I am sooo sorry.......

I have been taking certificate classes this week to actually go back to work and it is eight hours of intensive training each day....today it was eight hours just on Alzheimer's Disease. It is a very heartbreaking disease for both the sufferer and the family.

I am training to be a home health aid....with trying to go to college to finish my nursing degree...I saw that the local Committee on Aging was training and hiring new 'home health aids'

I will be trained to go into the home of the individual (elderly, disabled, etc) and bathe them, cook, clean, drive them to appts or take them shopping. Some will be more intense if they are bed-ridden and then everything will need to be done while they are in the bed. But some are easier by just "babysitting" them to give the normal caregiver a break.

The pay is not great but it is a pay and they are more than happy to work around my classes when they start in fall.

So this weekend...I am going to by my first pair of 'scrubs'!

I think that part of me is delaying finishing my report since it is the last day but it was the BEST day! So let me finish my classes this week and then I will have plenty of time to upload the pictures and give you the happy ending to my tale!!!

Good for you for getting your nursing degree! By boyfriend will be finished in July so I know how busy you must be. He has class and clinicals Mon-Thurs and then works 11a to 11p Fri-Sun.

I've enjoyed reading your report and glad you could have fun despite all the sad news. Your girls are adorable! They remind me of my sister and I when we were kids and our parents would take us to Disney!

I bought my first set of scrubs...actually three sets....

no they are not disney, they are solid colors but they are pink, "lilac" and "rose"

I cant afford the disney ones just yet......and I am not a strong sewer to make my own.

Just found your TR and am really enjoying it. Your trip sounds magical, and I'm so sorry so many bad things have happened in real life while you were away.

My grandmother has Alzhiemers and it is an evil disease. My grandfather was her caregiver and at 92 this past August he just got tired and fell asleep. Taking care of her I think just really wore him out.

Now she's in a "memory care facility" and I just love it. I visit her on Sundays, take her to church sometimes etc. They do a great job and have her medication really well balanced. It's fun actually. She's like a child again. My DD8 loves to visit her also and is so patient. She'll sit there and answer the same question over and over and just smile. Growing up, she cared for me, now I get to care for her.

When Papa was still alive they had an agency, much like what you'll be doing, come in and help them. They were such kind people. Many of them came to the funeral and they even visited her at the home often the first week or so to help her with the transition. It's a great thing you are going to be doing - thank you!
