Mommie update

Now they called me to tell me that she has a bright red spot in the corner of her eye. I'm betting it's a little blood vessel that burst. So off we go again to the doctor. And it's rainy and disgusting outside, and she's not going to want to go out in the rain.

I was going to dye up yarn today, but I've really exhausted and will do a lousy job, so instead I'll write up some patterns for the Hubbo to pdf for me. And I'll knit on my shawl, which is soothing.

Elder care is not easy, but she is The Mommie, and I love her to bits, so off we go yet again to the doctor.

Grumble over, time for another cup of tea!

UPDATE: She has a broken vein and it's nothing to fret about. Whew. I gotta tell you that elder care is a lot harder in some ways than child care.

Comments: If I haven't answered any of your comments in the last day or so, it's because I've run out of steam here. But I love getting them, and I thank you all for reading and responding to my blather. You rock, folks!

bellavitafarm - The Mommie loves to argue and always wins. Always. Even if she's wrong, she wins. I've never figured out how she does it. I don't know whether to hit you or thank you for tagging me. tee hee.

Cici - It's a pain in the neck to stop what I'm doing and take her to the doctor, but then I remember how many times she took off from work and took me to the doctor. So, now it's my privilege to return the favor. She's very appreciative, and she's fun to be with, and I cannot imagine life without her, so she better stick around for a long time. As long as she's healthy, of course. I think that old people are the gutsiest, bravest, toughest people of all. And the Mommie does it with grace and charm. But then, she's The Mommie!

I bet you have tons of mommie stories too.

Glad your mom is doing alright. Yes, elderly care can be much more challenging than child care. The children you take care trust that you know what you're doing, while the elderly like to argue.

BTW, I tagged you on my blog to share 7 weird/random things about yourself on your blog.

Thanks for the update, glad things weren't serious. Hang in there, I have a 83 yr old mom too. I know what you are going through
