Al Forbes Encourages Me When I Need It

I took a walk when I went to get my mail. I saw these and used my camera. I don’t know when I discovered I enjoyed a camera. I think it had something to do with being friends with Alastair Forbes, one of my friend bloggers.

Here is what I saw.

Facebook and Me

Facebook made a little video of me, so I wanted to share it with you.

Also for the first time in probably a year, I painted my fingernails and toenails. I feel a little bit more like the person I used to be. I also wanted to share and received permission from my friend to show you who has been staying with me. Below are the photos of my new look and my old friend.

Today I had no caregiver. My friend and I have been sharing the care of him. It hasn’t been a bad day but tonight he has spiked another fever. This time it was 104.5. This scares me but am doing everything I can do to help it come down. No, Hospice won’t come out for this.


Gloom Inside And Out

Al is home today. I wanted to take a new photo of him but I couldn’t do it. His face is nothing but a red rash from all of these medications he is taking. He came home in tears. He is not himself. I would say he is moving in extra slow motion due to medications.

He keeps telling me he is getting weaker. I think it is the medications doing it. I asked him if he had any pizza while he was gone and he said no. I asked him if he would like some for supper and he said yes.

It didn’t take long for me to feel a little down from seeing someone else  in that body than my brother, so I left. I went outside in the gloom and took some photos. Winter is showing its lack of color. I did find some green grass in places.

The sun is trying so hard to peek out but it is struggling. Although death and our mom is the topic inside, and outside looks lifeless, I know that soon, things will change and life will burst forth once again.

Here are the photos I took and of course Rhino wanted in the fun too.DSC00159
