This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

Little Mr. Style-Setter....

Little Mr. Style-Setter


His Mom's pink calculator in his hands...all dressed up to help Mom at work...he will be two years old in September...can you believe it?  I spoke with him today on the phone, what a treat when his sweet voice calls me Grandma....

*****************************************************

UPDATE ON DAD:

The Psychiatrist called me as promised today.  He is putting Dad back on 5mg on Lexapro to start...took Dad off the Remeron.

When I told him I had been trying to reach him for almost two weeks, he asked if his staff called me to let me know he was going to observe Dad.  When I told him NO, he apologized.  He kept me on the line when he called the nursing home to tell them he wanted Dad back on the Lexapro and off the Remeron.

What a relief!

He explained the state keeps close tabs on patients on anti-depressants and does their best to keep patients off it.  He explained he needed to demonstrate how he is off the medication to justify keeping him on it.  Let's hope this does it for good....

*****************************************

Still working away on the prep work for the carpet installation...only now it is going to be laminate...I am getting WHIP LASH attempting to keep up with my husband changing his mind!  He does have a good idea however...at least this way we won't have to clean it once a year or replace it in another ten years.  This prep work is such a huge undertaking, neither of us want to face it again when we are even older than we are now!

I will be working an Estate Sale this weekend...and very busy tomorrow...so I will wish everyone a great weekend right now...

Your little grandson is so cute! Bless him. So glad that they have put dad back on the Lexapro. Thank goodness for that. I can see now that the Doctor had to prove the case for keeping dad on it, but it's not very clever really. Because dad could have broken something when having one of his falls. Anyway, I hope that this has now put your mind at rest again for a while. You had a warning notice from Google to not go into your blog, saying that you had content on it from Shabbyblogs. A couple of other friends had the same warning. I just pressed Continue and came on in anyway. My own blog carries the same warning today, and I think it will scare people off, because it says that if they go into our blog, their computer could catch a virus! I don't know how to get that warning message off that Google has put there. Hopefully it will go away on its own! I don't even have any Shabbyblog content any more anyway!

Good news about your dad, and have fun remodeling. You'll be pleased in the end.

What a little cutie he is. I'm glad you can talk to him on the phone now.
I'm also glad you finally heard from the doctor and got an explanation of what has been going on. I hope getting the medication back to what your dad needs makes things much better for him.

He sure is stylish - cute as can be!
Glad you heard from the Psychiatrist. It appears they have the same state rules as we do, but I'm sure glad he's back on it.
The laminate sounds like a good plan!
