Day: April 8, 2014

Tuesday, 8 April 2014

09:49 – Spring seems finally to have arrived in Winston-Salem. All the plants are in bloom or in bud, and everything is covered with pollen. Highs for the next week are in the mid-60’s to low 70’s (19 to 21 C), with lows in the 40’s and 50’s (7 to 12 C). No rain in the forecast.

I’m still working on taxes. It’s not that they take so long to finish. I could probably complete them in one long day working straight through. But I can deal with this crap for only a couple hours at a time.

Barbara’s mom is not doing at all well, either physically or mentally. She and Frances have decided to keep Sankie in her apartment at the independent-living facility as long as the facility is willing to allow her to stay there. They’re paying for a caregiver to be with Sankie 24X7. That costs more than moving her to an assisted-living/nursing facility, but Barbara and Frances believe that Sankie can’t survive on her own in a room. Her dementia is getting worse, and she’s terrified at night. Physically, she’s in very bad shape and getting worse. She needs someone with her at all times.
