Just yadda @ work-life

Well...Bogger has decided the new and inproved better "Beta" version is no longer that good. I have finally ironed out all the wrinkles--of corse when I want to post a cartoon,,,I end up with a trillion of them and need to cut them out of the Edit Html. I have to laugh,,,Part of me is turning into a GURU. Not that I know a lot,,but I am learning as I go along.We saw snow today,,,finally,,,it came down in a quick flurry,,not amounting to much,,but it was a touch of the Majick,,,of the season. These past 2 days have been fun and busy for me. Big changes at the "Home",,,some of my favorites have moved on,,,some to different floors,,and when I visited "Fred" on his new floor,,his Morals are down,,,they started dwindling down when he found out he was to have a few toes removed. And the staff he despises,,,I feel sadden for him,,a proud Marine and in his later years he is disregarded. Yesterday a patient asked if they could talk to me,,,she is a very nice lady about 50 suffering from a accident that left her a quad. She ran out of money and asked if I could pick her up some $,, VI, Western Union,,,she knew she could trust me,,,Mission done,,her daughter wired her some spending money,,,and I delivered. On the morrow I set her hair for her. I asked her since she is in Rehab,,if they are teaching her to use a transfer board ,,,not yet ,they will also teach her to turn in bed...soon she hears,,,she has been there 5 months. On the morrow I will tell her about Sunny View,,It is a rehab up near her home,,in Troy. My Mom was there and they really helped her a lot in 2 weeks. I also took care of a young gentleman that was a quad and he did great. She needs more skilled therapy,,,any one can see that. My personal Patient is doing OK,,I have accepted the fact that that she will not be coming home,,,I have not been told this but I know. She does not like it,,But there is nothing that shall change it,,The visits from the family are slowly dwindling,,,,She still lights up when I come. And daily I go,,for my 2 hours. My new home care job is improving. First day I was there she brightened up--ate very little...and refused bath. Now we are up to 3rd visit,,she is happy,,bath done and able to eat a whole meal. I am sure her son See's the improvement. He called when I first started and was desperate,,,his Mom was fading fast...I really see a big improvement. Sometimes I think I am just happy when I help some-one...I should have been a Mother. Every one always said how good I would be...I think my calling is taking care of the sick,,old,,and helpless like children are when they are small. Onto other notes,,,I took my friend Jenny to the airport today,,,She is heading home to Dallas to be with her family. She wore her mink coat today and told me,,,"Even if it's 80 in Texas,,.Christmas you wear your mink" in her Texas accent. She is looking forward to all the parties and Gala's of the up coming season. Looking forward to her return,,and my Godson's. But it's nice to know I can go up to her place when I want to be alone and look out on the city. She told me,,help my self to anything in the re fridge,,,Have a beer and enjoy. I took home the pesto for the morrow's supper.. And she gave me yellow roses. My home always looks like a florist shop in the winter,,,I have about 7 vases of fresh flowers all around,,,right now 3 in the kitchen,,1 in the hall,,2 in living room and 2 in spare room,,OK,,that's 8. They usually last 2 weeks before I have to replace them, The Roses thou,,I keep,,,till { J } makes me toss them with promises of anew. Well I yadda a bit-- no rant or rages,,all is going pretty good for me. I have a doctors appointment in am,,I cancelled 2 times now,,one time too busy and the 2nd to sick to go- I think I was hung over and lacking sleep,,,,now I planned to be asleep 2 hours ago so it's off to there...Happy Trails---========================================
