yea mom

Mom has started the hospice ball rolling. Actually some of y’all started it rolling, I added a little mo’, and Mom decided to get with the program so to speak. She spoke with my grandmother’s doc (our family doc) and he agreed that it’s time for hospice/home health care, whatever the hell you want to call it. The real question is whether Grandmama has the insurance to cover the shit. If not, Mom and I are going to have to work on some sort of hail mary roll reversal thing. Bank robbery is big down here. I think I could do that. Then she can stay home and tend to Grandmama. I don’t think it’s going to be long now, but people have thought the same thing about me several times in years past and I’m still here, albeit barely.

Tomorrow’s another day.

    Good for you and your mom. I’m glad to hear that things are in motion.

    And as for you, dear, you are STILL here, and NOT BARELY.

    Angry, where’s the voodoo doll pins? Methinks Greybeard needs a kick in the pants again. ;-)

    This is said with all the love in the world, dear. Hope you know that.

    You know, I’d hold off on the bank robbing…you really should be in running-shape to pull that off. Give yourself a couple more weeks.

    Seriously, home health care sounds like a grand idea.

    Wow – Good for you, I’m sure that having some help will be a big relief to all of y’all. And doesn’t medicare cover hospice? Seems like it should, anyway.

    But there I go expecting things to make sense.

    I’m still thinking of you, and I hope the pressure eases up soon. You’re doing a good thing, taking care of your gramma.

If you're interested in reading a fairly detailed account of addiction and depression, Cracked Head Memoirs might be for you. It basically tells how it was and what happened. Writing it helped me go from active addiction to recovery yet again.
