Mission Accomplished, Sorta

Thursday, June 14, 2018

Sometimes you have to put your foot down to get a cure for a mammoth back ache.

Got up before 6 to hit the yard work. Took 4 hours to finish weeding the south corner. Transplanted some pampas grass. Mowed the yard. Trimmed all the trees. All before it hit 100.

Mom called while I was mowing to tell me the bath aide was there. I didn't get the message for over an hour, so I missed it. Bummer. Unfortunately, since I wasn't there, Mom refused to take a bath. They talked for awhile and got to know each other, then made an appointment to come again next Tuesday.

On the upside, mom got up and went outside by herself this morning. She sat on her patio for an hour before going back in. That's a first. This is her 3rd day in a row of being pain free since starting her new pain meds. I'm just afraid they won't refill it when she runs out and we will back to square one.

Hopefully, tomorrow I'll have a day as productive as today.
