Hi all, haven't reported in since October, so thought I'd let you all know we are doing fine, incase you were wondering! We did not get sick this winter - WOOT! The weather has been so mild that Bob (who gets cold easily) has had quite a few screened in porch days already!
It is tax season, so I'm busting my head into the wall trying to find what happened to my hadicapped receipts for Jan-Aug - why do I always lose them? I know that I start putting them in an envelope right off in Jan, but by the middle of the year, that envelope always seems to get away! For newbies who may not know it, any supplies like diapers, guards(incontinency), bed pads, wipes, foot-up devices, hand braces, etc = medical deductions. I have that to work on and also Bob is turning 65 in May, so he has the open enrollment to switch from Medicare Advantage Plan to a Medicare plan with supplement.... so trying to figure out who to buy that from.
Bob is doing well and can talk somewhat better, but still trouble when he wants to say a specific thing, compared to just banter. He has always been agree-able to do any exercise that I say, "ok, we need to do this now" -he's ready. BUT..... I wish it was in his ability to just do these things on his own, but it is not. I am lucky he is so co-operative when I lead him it.... but sometimes, we have to tend to other things... and then they don't do anything, without someone else to lead them in it.
Will make a blog on what I'm doing for ME under my other blog, which I hope brings some ideas to other caregivers on keeping their own brains from going to pot.
This isn't much of a blog today, guess I just wanted to wave and say we are ok!
