Great pix, octo! You are a girl after Ruth's heart. She loves "food porn" LOL.

Hope the UTI clears up fast, Ruth. Good you know the symptoms for quick dx/tx.

hi and ((hugs)) to all going through rough times. Thanks for the continued support.

Got a surprise call from the hospital this morning to come pick up mom. She was ready to be discharged and needed a ride home. Whaaat? The hospital social worker gave us 'bad information' about only being allowed to be discharged to skilled nursing for physical rehab. So the worry and hurry were for naught. Got her home, she went to bed, and I went grocery shopping to replenish the 'fridge as had emptied it out of perishables thinking she'd be gone a while. Mom was still asleep when I got back so headed home. However, when I called to check on her, she said she needed help so please come back. So back I went.

The hospital took her off some stuff so the fog has lifted somewhat and she's steadier. However, although I had set up her weekly pill minder when we got home, based on what she'd had at the hospital, discovered she'd taken all of Sunday's pills this afternoon. <sigh> Guess I will have to go every day and set up the next day's pills as she cannot be trusted to administer her own medications. She was adamant about staying IL but ladies I lost it and cried. So frustrated and stressed. She needs AL period. Going 2moro to make blueberry muffins and maybe one of the nursing staff will happen to pop in and bolster my plea. ♥

Badger - I would have cried too. I'm so sorry that this is happening to you & mom. Glad to hear that some of the fog has cleared and that she's more steady.

Vargadoll - I need to get my wedding ring adjusted. Thanks for the recommendation in Mount Dora. I'm weird when it comes to leaving my rings at jewelry stores. I definitely need a jewelry repair person that I can trust.

Ruth - Glad to hear that it is what you thought it was. 

I was so behind in my workout regimen yesterday. I crammed in as much as I could in the evening (after date night with mom). I reached 10000 steps, but I would have preferred to have done the bulk of it earlier in the day. I'm going to start early today.

Badger, a good cry is definitely needed. Can you get the doctor or the IL people to ORDER the move? That is was basically happened with my dad. Heart

Yes, I am drinking (water) like crazy! I think I caught this one pretty early, so already feel much better after only 2 rounds of antibiotics. I was awake, so went to Early Bird Yoga this morning. I am fighting off a cold as well so will take it semi-easy today. On Monday, DH & I take off for 10 days in Arizona, so I would prefer to be healthy at the time!!!!

Badger - my heart goes out to you as you deal with the issues surrounding your mom. It's just never easy. I can't tell you how many times my sister and I sat and cried our eyes out. Our parents want to be independent and make their own decisions but sometimes they just don't understand that they need help. I just hated watching mom have to give up her independence but in the end, we all knew it was the right thing to do. She finally saw what the worry, travel, and fear were doing to us. I hope that once your mom can understand the toll this is taking on you, she will be more agreeable to a facility. then she will have people caring for her all the time instead of having to wait for you to get to her home. You are both in my prayers.

Ruth - I just had a nasty UTI, too. Now I am adding cranberry pills to my "diet" and hoping that will help.

Had a nice visit with mom today. We made blueberry muffins and that made the house smell good. Was a nice enough day that I opened the living room windows and let the scent waft out into the hallway. 😊

When I asked if she'd do it for me, mom agreed to sign up for AL. I think the change in wording helped. She's not "going into" assisted living, she's not going anywhere. She can stay in her same apartment.

Knowing there's relief in sight, I'm less stressed and that's good for the both of us. Doing one day's worth of meds helped so will go back 2moro with chocolate chip cookie dough to bake. That'll bring out the neighbors!

Badger - The change in wording means all the difference in the world. I've found that to be true. 

Pat - Don't feel bad. I feel like an old lady when rolling out of bed in the morning, and after sitting for too long. Everything loosens up once you start walking around. It is annoying though. It happens to me also when getting up after a meal at a restaurant. I can't just get up and go anymore.

I was able to get in 45 minutes on the elliptical. I'm still at level 1. I may try to go to level 2 this morning. It's strange that 2 miles on the elliptical doesn't quite record the same as a 45 minute walk on fitbit. I did reach a little over 10000 steps, but not because of the elliptical activity. Whatever!

Yay, another day of playoff games. Smile

Hi and Happy Sunday! Hate to be ignorant but who's playing football today?

My med mgmt. system was nice in theory but impractical in application. Mom took all of her Sat bedtime pills plus all of her Sunday pills, sometime between 5 pm Sat and 9 am Sun.

Planned to stop at the big box store on the way out of town for one of those automatic pill dispensers. But then spoke with one of the nurses, a nice lady who cares about mom. She verified the empty pillbox. We're doing AL but med admin won't start for a few days so pls keep coming every day. Can do, already planned to. She said don't bother getting the gizmo.

Headed up soon w/cookie dough and 2moro's meds. If she takes them all by the time I get there after work on Monday, sobeit. Gymbag packed for a stop on the way home.

Ruth- the game is on downstairs here but I'm heading to bed! I know your team has a bit to go as it's the third quarter so I hope they make it...

I'm still sore from yesterday's yoga class. And I ran walked on the treadmill today for twenty min before supper. Because it's official. I signed up to run the 5K while the DD runs the half. If you read the details it's the free tree and the "fairly flat" that got me. Anyone want to join us?

EARTH DAY HALF MARATHON & 5K

April 22, 2018 | 8:30 AM

The Earth Day Half Marathon & 5K has quickly become one of CNY's most looked forward to springtime races! Along with some of the best swag out there, all participants get a tree to plant! Runners love the connection to the countryside setting and find it to be therapeutic for mind, body, and soul. As you run along the low-traffic country roads, you'll be rewarded with amazing views of rolling farmland, pastures with roaming cows and horses and the lookout at Beaver Lake. The race start/finish and post-race fest are at the Emmi Farm's Greenhouse with lots of parking, conveniently nearby, within walking distance.

The half marathon is mostly a loop course on low-traffic, country roads with many friendly neighbors that come out to cheer you on! The course is described as having rolling hills with a good one, endearingly called Aw-Come-On Hill, just past the 8 mile mark. The 5K is an out & back along two fairly flat stretches of country road.

The Earth Day Half Marathon & 5K event benefits the Syracuse Rescue Mission and local groups.

Congratulations Patriots and Eagles fans! Boo hoo for the rest of us.....but that's the way the ball bounces....or spirals in this case.

2Fun & Falconer, it would be so awesome if you would do the run together (and post pictures afterwards, of course, so we can enjoy it vicariously).

No formal exercise for me today, but I got 8,000 steps packing! Up & down the steps, round & round.....I am a very disorganized packer. My next report will be from sunny Arizona!
