#JusJoJan ~ 1/18/22

Thanks Linda for hosting and thanks JoAnna for the prompt.

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 18th, 2022, is “cycle.” Use the word “cycle” any way you’d like. Have fun!

When I read the prompt rather quickly I saw circle and flashed immediately to the Lion King. Not sure if I thought I was Simba or the lil ambassador monkey holding Simba up? Guess I was the monkey because as I did my stretches this morning, I pretended I was showing off a lion cub.

Hey whatever floats your boat. I needed both the stretching and the smile. Of course cycles go in circles, which means I’m not too far off the beaten path. Right now the fam is in a downward slump part of the cycle … life cycle that is with MoMo needing assisted living care. Things are coming together ever so slowly but we’re closer to relief today than yesterday or the day before that and so on and so forth.

The nurse assessment team will accept her and she’ll get her needed care. They told me afterwards that she is a risk of fall right now and if it was their mother, they would toss the offending pain pills. They were prescribed at the ER and then the spine doctor just renewed them. Her PCP is out of the loop until today when we filled him in. As I may have mentioned, she routinely reacts to medications. This particular reaction is strikingly like dementia.

PoPo wanted her in there today but we can’t do anything without more paperwork. And payment of course. Pray she stays well between now and Monday, her anticipated move in date.

The cycle of life ….

As always, more to come.

  1. Love, hugs, and prayers to all of you Jill. Medication is so difficult and with A reacting with B, reacting with C etc we can never be sure just what is helping and what is making things worse, especially when the recipient cannot articulate how they feel or what they want.
