PostHeaderIcon Grandpa News and P365 Photos

To say it's been a busy week would be an understatement. My Grandfather had some sort of mental breakdown. Medical terminoloy..."altered mental status". He was getting very hard to deal with this past couple of weeks and I had to send my daughter to my ex's to stay until I could figure out what was going on with him. Instead of things calming down with him, his behavior became more erratic and hallucinations more frequent (he was already taking meds for this). The MD he was seeing locally REFUSED to give any help and we ended up taking him to and ER that was not in this town to get him some psychiatric help. Good news is that he is now in a Geriatric Psych Unit getting evaulated and getting his meds sorted. Unfortunately he cannot come back to live with me. I just don't have enough help and it has put a tremendous strain on my husband and daughter and it's just not fair to them. We have already have a Nursing Home picked out for him that has the staff with the proper training and facilities for his special needs. And the good thing is that it is only about 35 minutes from our home.
It's been a beautiful day today. Hubby mowed the yard while I just vegged out in the recliner with the lappy and the tv remote. I have a couple of LO's in progress but can't seem to get into the groove to finish them and I have been too lazy to go grab the rest of my P365 photos off my camera for this you only get to see through Day 70.
Day 68 pays homage to my hubby's work boots. W/O them he would have a hard time taking care of us.

Day 69
It was a beautiful day and it gave me a chance to play with the manual settings on my camera.
Day 70
Me and my Mama were coming home from leaving my Grandfather at the hospitol and saw this weird tornado type cloud. It was just a weird rain cloud. She took it for me since I was driving.

That's it for now...I really gotta catch up at least on my P365 LO's..esp since I have some really nice P365 Templates I wanna use.
Thanx for peeking in!

Hope things start settling down & smoothing out for you & your family. Taking care of loved ones, especially when they are aging can be so difficult & exhausting.

That rain cloud photo is gorgeous!

Hi, Just visiting from over at J*S. I love your POTD photos. I'm going to keep some in mind for ideas since I'm doing the POTD as well. I like how you've taped them with the Day handwritten on the side.
They look great!

About Me

My Photo
Balinda (RebelChick)
Just an everyday girl trying to find my way in the world to live life fiercely and passionately. I was a signature tagger for several years but art journaling has replaced that passion and it feeds my soul creativiely and spiritually. I also homeschool my DD, scrapbook, play around in photography, spoil my cats and drive my hubby insane on a daily basis. My faith in the Lord helps me juggle all these blessings. I keep this blog because it makes me happy. Sometimes I blog a lot and other times it collects a little dust. Thanks for visiting and being my friend.♥
