Yorkie remember I mentioned picking up a quilt at the thrift store......that was in 'my' colors? Here's a shot of it and the framed embroidered silk square from China.

I absolutely LOVE this quilt. It's at least a double. Would really like to make it into a wall hanging (a whole wall that is) but omg it's so heavy!




Framed embroidery ..... not old, old but very pretty and just one of those things I gravitate to.





Quilt - $6
Framed patch - $2

Have I mentioned I LOVE LOVE LOVE that store?? :lol:

My best friend and I were finally getting together today.....only get to see each other maybe once, twice a year. Friends for 50 years we're closer than sisters, been through a lot with and for each other. An hour after talking to her to make our plans she calls me from her cell while her husband is driving her back to her parents home where she has spent the last 6 years looking after first both of them, now just her dad since mom entered a nursing home with advanced Alzheimers.

Today, with all the snow they got up there, her 89 year old father went out and got the tractor out to plow ....... somehow ended up with it in the front yard where there really hadn't been much build up of snow. It rolled into the ditch, crushing him beneath it.......where his son found him shortly afterwards.

I've never heard such pain in my friend's voice, she has always been the strong one, the one to help others. As much as it hurt to hear that the father of my 'other family' had passed, what I heard in her voice tore me apart. She came back home to be with her daughter after the birth of her grandson, but I know she's blaming herself for not being with her dad to watch over him.

I so need to be by her side right now, but with two away at work all this week and a third gone this weekend there is no one to cover my shifts. Right now all I can do is message and call..........and send long distance hugs.

Thanks so much Yorkie. Feeling just so helpless to do anything for her......the one time she so needs it.

And what's going to be even harder on her, tomorrow she is going to see her mom and break the news.

Just three weeks ago she had to tell her that her uncle (mom's brother) passed away. Her mom took it terribly hard.....but with the Alzheimer's she quickly forgot. Over the course of just that one visit she had the 'break the news' three more times and each time she did, it was as if mom was hearing it for the first time.

I can't even imagine what she will go through tomorrow. Thank heaven her hubby will be going with her this time, both for support and to drive her back to the house after what will be a hellish visit. She is also going to call ahead to the nursing home to make sure there is an RN on hand to be with them in case things take a turn for the worse.


(((HUGS))) to my more than sister

I often wonder Rottn,rather it is wise to tell the alzhiemers patient what has happened or not,

Like you said they forget it very soon and is there really a need to keep telling them?
I had a patient many years ago that suffered from alzheimers,she used to ask about her hubby all the time,I told her once that he had passed and it nearly broke her heart,after that I just reassured her that he would be there soonm,seemed to work better for her and for me.

We each have to handle it in our own way and what we feel is best for others. I know you will stay strong for your friend Rottn

I'm hoping too that she only tells her once. He has never been a 'devoted' husband, hasn't felt the need to visit her more than once a week even though it's about a 10 minute drive and had no intention of retiring to the same home if /when the time came........he was going to the DVA home 1/2 hr in the other direction. If it were myself I 'might' tell her the once, but after that would likely say he'd been in but you were sleeping or similar. Maybe after the response to her brother's passing it will help guide my friend how better to handle it this time.

However it goes, I pray it doesn't add to her pain right now. She is, of the seven siblings, the only one to take on the care of her parents. She has spent 6 (almost 7) years away from her home and family on a full time basis out of love and loyalty. It's just who she is.

I am sorry she has this to do,but if she is a friend of yours I know she will do it in the best possible way.

It is extremely hard to not tell someone that you love that their spouse has passed,even more difficult I am sure when you know that she won't remember it in 10 minutes.

Your friend has a daunting task in front of her
