Embrace the Suck

My Bush-bate was deposited into my bank account today! Woo hoo! Now I'm headed out to stimulate the economy. What should I buy? Gas? Groceries? Electronics?

Mom had a good day, though Nicole said she got a little bit testy in the afternoon. That's what happens with this disease. She woke up at 1:30 AM and wanted to get up and dressed. She slept the rest of the night in her chair in the den. Sometimes she's just more comfortable there.

One night he fell out and neither he nor Mom could get him back into bed. He was just too weak. He was down to skin and bones by then. That was the beginning of the end and he was gone two nights later. I miss him.
