Post by: Nick on August 11, 2020, 01:02:41 PM
Glad to have seen Big Sis. When I left today she asked about my route home.
Straight up to Oxford, M40, Coventry and the M69 up to leicester.

She said quicker on the M3 -  it goes straight to Twickenham!

I left Twickenham in 1978 noooo:

Yes there are other dementia causes: for example Vascular, Lewy Bodies and Parkinsons dementia are some and precise diagnosis is hard.   In any event their effects are all highly distressing and few real treatments beyond how to cope with it.

Getting old is no fun. The three I'm sharing this sub-ward with don't have Alzheimer's but all are a bit doolally. none can be totally aware of what's happening, they need constant care as all three are incontinent, one need constant watching as can be violent (I had to hold him back after he assaulted a nurse, physically and racially) They tend to spend all day staring off into space with no engagement with anyone. No life worth living.  noooo:

I fear for my mind:

Just to keep my car battery charged while the car is in dock I run the engine every now and then. Came to do it this morning couldn't find the keys. Also couldn't find the spare set. Spent half an hour rummaging around, no luck. Was even about to contact my son and accuse him of hiding them.

Odd thing was that I had the fobs. I'd found other keys (what for I've no idea) and went to put them on the key hooks by the back door. I looked at the car keyfob and it was then I realised that the key folded in the fob  doh:

Oh great, now her husband has died!!  Can this year get any worse?
Oh no that's awful, you said he wasn't well but that's just a grossly unfair turn of events for her

No...  noooo:

We have a close friend that was rushed into hospital two weeks ago...

He needed blood and everybody we knew of the same group turned up and donated.

Yesterday he was well enough to start some form of treatment but he tested positive for Covid (obviously caught in horsepickle) so all options are now off...  noooo:

WTF?

Big Sis now in a nursing home: "the nurses seem very kind"

No visiting

Funeral plans in hand for BiL but impossible to attend.

What a fucking nightmare!

Why impossible to attend?  Thought funerals were OK

Probably good that she's in a nursing home though even though the whole situation isn't a good one

Funeral is a four hour drive (each way from here) Hard to stay overnight. Whatever happens will be grisly without contact as we shall just have to stare at each other from a distance.  His daughters both have Covid in the house and my niece will not leave the safety of the Orkneys, so it would just be me and my sister  noooo:

Update: Big Sis has asked me to attend the funeral as otherwise it will only be her there! Strict instructions not to tell Pink Sis (feud)

Funeral is at 11.00 a.m., so rather an early start.

Date (Jan 21) coincides with next Willycam (sod's law) so happy to cancel that.

Gets black suit from cleaners.....

Just spoke to Big Sis who is still a bit addled, but going home tomorrow.

Asked her about her live in carer (who is arriving at 11.06 apparently!)

Her name is Jenny. She will do all the cooking, cleaning, bathing, dressing and so on. Trained nurse and trained bereavement counsellor  :thumbsup:

Me: Have you met her?
Sis: No,, but I have a pic, she is a negro

 facepalm: facepalm:

Me: FFS, don't say that! Her name is Jenny

Note to self: Call Jenny

Quietly investigating alternative homes in the area, given that her kids are still entirely useless, but biding my time

This looks possible
