Actually, one thing did. The thing that started this whole miserable chain of events nearly two weeks ago is that I lost my set of keys (and probably worse, the only working remote keyless entry thing for my car), but I found them a couple of days ago. :relief:
Hooray! Did you just not drive for two weeks???

Crap, I was still posting in the other thread.

No, I have an extra key on a remote that doesn't work, but my key has been sticking in the ignition lately, and for some weird reason that I can't figure out, it was really hard to lock the car manually. But now I have my working remote back, so, yay!

I'm not sure if you ever went through this with your parents, but you know how older people get really bizarre ideas in their head, and it's nearly impossible to convince them otherwise? My dad was on a very low dosage pill for diabetes when he died, and even though he had a heart attack, she's convinced that it was the pills that killed him. Also, she knows very, very little about nutrition, how to read food packaging, etc, so that part's going to be hellish. I would imagine that either I'm going to be shopping for her for a while, or I'll at least be right beside her, monitoring what she puts into her shopping cart. I hate that, it sort of puts me in the position of being the mean person who takes away some of her limited indulgences, sort of treating her like a child, and I hate the thought of that, you know? [/vent]

My brother's useless. My sister may be of some help, but she's got her own issues right now, her RA has been really bad lately.

I'm just a ray of sunshine, aren't I?

Don't worry about it! We all need to vent now and then. Too bad your brother's useless. My biggest fear is that, when it comes our time to deal with this sort of thing, my brothers will say that about me

Hey Drea! Good luck with your lengthy crocheting list!

Ali, that must have been great to hear about your mom's immigration status helping your own!

Awww, I'm sure they won't! We're a pretty close-knit family, but my brother has been on all our shit lists for the past six months or so...

oh..VP...NO FUN!!!

Tell your Mom that diabetes EFFECTS the blood Vessels AND the heart!

Our only younger cousin couldn't keep his weight down, had diabetes, and eventually died of a heart attack at? 40 ish?

well telling our Mom she should go into the near-by Nursing Home for leg/walking Rehab was a trip......
that mid year she had been swindled by someone coming to her door (got away w 400$ hidden b/c of how they set it up ) got caught in our neighborhoods ? 2 day Blackout in the 100F !// then a while after got Pneumonia!

all with in ? 3 months or less...our dad was in the same place (not the last one) for rehab for a year by then or so....
SO awhile after she came home...she started walking funny...her legs became weakish or unbalanced.....I had to semi-catch her and steer her to her bed.

So we had her Home Health Aide &me &my sis eventrually sit down and talk tyo her...

Ma...it's JUST for awhile. We PROMISE we/re NOT putting you in there fir good....

waht an experience!

aND THERE WAS THE TIME MOM DECIDED SHE WASN'T GOING TO TRY AND USE HER sorry caps---

her walker any more! (in the finaL nh SHE WAS IN, WHERE OUR DAD STILL IS)

darn caps my pinky slips.....[/
i get TOO tired to RETPE it unless it's a little or it's early in my Net session.

and always on stuff I'm intense about!
she sat in the wheel chair and that was that!
