Spent another very loooong day at Mayo yesterday – tests and appointments for Rick resulting in a backslide due partly to my care. When we ran out of one dressing and called the Mayo Store for a refill, they substituted a non-stick gauze that actually developed a skin allergic reaction on Rick’s ankle. I don’t question things like this because I have no idea what to do. You can’t send a picture to the doctor which would be helpful – you have to use their “portal” system which is another technology issue on my part. I only use an IPad and sometimes things don’t work the same as on a desktop so I tried to get my desktop computer working again and all I can get on the screen is “Monitor going to sleep”.
This is my observation from yesterday – not one doctor or nurse asked ME how it was going – not one wanted the opinion of the caregiver! And not one doctor told Rick he should walk more and so it’s just me fulfilling the role of Crabby Wife.
Mollie is visiting today – she needed a brisk walk or two.
No more rats since Monday morning – I think I’ve caught 8 so far. Could that really be all of them???? I doubt it – the traps are staying put.
I get so tired of my chair covered with a cat or just cat hair – nothing is sacred around here – they think they own it all!
The day started off sunny and nice so I planned to go to Target until it suddenly got overcast, colder and started spitting sleet – I can wait for a nicer day.
I think I’ll go sew something fun and watch a movie on my IPad – what are you doing this afternoon and evening?
