Still busy with the parents. Dad is coming along very Slowly, and mom has her issues too.
Another 911 call. Tued out to be extremely low blood pressure. Dad's BP was 71/33. No bueno! Passing out and delerium. But his Dr adjusted his meds, so we're keeping an eye on him.
Mom is getting more bizzarre by the day. And this shit is hereditary??
Still living at their house. Been a month and a half now. The place I am renting is being sold out from under me, so I am looking for a place to move to. Hope that works out, my sister and I are going to get a place together so we can be closer to them. She and I are going to be going on a 4 day work week so we don't have to leave them alone. I think we kinda have it worked out, and as soon as I can get a place and get moved, I will be going back to work. And that means that I will be able to stat scrapping again! YAY!!!
I MISS YOU GUYS!!!!!January 22, 2012 at 1:38 am #153414
We miss you, Robin! Sorry your life is so complicated right now. You and your sister are amazing kids to take care of your parents like this!January 22, 2012 at 1:48 am #153415
Robin, I feel your pain darling. Taking care of a family in crisis is WORK!!! I know…Thank goodness your parents have you, and glad to hear you have help. That is so important that it doesn't rest on your shoulders alone. My prayers are with you. We miss you terribly!! xoxoxoJanuary 22, 2012 at 2:06 am #153417
Robin…I feel your pain and worry too. My Mom was terminal and my Dad had alzheimer's….and I'm an only child! It was really difficult to make sure that they were well taken care of and still hold down a job. I was lucky to find an angel who came in to their home and brought a staff with her to take care of them 24/7. Mom passed very quickly, but Dad got to be the King for a year with the best care ever. His Angel is now my adopted sister, and we have remained close friends since then. She is my DGD's Godmother. I am keeping you in my prayers.January 22, 2012 at 2:08 am #153418January 22, 2012 at 2:14 am #153419
Debbie, that is wonderful!!So nice to hear you stayed close.
When I read Robin's post, I was wishing that I could send Yolanda to her so she could help take care of her parents like she did mine. She is a wonderful lady….My family will love her forever! She is taking care of a 98 year old lady right now who got married again a few years ago. Gee….there is still hope for me!!! 🙂January 22, 2012 at 2:42 am #153420
Oh I feel for you and dread the day it happens to me – I am an only child to take care of everything. Hold onto you sister real tight, hugs to you!January 22, 2012 at 6:39 am #153416
I'm so sorry that you have to go through all of this. We miss you too Robin!!!!!!January 22, 2012 at 1:26 pm #153413
Robin, know my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family!!! This is a hard time, but you are such a strong person, I know you'll get through it!
Big Hugs!!!January 22, 2012 at 2:51 pm #153421
Oh robin, I am so sorry to hear that your life is so upside down right now. Sounds like you have a plan of attack, so that is good. I hope you can find a nice place and soon!January 22, 2012 at 3:26 pm #153422
Hi Robin, I've missed you hanging around here…and sure do miss your inspiration and creative layouts!!! This is a tough part of all of our lives…ditto on the sentiment about you being a strong lady and having a sibling help is really awesome!!!! Your parents are lucky and I know you will be glad you helped them….Hugs to you….Hope to hear from you again soon!January 22, 2012 at 3:27 pm #153423

BIG HUGSJanuary 22, 2012 at 4:32 pm #153424
Oh Robin, and on top of this you have to move! Geez, don't you hate the Vegas housing market!!!! Well, on a serious note I do live in the same city so if you ever need anything don't hesitate to ask. Even if you want to break away and get some scrapping in feel free to use my scraproom and goodies. Although I'm not sure how relaxing that would be for you because I'd probably be quizzing you about your genius abilities the entire time…LOL! But the offer does stand if you're ever interestedJanuary 23, 2012 at 5:43 pm #153425
Miss you Robin!!! I hope things better better for your soon.

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."January 23, 2012 at 6:13 pm #153426
So sorry that things are so jumbled up for you right now! It is wonderful that you and you sister are going to be able to work it out to share the care of your parents! I hope you find a new place real soon! It's the pits that you have to move on top of everything else!!! Miss you around here! I will keep you in my prayers!
