Mom finished up her antibiotics yesterday. I hope that the UTI is cured and that the diarrhea will now cease and desist. I think some relief from that will do us both a world of good. This morning I had to strip Mom's bed and wash the linens because of an accident. I also scrubbed down her bathroom with Mr. Clean. This routine is getting very old as she gets very upset and emotional about it. Something in her childhood must have affected how she views this because she now thinks that she is unclean when this happens. Baggage sucks.
It is a beautiful day here today, sunny and in the 60s. Lily and I are laying in front of the sliding glass door enjoying the cool breeze. At least until Mom pages me and demands that I spend every waking moment with her.
My uncle called today. He is thinking of bring my mom's sister, my auntie, to visit at Thanksgiving. In fact, he's kind of looking at it as a family reunion. His son and daughter are thinking of coming and he suggested asking my brother and sister and their families. That would be fun! We haven't all been together in a long time. I hope we can swing it. Aunt Mary Ellen, Mom's sister, has Parkinson's. She is pretty with it cognitively but like Mom can no longer drive and has difficulty walking. I will need to get going on the ramp at the back door and perhaps railings at the front door.
