Today was a long hard day. A social worker and a chaplain came to visit my mother, stayed half an hour each, while I was waiting for a nurse. She finally came in the late afternoon.
Did you ever had to watch the medications your doctor prescribed? Did you have to remind him that some may have a cumulative effect and one should be stopped when the other is ordered?
Mom's blood pressure went up from 80/40 yesterday to 92/70. A big progress. She dozed a lot but was quite assertive to tell me she didn't like the pureed food I gave her. Thanks to Everybody LovesRaymond and Seinfeld, she finally ate while I explained and commented the shows.
I managed to write 800 words on my laptop. I'll probably have to rewrite half of it tomorrow but it kept my mind busy. Writing is better than an anti-anxiety drug.
I will report tomorrow.
And on June first, we will start a contest to celebrate the release of my book BABIES IN THE BARGAIN on July 03, 2009 at The Wild Rose Press. I will tell you more tomorrow.
So stay tune,
