A turning point?
Do I even DARE say, things might be looking better? This morning, the FIL is being moved to a temporary care facility for about 2 weeks and then after that, the plan is to move him to Assisted Living. Thanks to the VA and other agencies that finally started working together. Actually I hate to admit it, but him having this episode, was the grease that got the wheel going.
Yesterday the husband took Charleen out with him and I had all day to myself. I loved it. I feel so much better this morning.
Next week I will be checking out some places that help with Learning disabled people - Soon, she will be able to get a physical and find out the cause of her shaking. Poor dear, cannot even load up a taco due to the shaking. I am observing all of this because she put me down on the SSI as the one who will be observing her and filling out the questionnaire about her motor-skills and abilities. I talked to the husband's sister who happens to work with LD adults. I did not know this, so I had many questions for her. One thing she told me was no matter how hard it was, I must insist she try to do things for herself. LD adults sometimes, get lazy and just let people do things for them. Charleen has admitted this to me - always letting Roy do things for her. Yes it takes her time and she is slow but most of the time, she can do things for herself. She definitely needs to keep busy during the day and have structure. She won't learn anything for her own good, sitting around watching reruns of Charmed. She also went all day yesterday, not mentioning her husband. I am so tired of hearing about that jerk - it's hard for me to keep my own emotions out of it.
So this afternoon, our VFW post is having a turkey dinner for everyone. I am bringing mashed potatoes. It will be nice to get out and enjoy some company for a little while.
