I'll put this here, and on another thread; it's taken me a few days to do it. For any here who wouldn't know, my wife suffered total heart blockage in June 2012. It was twenty minutes between total arrest and resucitation. She recovered with no real physical disability at all. She has been able to do her own personal care, other than keeping track of pills and insulin. It's been up to me to cook and keep track of any schedules, but, no big deal; we've traveled to interesting places and life has been good.

Life-long diabetics are very subject to dementia, and to early onset. Judy's neurologist confirmed probable alzheimer's a year or so ago. Her ability to do things for herself began slipping away. We arranged a care-giver for three days of the week, and with that respite, we've been doing okay. A couple of weeks ago, her condition dropped off abruptly, to where she would not allow me to give her necessary care safely at home. Our care-giver came in daily while I arranged placement in a nearby facility; even so, I had take her for emergency hospitalization for a couple of days before we got her situated.

In the hospital she was restless, but cooperative with nurses and doctors. We took her to the care home Friday morning, a week ago. Thursday they asked me to come in for a meeting. She has been refusing to take her meds, or get up for meals. We arranged hospice status. By their definitions for hospice, they will continue the same care she would have received, so far as remains possible without force or restraint. They will not send her for hospitalization. We had completed a DNR a couple of years ago.

I think she is in the hands of good people, who will do the best that can be done. But my heart is in pieces.
                            Dean.

"Don't worry..." is a great way to to start a thread that worried me so much I clicked the wrong one and saw a shitload of posts with today's date. I was freaked out by that until I realized I was on the wrong thread. Finally arriving here after WAITING so long... 20 seconds or so... it was comforting.

Glad to hear all the good news, froggy.

I am not the curious sort but as far as yer May away goes, I'll guess not Kent County, NB nor anywhere near Blind River.

Don't worry, guys; no new crisis at all. I was just showing my wife the latest on Nigel Patterson's thread for Jane, and then decided to run back through this thread. Judy's rememberer is working significantly better than when she saw this just after getting out of the hospital. In the next few days after this trailed out, we got to re-visit some 'catters live, and meet several more for the first time. Things have returned so near to pre-crash norms that any differences don't amount to beans. Judy's cardiologist has long since declared that her heart is working like nothing had happened, which I think astonished him. The kidneys have gained back to where they're nothing to worry about. Judy went through a stint of cardio rehab and a stint of cognitive rehab. We did the St.Martin trip, which was great. About 5 weeks ago we signed up at the local Rec center; we're both getting the best consistent exercise, every weekday morning, that we've had in years. I don't think I'll tell ya quite yet where we're planning to go in May.
Re-reading this drove home again how profoundly I appreciate all of you for seeing me through last summer. Bless you all big bunches.
       Dean

The sister-in-law just picked up some books for our small great nephews. One is about naked mole rats. The last page says, "Some of the naked mole rata were naked. Some of the naked mole rata wore clothing. All of them had a great time.". That, folks, is a perfect
allegory for the beach at Gay Head. : )

I went to summer camp on Martha's Vineyard many years ago. One of my favorite memories was sleeping out on the dunes at Gay Head, specifically watching for meteors. They sky to the east is really dark. If we were at the clothing-optional beach, we opted to keep them on. ;-)

Pouring rain all afternoon into evening on Martha's Vineyard. But good times with family and friends. Earlier in the day we let Judy's bro and wife abandon us on the beach while they went to pick up our nephew and his family at the ferry. We got in a long walk on the beach, and the tradition on this beach being what it is, less strait-laced folks than us might have gone skinny dipping for a bit. ; )

On that note - there will be a bed available Sunday night if you'd like to stay. Micca will be in the other room. We are invited to Kendall and Jacqui's for an afternoon bar-b-que but you will have your lobster roll at some point.
I have running water, food, drink and fans - no AC. But it has been cool at night. Not luxury or even particularly elegant but good company.

My worst experience was in Detroit. Flight cancelled due to an ice storm. Checked into a hotel half starved and exhausted after hours in the airport. Went to my room to find NO WATER. None. At the front desk they told me that a pipe had burst - they knew it when I checked in. Best of all, no kitchen. They had had a fire the previous week. The only food available was in a vending machine in the lobby and it was empty.
It was a big chain hotel - can't remember if it was Holiday Inn or not.

Never stayed in a hotel with an outhouse. Once had to crap in heavy duty plastic bags in a makeshift crapper (garbage can) but that was inside a house trailer on the coast of Labrador. Makkovik, labrador - look it up. It's ah, er, quaint. We were looking forward to a sewer hookup but the toilet cracked all to hell when they dynamited the bedrock next to/under the trailer to install the pipe. I was asleep in the bedroom next to the washroom when the blast went off (a simple misunderstanding)... near shit myself.

Say... this is kinda thread drift innit? Who started this thing about crappy hotels?
