The periodic decline post

Mom says she's having a hard time concentrating even at things that really interest her. She's more or less staying in her easy chair exclusively. She's using the bipap to assist with her breathing during the day quite frequently now, though she's trying not to this week because Elaine is visiting.

We have a doctor's visit on Monday. These have been monthly. I think this will be the last one. After this the doctor will be needing to make a house call (he's offered), because mom isn't really up to leaving the house much even now. In a month, unless she's having a really good day, she'll be completely wiped out by going in to town.

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
