Hold on now....who ordered this hot humid sticky bug infested sweaty weather?!!
Now, C'mon folks....first we get blown away and now we are melting.... like the wicked witch in the Wizard of OZ : I'm Melting...... OK, guess that's why they call me the Drama Queen at the Post!
Next subject: My Aunt Martha called yesterday and told me that Uncle Ralph's dementia has just about worn her out! Not only did he have a mini stroke and have to go to the ER and then was admitted to the hospital, but they called her the next morning and told her to pick this man up. He wouldn't stay in bed and they were afraid that they were going to have to tie him down. Martha went to get him, and no sooner arrived at home, and Uncle Ralph was missing. In that split minute, he had hopped on his bicycle and took off! Sure enuf, a neighbor called and Ralph had landed in their driveway and tore up his arm. Back to the ER, stitches and once again admitted. This time they put Uncle Ralph in a wheelchair and he stood guard at the night nurse's station. Poor Martha she's got her hands full! I am sure there are those out there experiencing the same thing with a friend or family member. Bless you and hang in there. We have to be sooo patient in these situations realize that it sure as heck could be us someday. Uncle Festus said that he makes it a point to be nice to his kids....they're the ones choosing his nursing home. Good point, Festus!
Aunt Annie has taken up a new exercise program. She says that she took up jogging just to hear heavy breathing again! Does Uncle Henry know that?
