Good Morning !!!
And a lovely one it IS, indeed !!! The much welcomed sunshine has arrived, and it is GLORIOUS outside !!! Hope everyone enjoys!
Joe.. counting off the days, are you ? Don't blame you a bit !
Hi there jm !!!
Siri... you found some fresh goodies.. good for you! Gonna cook up a storm tonight, eh?
Di..enjoy your do-nothing day !!!
Well, wanna see something special? Take a look at THIS !!!
Look who I got UP this morning !!!
Even got her into her kitchen table chair for B'fast:
And then washed and curled her hair !!!
Yep.. a MILESTONE, I tell ya !!
I managed to get her up to the BSC last noc, and she pooped a PILE !
DH helped me get her back up so I could clean her, then we got her back into the bed. So I thought to myself.. "tomorrow I'll see if I can't transfer her into her wheelchair, and then from there to the kitchen table chair, so she can eat B'fast out there for a change."
Thought I'd then put her in the living room in her liftchair awhile/.......
First I gave her a good bedbath early this morning. Managed to get her in her w/c without too much trouble, then even managed somehow to get her into her table chair... wow.
She ate her b'fast and seemed pleased to be back out "amongst the living". But she started getting tired at the table about half way through the hair curling, and I thought to myself "uh-oh...... hope she won't be to tired to stand and pivot into her w/c now"....
Which is exactly what happened. I hurried up with the hair, and tried to get her to stand to gt in her w/c but this time, it was not to be. She was jsut too tired.. she had sapped all her strength with everything we had already done this morning. After a couple attempts, and her barely standing between one chair and the other, she just gave up and let her legs turn to rubber.. and I had to let her slide down my leg to the floor.
"NOW WHAT" I thought !!!
Our neighbors are all elderly and frail, the one young couple next door were gone.... so I ran across the street and up a couple houses to the young EMT and dispatcher who came running over to help the day Mutti fell. She was home and more than willing to give me a hand.
What a Godsend she has been now, TWICE ! :angel2:
So the two of us managed to get Mutti up and back into her bed... where she promptly pooped.............. again. :stone
I did another diaper change, washed her up, tucked her in, and she has been sleeping soundly ever since.
Went back over to the young dispatcher EMT and visited with her awhile.. and to thank her again...what a sweetheart this young woman is. Has a 15 y'o son, and a boyfriend who just graduated college this week, and is going to be a teacher. They (the young woman and her son) have lived there for the past 5 years, but I had never actually "met" them until thes accident with Mutti when she came running over offering to help.
I'm so glad we've gotten to know each other.. she is a DOLL, and the sweetest, kindest person. They have a little doggie, too.. same age as Minnie, I remember them getting theirs just a couple mos. before we go Minnie.
She told me to please call ANY time if I ever needed her assistance with anything regarding Muttie, and I asked her to please come over to visit anytime, and sit out back with me with a cup of coffee.. iced tea.. or White Russian !
So.. that was MY eventful morning. Shew !!!
Will get Mutti up tonight again for supper and take her out to the kitchen again, but this time I'll have dh here to help.
We're getting there.. slowly but surely. This was a major step today, and I'm so proud of her... AND me !
