I now have the pharmacy putting her meds into dated and timed blister packs....no more bottles.

I have someone going in once a day to keep an eye on things, now. A little pushback....but that's to be expected.

I told them that if they want to maintain independence....they will need a little help.......I know...an oxymoron....but it's reality.

The PIG performed well......no oil blowby anymore.

Although I can't really relate to the mechanical issues you're having with The Pig...except as a bystander, I can empathize with the health issues that parents can bring to the table.

My dad's health slowly deteriorated over 10-15 years with pulmonary and circulatory problems, heart attacks, aneurysms, and he finally passed at 74 from a stroke the night before he was to be discharged from his last visit to the hospital.
My step-father began suffering from advancing stages of Alzheimer's only a couple of years after earning his 3rd Ph.D. at 80 years of age. He eventually required round the clock aides at home for 3-4 years before passing.
Once he passed, it became evident that my mother was also starting to experience the signs and symptoms of Alzheimer's, and she required the same type of 24-hour home-care for several years before having to go to a nursing home due to worsening episodes of violence. She passed last year at 93 unaware of almost everything.

As you pointed out, for parents (or anyone) advancing in age, health issues can become a real concern. Hope the provisions you've made for your mother with her pharmacy help to reduce the risk of med errors, and the home visits can be supportively helpful as well.

Also hope the recent puzzle with The Pig is solved.

Are you enjoying your vacation yet?

@nobby I've gone through some trying times in my life but nothing comes close to the anguish commensurate with the failing health of elderly parents. Both of my parents passed over a decade ago but the memories never do. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Nobody gets out of this life alive.

Thanks buddy.

I've had a good run with my parents....85 and 90. They are still in fairly good shape...Dad walks 4 miles a day! I'll be taking him canoe camping in 2 weeks....our 44th year doing that.

It's the God Damn stubbornism that drives me nuts. I want to hit my Mom on the ass with a yardstick like she used to do to me.

Anyways....all good. I have a sister in Montreal keeping an eye on things.

I'll be retired in 18 months.....I'll have LOTS of time to change some diapers....LOL.

Chris, your messages causes me to recall the GTG at Rowdies. Your dad was a real highlights of the weekend - a true gentleman and lots of fun. Best wishes to your dad and mom.

Cheers,

genießen Sie die Fahrt
