Wednesday morning conversation

I called Mother this morning for our usual Wednesday chat. She sounds amazingly cheerful; I always suspect this is for my benefit, but it does sound like she has the best possible attitude. Melody from Senior Helpers was back today—Mother really likes her and wants to give her a chance to provide continuity. I hope Melody's health remains steady so she can come every time and I urged Mother to take your advice, Dave, and add another day while it's available.
She said Daddy was breathless again this morning, but better after his walk. Still, she's glad they have another appointment with Wiggans this afternoon.
She did say she got Dad's meds mixed up again, the warfarin, so there is some cause for concern there.
We talked again about the Forum—it would be assisted living, so very expensive. For now, we just need to make sure that Mother and Daddy have enough help at home, I guess.
She got a big kick out of the certificate she received for completing her radiation. Pretty funny.
Thanks to Adrian for helping out. And, always, you and Susan and Helen. Please, please let me know if there's a single thing I can do from here. Love.

  1. The warfarin mix-up is not a huge issue. He takes a smaller dose on Tuesdays and Saturdays 2 mg vs 4 mg which means the pill has to be cut in half. She gave him a whole instead of a half. Or maybe it's the other way round. It's a goofy thing that was just changed last week.

    She's really doing pretty good with the meds. It's complicated and changing every few days.
