So sorry for the loss of your sweet kitty. You were lucky to have her so many years. Terribly hard to lose our fur babies.

Re: Update on FIL

LWW
I am so sad to hear this news. It seems a blessing that once he began failing, he did not linger in discomfort for a long time. He did have all of you around him, for him and for each other. I hope your family and friends are a comfort to [more]

Re: Q for MetroChick?

What happens if someone taller would need to drive your car - such as a parking lot attendant - would they be able to drive your car just by moving the seat all the way back?

I try to remember to push the seat back all the way, and [more]

Re: Q for MetroChick?

I believe that was me. I went to a place that outfits vans for special driving needs and they installed pedal extenders on my old Honda civic, which I still have. It allows me to sit further away from the steering wheel and airbag. I also tilt my [more]

Re: We may be on to something

Finding a new place to put/hide the alarm was a constant battle with my mom as well. Eventually, they determined she didn't need it anymore per Medicaid, but mostly because it had become useless. By that time, she had gotten stronger and [more]

Re: We may be on to something

We had to come up with some devious ways to keep the alarm on her bed and chair, she learned how to turn it off. With her dementia, she had no memory of breaking her hip(s). Amazingly, she healed well from both of the repairs and uses her walker 98% [more]

Do they have an alarm on his bed and chair? Not that it always helps but it did sometimes, after my mom broke each of her her hips.

Re: When you have a hammer

Are you a rider or just nice and helping out friends? My trainer just opened an equestrian center last weekend, but repairs/upgrades to the property and dwelling and buildings and arena are on going. Enormous amount of work. Place was very neglected. [more]

But today is also yoga, running and P90X day. I have put in a request for an adjustable desk so I can sit or stand as needed to help with my back/hip pain. If I could switch careers at this late date, I would, but finances require me to keep [more]

Re: So it begins

OTOH, she can be thankful that she has options, money to spend down and possible rental income. My mom had $0 saved and is totally dependent on Medicaid and SS. Sometimes it helps to step back and see how we are fortunate when it seems the sky is [more]

Re: So it begins

More hugs for you, LWW. It is so hard when you are used to problem solving to have to just stand by and let nature take its course, because there are no solutions. Sounds like FIL is at that point. I hope your mom's ok. Getting old sucks and watching [more]

Re: it's been 4 months

Definitely make the album. Take your time. I put together one after my 2 old dogs died, a year apart. I love pulling out that album and looking through it. It's been 17 years, but I'm so glad I have it. I still need to put one together for my last [more]
