It's Hit the Fan!

Some Knitting << Main >> Slowly Moving Forward

Hi, All. This has been 6 weeks from Hell. I have had more things go wrong in my life and don't expect any let-up for a while.

The care taker for my step-dad turned out to be a thief. He also totaled my step-dad's car and left the house in a complete mess. My life has been full of Police, Banks, Attorneys, etc. Then, I got a call this morning telling me that my step-dad has to move out of the assisted living place because he wandered off last night this this breaks their rules. He's fine and I have hired a Senior Care company to sit with him at nights at the assisted living place, but he has to move out soon. I'm not sure why they have this rule since the place is supposed to take care of people with dementia and Alzheimer's. They wander, don't they? Anyway, I've been run through the mill with no end in site. So, to Sue O. and other's who wondered where I am, I'll be blogging more very soon. I have gotten a lot more knitted on my sweater and a new loom (which is currently in pieces all over the place until I get a day to keep putting it together).

Take care and I hope you are all having a better time than I am.

Tracy, I'm so sorry. For both your stepdad and for you. My Mom had dementia and we had problems finding a place to take her. I hope things get better from here on out.

So sorry. My mother had Alzheimer's Disease. It isn't easy to deal with. I hope things are better soon.

I love you ya know... holler if there is anything I can do. Dad was down on the Point - it was the only place that would take him but he was far worse off than your dad. Holler if you need a shoulder.
