This is one of my favorite pictures of Lily. It really shows her 'blue' coloring and green eyes. She is a sweetie.
Today was my meeting with the HR rep. She was very understanding and suggested that I utilize the FMLA act more often than I am currently doing. In the US this is basically all that we have, whether we are caring for a loved one or caring for ourselves. So I will buck up and deal with it, but Mom and I will always come first.
Speaking of Mom, she is doing pretty good still. She was emotional when I arrived home but she settled down. Her caregiver said that they had a good morning. Her aphasia is becoming much more of an issue.
I receive periodic wellness calls from my health insurer. Today I received one of these calls. The RN was so compassionate and genuinely concerned about me. We talked a little about caregiving; she mentioned that her mother in law has ALZ. Somehow we got on the topic of adult day care and she said that her MIL is more agitated after a day there. Mom sometimes is that way too, but I believe that the socializing and stimulation is good for her. I wish there was some way that I could get her to go more often. I may need to re-enlist Joyce the cop for this.
