Just another day

My buddy Wade flew in yesterday and is staying with us for a few days. He was just here at Christmas and stayed with us then too. He asked about Mum, as he always does, and was happy that she at least remembered him when he was here at Christmas. I told him things were worse, and not to count on it this time.

And how was your day?

No matter what, you have to see the humor in every day.

What a sad system!

It’s now been three weeks since Mum’s status was upgraded to “emergency” first available bed. Some emergency, eh? I even have our provincial MLA’s office calling them every day to find out if a spot has become available. When I first contacted them it was to see if there was any way for me to get any assistance to help us survive. They ran into the same roadblock – that I “chose not to work”. Talk about out of touch with reality/. Like I have a choice? Failing that they said they had some “special contacts” who could get around the system, and get her treated as a priority. Yeah, right. Three weeks later and nothing.
