Well hope everyone has recovered from Christmas. I guess I will take down the decorations on the 31st. Have to think of how to decorate Mom's room for January. We had it looking pretty good for Christmas.
Well, Mom is doing OK. She held her head up really well all weekend. She is practicing writing her name and likes to write the name Joppy. Who is that? Anyone know? The therapist said she may be stuck in the time before she was married. She also starts the Josephine and changes it into the Joppy. She has written Eleanorski. Working on the Dombrowski, but no luck yet. I got a power of attorney form and will take it to the social worker to see about getting the form done and notorized about getting the form done and that, we can deal with her accounts.
Dad continues to have his issues. He threatens someone or something on a daily basis. Today he was going to blow up the DM to get her out. I said that if he killed anyone - or himself (he threatens to hang himself) that he will never see Mom and will go to hell to boot. I watched him today look in the mirror and throw punches at himself. One night he did it and was saying, "Bad Boy, bad boy". You have to feel for him. I am going to call his GP tomorrow and tell them what has been ppening. He needs some kind of antidepressant badly. I don't know what to do with him. Needless to say, I am looking forward to going home and back to work next week - just to get away from it. He even hates if I talk on the phone or do my e-mails until after he goes to bed.
So, that is what is happening here. I hope Mom does well with therapy this week. She seems stronger, but did have a weak day on Friday. She continues to eat well. She got a new roomie who is a good, talkative lady. She will look out for Mom- that's for sure.
Her first roomie died on Christmas Eve, and Dad and I went to the wake and funeral. There were only 10 people at the funeral - including us - 2 literal strangers. Joe was a nice man though and was crazy about his wife.
Dad says hello, so I will sign off for he is watching me.
Keep praying for Mom's health, Dad's peace of mind, and pray for me to have more patience.
