We are still waiting on baby Cliff.
Or "Little Big Head" as I have taken to calling him.
Tomorrow Abbie returns to the doctor.
I reckon we will get a plan of eviction.
She feels good and all is well.
In other news, my dad has pneumonia.
We got a late night call Saturday night
that he was on his way
to the local hospital's ER.
We met him there.
The general consensus was
he aspirated and it led to pneumonia.
He was given 2 IV treatments and then sent
back to his facility with oral meds.
He is doing well too.
All I can say about the ER visit is
common sense is not so common.
When someone is told they are dealing with an Alzheimer's patient
it seems to me it would be wise to leave
the said patient sleeping and just use the forehead thermometer.
It doesn't seem like a good idea to rip off their blanket
and then loudly say
"Howard I am going to take your temperature now!"
and then use the forehead thermometer.
That tends to lead to a giant upheaval.
Also it is obviously "normal procedure"
to ask several times
"How long has he had Alzheimer's?"
The family can answer "well he as been in the unit since March.
I guess maybe 3-4 years."
But they continue to ask many more times.
I wanted to scream
"Why does it matter? He has it.
Can you just focus on this problem for now?"
It gives new meaning to the term "educated idiot".
I appreciate that we were able to get medical help.
I now truly appreciate a good bedside manner.
This doctor didn't have one.
Blessedly, Dad's pastor was there.
He does have good bedside manners
which led us to have them too. :)
Also, I need a medal.
I have weeded flower beds after the rains.
My arms and legs look like I have fought cats.
The scratches make me look tough like a 4 year old boy.
Next time I will wear pants.
I wore pants...just shorts with gum boots.
I am rural.
Get over it.
The men are picking corn so the chuck wagon is
back in business.
Roast and taters today.
Grocery store this afternoon.
I'll keep ya posted on the baby.
Keep us in your prayers.
Over and out peeps.
