Little Video of Al and Pictures

Well the first full day is almost over with me and Al. I think that I would pretty well consider him incontinent with the bladder area. He has been very wet every time I have checked. I try to put him on the bed side commode but nothing happens.

He ate pretty good all of his meals today. He also adds some variety to each meat with his new song I heard. I learned the words very quickly. He cusses a way at the disease telling it off like you wouldn’t believe.

Normally, I would intervene here with some words of wisdom, but I can’t do it. I see how hard it is to get a spoon to his mouth. I see how many seconds he fights and fights. He is learning to take my cue and eat more foods with his fingers.

I took some shots at supper so you can understand what I see. I have one short video, a couple of shots of him, and of course you know who was guarding the house. Yep, Rhino.

Always look at each day with a new sun a new leaf being born and a new cloud forming.

Terry Shepherd

This was my day yesterday. Looking at life through new glasses. Not like any glasses of the most expensive kind in a shop, but a magnificent pair of life glasses.

Guaranteed to bring out the brightest, newest, and most hopeful view each time you look through them. When you put them on each morning you will see the sun for the very first time. New birth will be given to the tree of life. Clouds will come in new shapes yet undiscovered from even the most intelligent human life. The sun will shine brightly as it has just been born today.

When you wear these you will see hope in all you see. Life will look lighter and brighter than the day before. You will forget yesterdays’ sorrows and see only today and bright futures.

As I brought my brother home yesterday and laid him gently into his new bed, I had my glasses on. I could see my future and all pasts were erased as if it were a giant etch-a-sketch.

I looked down at him sleeping and thought he is a part of me. He has been away  by the devious mouths of hungry,  money-making people. I failed to see the truth. I looked on the days gone by. My confidence was snatched a way as if I was an infant drinking from my mother’s nipple and suddenly left alone to make decisions bigger than life.

Now I can see fresh vegetables growing from Mother’s earth. Carrot tops sprouting new life. Pumpkin vines spreading their branches ready to soak up any new energy coming within reach. garden

When I look towards the heavens I see new growth on my tree of life. Delicate yet strong leaves pouring life into our spaces providing beauty and comfort.

Life is good, let us not walk blindly through today. Place your glasses on as I do and see your today in a brand new way.


First Day Home

Hi all my friends. I was very upset today. Not with any of you, not even with the facility. I was upset because I had to pay family gas money to bring Al home. Maybe I shouldn’t have been but I was.

With me getting over that quickly I was calmer than I…
