not opening. It happens in one discussion site as well.
Thursday night…. Friend did stop by this evening; he brought a requested early Christmas gift for the lunch lady. Rarely is there a day when all she does is drop off the lunch. The light bulb business last week is an example. It’s nearly to the point where every week there’s a needed “helpful activity.” A box of candy isn’t much and barely an equivalent of her consideration. This afternoon there were two trips to the office to ask again about a transfer to another space. The office looked as if it were open, but the door was locked and no one was answering the telephone. ( That’s not nice.) Much of the day was spent on the computer.
Friday night…. Turns out it was a good and a bad day – one of those daily times best described as “needing a little adjustment.” Today’s trip to the office netted a live person to be checking for the matter of moving to another apartment unit in the building. That, in turn, may have been what scrounged out that so-called activities coordinator who made such a horrible mess months ago. A door note there this evening said she needs to be properly seen. The nurse came; the hind paws didn’t have a bit of oozy mess today. The food truck came, too; but, there was need to settle for potato soup as he was out of chicken soup.
Saturday night nearly at the witching hour…. Two mini cheeseburgers (they are on buns about the size of biscuits) sit at hand cooling off having just been heated in the microwave (they were frozen), and that’s the evening meal, complete with vitamin pill that just fell on the floor. It was a most peaceful day with a half-way decent lunch (not common on Saturday or Sunday as there’s no meal delivery). And, that is all that happened; much of the day was spent on computer which is quite hard on the behind. That’s been sore for a while for unknown reason, like too much sitting. There’s just time to scribble down these few notes.
Sunday night…. Thanksgiving is about here. It’s time to start looking through a few greeting cards on the possibility that some might be sent (maybe not – a few words of good wishes should always be enough). In a big surprise, friend did not come by this noontime. Although it seems there was mention about a need to be elsewhere, it’s very unusual for a no show at all on Sunday. Several people get a visit on Sundays. The evening has been spent with a tummy ache. There was an interesting trip downstairs just to get out of the apartment — the card-playing in the community room wasn’t there. The devotee sat alone.
Monday night…. Goodness gracious! It looks like there are seven of these little notes for a change. The nurse came to look over things. She took the bandages off the hind paws for trial. The front paws are about the same, but the behind is very sore. That creates some problems in the bathroom. Two visits were made to the office. The first found it inaccessible. The second was a most wonderful, uplifting visit. The reason for going was to see about getting out of the notice of the activities coordinator. The visit got to be a nice sales pitch for the moving to another unit in the building.
Sometimes things turn out good.
