That's quite a situation. I'm glad she's getting some help form your State with the 3x a week. Make sure you vet the agencies for the direct home care (If you've not done so already) as some of them can be kinda sketchy to their PSWs. But yes that will help a lot once that starts. Here's hoping things get better soon. I have firsthand account of this sort of care through my wife and her dad as they looked after my MIL, and it can be very stressful on the caregivers. The dinner thing sounds like it's a huge headache you don't need.

I really appreciate your compassion here and I very much wish you and yours the best as the long family struggle (process?) goes on.

Thank you.


No worries at all.

Yeah, we got past the death but now we are dealing with the fallout of discovering in the Autopsy that the degenerative neuro afflictionshe had is genetic, and atosomnal dominant meaning that my genes don't water it down or prevent the possibility of my kids getting it, let alone my wife, her siblings and her cousins.

It's been a shitty few days dealing with that.


Super shitty. I am so sorry man. Autosomal dominant stuff really sucks. If you don't mind me asking, what is the name of the disease?

My dentist says I need a lot of work done! I値l wait till next year so my benefits will reset but apparently I知 looking at maybe 2000-4000 dollars!!

My mind is blown by this figure! I can稚 believe it. So much money and such a waste.

I値l have my benefits and my FSA but even so this is an ungodly sun and such a waste of money. I知 resigned to it but also angry. I値l explore my options to see if I can get better dental coverage but I somehow doubt it

You ever have a person behind you in traffic that inspires zero confidence in their ability to drive a car? My default setting for driving these days is always play defense, because people have lost their minds and have just decided to go with a "fuck it, my insurance will cover me" attitude. But damn, I had this blue hair behind me that I was almost positive would rear end me. She was just stopped in traffic, not moving, sitting there pulling on an unfiltered Pall Mall, barely able to look over the dashboard with a "where the fuck am I look." So I cruise along around her, and I glance in my review mirror and I noticed she's going again, and she settles in right behind me. Man I was white knuckling it, with my eyes glancing up at the rear view just expecting any moment she would crash into me. When traffic lightened up, I damn well made sure to not be the car right in front of her.

Kid broke his arm yesterday. He went to a neighbors house to play basketball, I did not expressly tell him not to use the trampoline so he did and got hurt.

Trampoline does make it easier to dunk... not sure about dribbling.

When we moved in to this house there was a shower in the corner of our bedroom so we ripped it out and used expanding foam to fill in the extractor fan hole and had it plastered over. Something has spent the 7 years since carving a home into the foam. You can hear it at night and it wakes me up. It's getting closer to the inside wall and I imagine one night it's just going to appear inside my bedroom. Logic suggests it's a bird or a bat but when you're awake in the dark listening to scratching inside your bedroom walls you do have to wonder....


I've seen this movie. It ends badly for the Colonial Marines.


Another summer over and the creature is back carving its winter home. I need to know what it is before the night comes when I wake up with it on my face.

If it was a bat would it be more quiet at night or in the day time? Bat is my best guess because I have never seen anything flitting around outside during the day.

Also, we really need to get this house renovated.

Mom has a tumour on her pancreas. They don't know if it's malignant or benign. She's having surgery to remove it, and bloodwork this AM. She has no symptoms. They came across something on the pancreas while they did a CT scan near the area on another issue.

I hope to hell it's not cancer, because it sounds like Pancreatic cancer is bad and acts really quickly. I don't want to lose my mom.

This in the same year that my stepdad had his prostate cancer removed, had an immuno-neuro disease diagnosed and spent a year trying to get his meds right so he can live normally and not be sent to a LTCH, my MIL died of a rare neuro disease, and we just found out it's a hereditary gene that my wife (he siblings and cousins) and all our kids all have a 50% chance of getting.

2021 sucks y'all.

Wow, really sorry to hear that QT. Fingers crossed it is benign and the surgery will resolve the issue. Cancer is a terrible disease. Lots of strength to you and your family.
She went and she left me like litter. She took all future summers with her. I lost all my money cuz I tried to bribe her. Now I can only afford an amateur sniper.

What a deluge of bad news. I'm sorry you're going through all this. I'm glad you're talking about it and that your step-dad was able to get his meds right.

Here's hoping your mother does not have cancer.
