I'm sorry to hear that CJT, but I hope this time they keep her in until she is well enough to go home. It makes it hard on everyone, but it is harder when it keeps coming back. Big hugs to both you and your Mom.

My Naturopath is very concerned about my acute pain in my right side. She said that she is sure there was some more damage to my liver when I fell and the fact only x-rays were taken to check the ribs isn't sitting well with her. She wants me to go back to the hospital with the pain and get an ultrasound and blood tests. She is a medical doctor as well, but not practicing so she can't order the tests herself. I trust her completely. She gave me another vitamin IV treatment today and it worked wonders! I still am in pain, but have the energy to cope with it.

She mentioned that the police have been here twice and did I know if it was for her? I haven't seen them, but I have been sick with this stinking cold and have been staying in my apartment. I don't want to infect anyone in the building. I also mentioned that there was a loud argument going on. The manager suspects that the granddaughter is staying with her. She is homeless. I was going to call the police this morning when I heard the loud crash. But I am so reluctant to bring more troubles on her. I am sorry now that I didn't. Like it or not I am going to have to get involved.
Oh, Addie, I'm sure that getting involved and helping neighbors will be just up your alley. Good luck.

Speaking from experience with my elderly mother and UTIs, don't get too worried if your mum is unusually confused and out of it. It's a well-known side effect and usually clears up once the UTI s sorted out.
Hope the hospital gets its act together and she's feeling better soon.

Not really. Me and most of the residents here do not get along with her. So I would just like to keep the peace if I can.

I just got my teeth cleaned, and stopped at Walgreen's for a new passport picture. :shudder: :yuck: Like drivers licenses, there is no smiling allowed, so now everything gets to look like a mugshot.
When I took my form and photo to the office to get my old biddies' bus pass I was made to go away and get another photo TWICE before they'd accept it because:-

My hair wasn't behind my ears - I had to scrape it back with a stretchy head band before they would accept a photo.

My facial expression was "inappropriate" - I think I wasn't scowling fiercely enough. It's apparently not enough just to avoid smiling

I was wearing make-up (nothing exciting or theatrical - just a little powder, mascara and fairly neutral lipstick.) There was nothing in the instructions about this.

The result is that I look like a mad axe-murderer 20 years older than I am. A friend who picked up my bus pass the other day didn't realise it was mine! Even the bus driver does a double take if he hasn't seen me before!

If I was arrested the photos would be more flattering!

You just made my day, MC! At least my picture almost resembles me!

Being wicked excited that our friends finally got a baby. They have been in the adoption process for a couple years now and they got the call, dropped everything and flew cross country to get their little boy!

This is one lucky little guy, two people who wanted nothing more than to be parents have adopted him. They are going to make a wonderful mom and dad!

Great news! Nothing like a new baby to make one's day.

Bella and i just finished watering the container veggie plants and gathered our harvest. This morning's haul included about a pint of grape/cherry/pear tomatoes. At least the ones I could get my hands on. There are more I can see.

Then I went over to the two roma plants and ended up with at least a dozen huge, ruby-red beauties. These poor plants are literally bending to the ground they are so loaded with fruit. Definitely gonna be able to make some sauce this year to can. Yeah!!

Great news for your friends, bakechef. All their patient, and unpatient, waiting is being rewarded. Best wishes to them all!!!!
