Wow - February is here!

Now that I'm on Family Medical Leave, I've lost track of time.  It's a good thing that I follow Oh' Boy It's Farley! or I might have missed out on Currently:


This morning I took my father to the hospital to get a drain inserted to prevent his lung from filling up with fluid.  I'm happy to report that the procedure was a success!

January was an all-around tough month.  During the first two weeks, my father kept calling 911; ending up in the hospital; going home; calling 911....until I told him that "I'm taking over."  He was NOT happy that I was making him go on hospice and move to my house.  Now he's been here for a little over two weeks, and I'm adjusting to the constant call of  "Susan!"  I also brought him home a bell from school - that may have been a mistake.  Of course, he wants to go to bed early and then he wakes up early; as soon as I hear the walker, I know it's time to get out of bed.  It's like having a toddler.  Caretaking is HARD work!

This warm weather and sun feels amazing!  I'm sure Floridians would consider the 50's and 60's cold, but it feels so great to feel the sun shining on your face at this time of year in Massachusetts.  I have spring fever in a bad way!

Happy Groundhog Day!
