Back once again

Hello once again!  I've missed all of your and especially writting my blog.  There has just been a storm of events since the holidays.   My parents have had more than their fair share of illnesses that they will be recovering from for the next several months.  Living about an hour away from them doesn't give me much leverage to get down to take care of their items.  There was grocery shopping, mail, bills, and visiting while I would get down there.  Mind you in the most busiest time of my business year !  Of course there was keeping track of their daily activities, coordinating with family members and extended family and friends of theirs.  Of course there is the matter of dealing with hospitals, nurses, doctors, pharmacists, insurance naysayers, nursing homes, in home health aids, over government medicare and that is just a few of the players in the last eight weeks.

Today begins a new chapter in this challenging time.  Mom arrived back home about two weeks ago.  Dad arrived back yesterday.  Both of them are challenged with their health and their respecitive health care therapists arriving to care for them.

With all that, Mom and Dad are back home.  Just a note, thanks to Patricia, their health aide.  She really assisted in a time that was very trying for all of us.  Welcome aboard to Maggie who is the weekend aide.  Her help to get the home ready for Mom's return was just amazing.
