HOW DO YOU MEASURE - MEASURE HALF A YEAR?
I didn't sleep very well last night. There were a lot of things running through my mind - including the question of how many minutes are there in 6 months?

Six months…

It's been six months from the time he slid off the bed to now. I can't figure out if it seems like yesterday or if it seems like forever.  He put on a hat that we used for crafts - he refused to decorate it at the time -  and out the door he went….

He wanted macaroni when he got home, of course… He shared with the pup...

…then settled in for the night watching a marathon of Ridiculousness.

Seems like old times.

(Sigh)

LAST NIGHT
He's scheduled to go home tomorrow. HOME.  It will be 6 months to the day that he slid off the bed and I had to call the ambulance and he went to East for the pneumonia. He's been in and out of  what…???  I think it was five different places?  East and the LTAC in Mckeesport, Seneca, back to East for Rehab, back to Seneca after that… I honestly lost track. How many dinners did I bring?  How many times back and forth to dialysis?  This has been one big old fucking mess. He's been a trooper, though. I don't know how.

YUM
The Dad loves Red Robin - we went there after dialysis. I'm not a big fan but my burger was actually pretty good today.

HE WENT OUT WITH A BANG
I'm all confused. My pictures are all over the place. I don't think I posted this from last week…  I sprung my dad out of the nursing home to meet his work friends at the gun show!

Jimmy texted me this pic.

He was having a good time and wanted to stay.  He ended up winning a gun and traded it in for the cash.

IF RICE PILAF IS WRONG I DON'T WANT TO BE RIGHT
We met Chrissy at Red Lobster today after dialysis. He's always jealous when she meets her sis-in-law Fern there and has been waiting and waiting to go with her.

He's a French dressing kind of guy.

He almost pulled a mussel eating all of these.

I ordered the chicken and, as Chrissy says, I'm the only person in the world that orders rice pilaf.

We had to have one mussel with him to mark the occassion.

Red Lobster - check.

LIL SLUGGER
I saw these cupcakes at the store and got a couple for some of the ladies that are really into the Pirates. It seems like our residents are more into baseball than football… and most are women. The pup waited very patiently to get a little taste of ours. Love the Bud.
