Well, the little nurse’s aide had an emergency Tuesday, and she did not make it in Friday, either. The nurse manager did come Thursday. The situation was survived, but not really that well. Getting along without Older Friend is not particularly easy as, among other things, he not only got some groceries he handled some money matters. Young Friend is expected tomorrow, so at least there’s a chance to get some things done then. Older Friend also helped some with the plants, and it’s to cry about as a special one in precarious state given to the care of someone else died.
The temperature has been around zero (Fahrenheit). Many people simply aren’t prepared for such weather, so it’s not surprising that it’s practically impossible to find offices functioning more or less as they should, never mind someone willing to do an errand. However, it is possible some legal-type help has been found, but that won’t be clear for a few days anyway. Basic supplies were running low by mid-week and assorted (useless) chasing around looking for an available soul for errands took up much time. Doing without coffee is difficult, never mind also doing without cigarettes.
It’s been 2018 for eight days, but the world’s still not operational. With the phone in the state it’s in, it’s necessary to use the lobby phone. Rarely is that used without trouble, like the place being painted on Friday. The housekeeping aide came Wednesday, got the mail for the week and the prescription for the month. At least the prescription stuff is done. Today was food truck day and a day scheduled for the nurse’s aide. There’s a computer problem, of course, and a bloody behind, but the doctor’s due. Presently things are adequate, but lack of toilet paper is a looming problem.
Looking under rocks is a last resort. 🙂
