Prayers for my monkey friends.
Need prayers for George, my ex, who I take care of -- he just had a seizure and is being taken to the hospital.  He has a long history of them -- just need my monkey prayers.
Blessings.
Prayers for George, prayers for you too Sister. You are such a wonderful person. I wish I could be such a kind person as you and the rest of the monkeys.

Good Morning Can!  How is everything?  How is your brother and all of your family?

Good Morning Monkeys!   

 
Thanks for asking Bearly. 
Spent the day with Mom on Friday.  She has an appointment with the doctor today to request he send the recommendation for her husbands long term care.
She has gone from not being ready to put him in long term care yet, to being prepared to have it happen sooner rather than later.  So, I'm happy to see my Mom feeling more comfortable about it.  We keep reassuring her she has done all that she can and more than most would be willing or capable of.  The fact that his son supports her decision has helped I think.

My brother has had his second treatment.  Not sure how that went, will know today.


Can, great news your mom and her husbands son are on the same page at putting him in care.

Prayers for your brother, hope and pray the treatment went well.

Here you go JSM.......wild cherry

YAY!!!!  We can make cherry wine!!!!   

or cherry pie - ba do ba, cherry ba do ba cherry pie....oh sooooo gooooood!

Gosh, folks.  I hate to be the one to tell you but there will be no cherry pie from this tree.  It is a redbud tree, often called a Judas tree in some parts of the country.  It is unusual in that the blooms come directly from the trunks with no branches of their own and the seed pods, which look something like mimosa pods also come directly from the trunk.  The birds make a big mess with wild cherry trees.I have about 20 on my property, therefore a big mess.  Wild cherry trees also attract tent caterpillers and they are difficult to eradicate. Redbud trees grow wild in my part of the country and there are many at the lower levels of the Smokies which are beautiful when in bloom. 

Eastern Redbud:  http://aolsearcht11.search.aol.com/aol/image?q=Redbud+trees&v_t=wscreen50-bb

Wild Cherry:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prunus_avium

I just noticed yesterday that the nodules on the red bud trees in my yard are starting to swell and it will be a big show when they bloom.  They are truly beautiful.
Thought it looked like a redbud tree, I love them, so very pretty whatever tree it is. Our apricot tree is blooming now. So beautiful.

For Bearly- you rant on, that is what we are here for.  I feel your pain of being in a rock and a hard place with your parents.  As for the laundry, is it really about you coming to do the laundry or is it she just wants to give someone directives?  I don't know in your situation but I have found often times it is not the task at hand but control of one another.

4donks is right- take care of yourself first.

We just found out that Mom is going to be moved from the memory care over to Assisted Living maybe this week. That is one of the first things she asked me was who was going to do her laundry.  (I wanted to say maybe she didn't need to be moving then if she can't take care of it herself?)


I hear you, I hope things get straightened out for you.  Thanks for permission to rant.  I know all about the control thing, unfortunately, my Dad was the one who helped my son and I with his autism, he went to therapy sessions with us and meetings and knew everyone working with him, and he is the one that would suffer in all of this.

 



Does the facility offer laundry services? I know it would cost money but better that then either he be neglected or you be worn to a frazzle!

I decided I will put the wash in and lay down in my Mom's room.  I have a bed there.  That should take care of us all.

Hi Monkeys  I am back on line. I really hate being without my computer. Lets hope this time they got it fixed. Hughes has terrible customer service. Went out Thursday and the tech didn't get here until this afternoon. He didn't even get the work order until late yesterday.

I sure pray Trimm is okay. And it's internet problems and nothing more.

4Donks lovely picture. Noticed today that all the wild flowers along to highway are starting to bloom.

Bearly I am so sorry you aren't feeling well and trying to do it all for everybody. All the Monkeys gave good advice. But like Can said it's easy to give advice when we aren't walking in your shoes. Prayers and Hugs for you and the family. an angelic monkey



Thanks, Cutie.  I went to my family doctor today.  I have blood clots on the back of my leg where you bend it, I have bronchitis, and a vitamin deficiency.  No wonder I feel grumpy!

 


Bless you heart Bearly, my prayers are with you.

Bearly...take care of your self! what were your symptoms of the blood clots ?
lately when I sit a long time..duh..on the computer....the back of my leg hurts really bad...it starts having pain from my butt to the back of my thigh, down to my calf...only on my right side...if only hurts when I sit...when I lay down or walk around I am just fine, no pain...does that sound anything like what you were experiencing? thanks..oh, and how did the doctor determine blood clots? X-rays?
Numbness or pain Cookie? You might need to see your doctor, could be a problem with your lumbar spine. Not that I am a doctor, nor do I play one on TV, nor did I stay at the Holiday Inn Express but when I had the problem with my hand, I never thought about it being a slipped disc in my neck. Hope you feel better.

Good point Cadi!

What is memory care?  Hear what you wanted to say, but what did you say?


Well, to the best of my knowledge it is the care of those who suffer from memory issues like dementia or Alzheimer's - in my opinion, a gentle name for the facility in lieu of "Alzheimer's" care.  Although she was diagnosed with dementia- not Alzheimer's.  I was told the difference but could not tell you.

She went to the memory care straight from the hospital with the understanding if she adapted well she could potentially move over into the assisted living. She has been there about eight weeks and they will assess her again this week to see if they think she functions well enough to move.  All signs , so far, point to a move.

One thing I have learned - did y'all know that confusion in the elderly can be as a result of infections, like urinary tract infections? Infections affect the brain.  When infections clear in the elderly, the confusion can lessen.

fixed quote


Thanks for the explanation Cadi.  Generally speaking I imagine it is more likely one would move from assisted living to memory care so it sounds like your Mom is making progress.

No, I didn't know urinary tract infections affect the brain and improve confusion when the infection clears.  Interesting.  Thank you.

One other thing, if the person has had anesthesia in the last year.  Apparently it takes a year to recover memory after that.


Did not know that Bearly. Thanks for the info.

New ‘Dancing with the Stars’ Cast Announced

Here are the 11 stars and their professional partners:

Former child star Melissa Gilbert, Partner: Maksim Chmerkovskiy

“Family Matters” star Jaleel White, Partner: Kym Johnson

Tennis Legend Martina Navratilova, Partner: Tony Dovolani

Soap star Jack Wagner, Partner: Anna Trebunskaya

NFL star Donald Driver of the Green Bay Packers, Partner: Peta Murgatroyd

“View” co-host Sherri Shepherd, Partner: Val Chmerkovskiy

“Extra” co-host Maria Menounos, Partner: Derek Hough

Thanks Bearly.  As a fan of tennis, I'll be watching Martina.  She has a lot of spunk and had a fantastic, lengthy career in tennis.

Oh, I didn't know you were a tennis fan.  One of my SILs loves tennis.  My son played tennis in Middle School.  I enjoyed watching him.

Martina is such a great sport (no pun intended).  I remember her being on Sesame Street and interacting with the Muppets.  I was enchanted with her interactions with the children's characters.


I love Martina, she was friends with my HS tennis coach and came and gave us some tips when I played tennis. Very very nice lady. I think she still lives here in Dallas.

How wonderful that Cubby played tennis!!! Great sport, one of the many reasons I need knee replacements.

I was wondering if everyone could say a little prayer for me. I am sure it is nothing but my sister has been wanting to have this big pow wow - I am not sure what about but she said it is serious and she needs to talk to me. We talk all the time by email and phone but she wants to do this one in private face to face! Like I said, I am sure it is nothing but I am a bit scared - she has not been feeling great lately and I am afraid something is wrong with her. I am so nervous - which is unlike me. So a little extra strength would be appreciated!
Prayers everything worked out TBM.

For Bearly- you rant on, that is what we are here for.  I feel your pain of being in a rock and a hard place with your parents.  As for the laundry, is it really about you coming to do the laundry or is it she just wants to give someone directives?  I don't know in your situation but I have found often times it is not the task at hand but control of one another.

4donks is right- take care of yourself first.

We just found out that Mom is going to be moved from the memory care over to Assisted Living maybe this week. That is one of the first things she asked me was who was going to do her laundry.  (I wanted to say maybe she didn't need to be moving then if she can't take care of it herself?)

Good point Cadi!

What is memory care?  Hear what you wanted to say, but what did you say?


Well, to the best of my knowledge it is the care of those who suffer from memory issues like dementia or Alzheimer's - in my opinion, a gentle name for the facility in lieu of "Alzheimer's" care.  Although she was diagnosed with dementia- not Alzheimer's.  I was told the difference but could not tell you.

She went to the memory care straight from the hospital with the understanding if she adapted well she could potentially move over into the assisted living. She has been there about eight weeks and they will assess her again this week to see if they think she functions well enough to move.  All signs , so far, point to a move.

One thing I have learned - did y'all know that confusion in the elderly can be as a result of infections, like urinary tract infections? Infections affect the brain.  When infections clear in the elderly, the confusion can lessen.

fixed quote


Thanks for the explanation Cadi.  Generally speaking I imagine it is more likely one would move from assisted living to memory care so it sounds like your Mom is making progress.

No, I didn't know urinary tract infections affect the brain and improve confusion when the infection clears.  Interesting.  Thank you.

One other thing, if the person has had anesthesia in the last year.  Apparently it takes a year to recover memory after that.



The simplest explanation of the difference is that Alzheimer's is a form of dementia but there are many causes including Alzheimer for dementia. Sort of like cancer and breast cancer - one is a subset of the other.

I have heard about the anesthesia issue - I know that any surgery or injury can rapidly accelerate the Alzheimer and that acceleration may or may not return closer to the before state.
Did not know all of this TBM, so thankful for your knowledge. My stepmom's dad has been dealing with Alzheimer/demetia and he had surgery a year ago. Very interesting.

My dad passed away almost 2 years ago from a form of Dementia known as Frontotemporal Dementia.  It was so devastating he went from a very kind and caring daddy to a mean, confused & nasty person within a couple of years.  It got so bad I couldn't be alone with him, he would become physical and we never knew when he would turn on me.

http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/frontotemporal-dementia/DS00874

 Frontotemporal dementia (frontotemporal lobar degeneration) is an umbrella term for a diverse group of uncommon disorders that primarily affect the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain — the areas generally associated with personality, behavior and language.

In frontotemporal dementia, portions of these lobes atrophy or shrink. Signs and symptoms vary, depending upon the portion of the brain affected. Some people with frontotemporal dementia undergo dramatic changes in their personality and become socially inappropriate, impulsive or emotionally indifferent, while others lose the ability to use and understand language.

Frontotemporal dementia is often misdiagnosed as a psychiatric problem or as Alzheimer's disease. But frontotemporal dementia tends to occur at a younger age than does Alzheimer's disease, typically between the ages of 40 and 70.



Frontotemporal dementia involve extreme changes in behavior and personality. These include:

Increasingly inappropriate actions
Loss of empathy and other interpersonal skills
Lack of judgment and inhibition
Apathy
Repetitive compulsive behavior
A decline in personal hygiene
Changes in eating habits, predominantly overeating
Lack of awareness of thinking or behavioral changes



Babs so very sad about your dad. I am so sorry this happened to your dad and you. Breaks my heart.

That was such a hard time Babs. Not knowing what was really going on. Until almost at the end. Dementia and Alzheimer's are as hard on those around the loved ones as the loved ones themselves.  an angelic monkey

Oh it was GE, thankgoodness we were finally able to talk to the psychiatrist otherwise we may never have known his true diagnosis.

 I'll never be able to thankyou enough for all the trips you made with me to the home standing in as "my bodyguard" during those trying times.     
Babs, you and GE's are truly lucky to have each other. I am lucky to have you both as well.  an angelic monkey
