It's Almost Tuesday


Oh my goodness! The things that can happen in one week!

Mom was diagnosed with COVID again exactly one week ago.  Second time.  I was completely exposed, but I have no symptoms as of yet. Long story short, she has been hospitalized (she's on oxygen and Remdesivir) and diagnosed with a serious issue we never knew existed:  abdominal aortic aneurysm.  Due to advanced dementia, her medical decisions are left to my sister and me, but my sister has been out of town.  Surgery?  Or no surgery?  I still don't know.

She has two cats, so I have to go over at least every two days to clean up their litter box and make sure they have plenty of food and water and give them some love.

This is a painting I had a friend make to give mom for her 80th birthday.

I've got to get all her tax documents in order and decide who is going to do them this year.  And a number of other such chores I do on her behalf.

I've also had to go to the doctor, and I have another appointment in two days.  Two different doctors. Oh, what fun!  One doctor is requesting a change in medication, but it's a big fat no for me.  Too many scary side effects and cost-prohibitive.  Over $1,000.00 for one month!  Who has that kind of money?  Not me!

And we had pop-in visitors on Sunday!  Our daughter and husband from Austin and their two sweet little girls.  We love them so much, and with all the stress I'm under right now, it was such a welcome respite!

So moving on now...

This is something I would do!

I love a good pun!  Or even a bad one!

And one more for the road...

No, not my friend!  Someone else's friend!
Have a great week!

I'm linking up at Happy Tuesday and Random Tuesday Thoughts.


  1. Sorry about your mom. It is so hard when they are so sick. We went through that year for about five months, in the hospital, transitional care, surgery, not fun and very stressful. Great funnies!

  2. Prayers for your mom.

    Love all the funnies, but the coffee cup one made me laugh out loud.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. ♥

  3. I'm praying for your mom and hope your doctor can find an alternative medication that won't be so expensive.

    Thanks for the laughs!
