Home Health Nurse

Hey, Y'all,
We had another great night's sleep. Only one wake-up call from Gramps, and I was so sound asleep when he called my name that I jumped straight up and out of bed, flipped on the light, and helped him with his need.

Later this morning, I arose and took my morning pills and answered the telephone. It was the home health care nurse calling to come to the house between 9 and 9:30 this morning. So I got Gramps up and we had breakfast after checking his blood sugar. For those of you that are interested, his blood sugar has been being just perfect in the mornings lately. Yesterday, it was 102 and today it was 92, just where it is supposed to be.

After breakfast was over, Alice the nurse came and opened up her laptop computer and she asked questions and we answered them. She is a lovely lady, very professional and knowledgeable. We had some really good conversation and enjoyed the visit very much. She was with us about 2 and a half hours. I found out that Dub is considered home-bound which means he doesn't get out and run around every place. He goes to dr's appointments and not much else. I think it means no church until he is no longer home bound. She said that he is definitely not to drive and I said, "well, he won't be driving because he hasn't driven in ten years."

We are hoping for some company this afternoon. We haven't seen Mark and Allie for three weeks, and I am sure they will probably come over and Gene and Judy will probably come to bring us our mail which they were picking up for us.

Gramps and I had a pretty good lunch, at least he liked it enough to comment on it twice. The dishes have been done, and he is watching TV right now. I enjoyed online chatting with our daughter, Teresa this morning. Hoping to do some more later today. That is one of the things I look forward to each week.

I will download pictures later that I took over the last couple of weeks and will share them in the days to come.

That is all from Blabbin' Grammy today. God's peace be unto each of you. Love to all of you.
Bye for now.

Hi Grammy, Glad you are home and everything is falling into place. I know all about the Home Health. We have had two differend sessions in the last six months. they are always so nice. We just finished up the last session, but we hired the bath lad on our own to still come and give him a bath. That helps me a lot. Take care of yourself. Get all the rest you can! Love, Clara
