SUITS AND TIES

DOGABLY PAWFECT GUYS WITH DOGS IN BED

If you'd like to be a reader/blogger of the week, email me you and your doggy's/doggies pic.

UPDATE: MOM IS HOME

It was a long drawn out day but mom finally made it home at 5:30 pm.

The hospice supplies of a bed, bipapp breathing machine, oxygen compressor and lists of many more things didn't arrive until 3pm. We had expected them between 8am and noon.

The hospice nurse is very nice and comforting. My sister-in-law (a retired nurse) is living with us for the foreseeable future.The transition went well but I'm scared. Until this time, mom was completely self sufficient - able to get about the house, answer nature's call, bathe, eat and communicate. I acted as her personal assistant and she treated me better than any celebrity would. And although the possibility of her passing was very real, it would be a surprise/shock.

Now it is inevitable and myself and my family have a greater responsibility then we did. We have to take care of her physical needs, her breathing needs, her medicine needs to be ground up and put into her food (she had been on a feeding tube for the past 3 weeks and IV fluids) and provide her fluids.

I don't know about anyone else, but I didn't realize until tonight that there will be no break or rest now in taking care of mom. True, we had been taking turns spending the night with her in the hospital but we had the HOSPITAL as our support system. So we at least had a few hours a day to shift the stress off our backs.

Mom told me tonight, being home and using different breathing assist equipment enable her to speak and be understood!!!!!, that she wants to exercise! She is so tough. Not afraid but tough and not ready to go. She's not finished yet.

We're not the type of family that talks. With all the time I've spent with my mom, there have been no trips down memory lane, no righting wrongs, no using what time is left to heal wounds, say things you've always wanted to say. Maybe we didn't need to. I'm not sitting on anything, I don't have questions or unresolved issues (at least any I either want to deal with or am aware of), I just do what I do. It's not hard for me but others are quite impressed. I never could take a compliment.

I'm exhausted but the 3-4 Bub Platinums I had tonight (I'm not a lover of beer but these I'd drink again) seemed to have relaxed me a bit - enough to write this. When I reread this tomorrow, we'll see how well I did. I'm rambling. Thanks for being there - it really means so much. Not all of us are parents (or lucky enough to have doggies) but we are all children.

one hour at a time
one day at a time
one life in a life time

I don't think I've written it but I do love my mom. I respect her. I like her. I'm starting to realize how I'll miss her. I'm seeing the holes in my future life. I love my mom.

WET MEN

TMI ANSWERS:: SOPHIE'S CHOICE

SOPHIE'S CHOICE
**I really thought this one was one of my toughest and more inspired TMI's.

1. Save your daughter or son or all three of you will die?
I don't have kids but I'm not sure I'd be able to live knowing that I had not tried to save both and that I had chosen one so the other could live. What a burden for the surviving child to carry. 
2. Your arm or your leg?
No question, my leg. In addition to the amazing advances they've made in prosthesis's for legs, I think life would be easier with both arms and hands. The thought of never pleasing a man by pinching his nip while massaging his prostate or any number of combinations, is unmanageable.
3. Sight, hearing or speech?
Keep my sight, no question. Hearing or speech is tougher. I think I'd keep hearing. I'd miss music and the sounds of nature. I think it's safer to have your hearing and it's easier to communicate with people when you can't  speak then when you can't hear. I've seen this with my Mom when her cancer paralyzed one of her vocal cords and made it very hard to communicate or use the phone but she had few problems then if she couldn't hear/
4. Taste or to physically feel anything (pleasure, pain, touch)?
I thought of this one based on one of the characters in the SyFy series, Haven. The main hunk was unable to feel another's touch. This is also a real and rare genetic condition. I would rather not be able to taste then not feel the touch of another. How could you ever reach orgasm? 
5. On your smart phone: text, data or call?
Text. Although I'm a late convert to texting, there are times when you must have a phone and I like having access to the web and email. And email could be a slow substitute for texting.
6. Love of your life but life on welfare or no love and live in the top 40%?
No love. I've spent most of my life with no love and closer to welfare then the top 40% and I'm sure Miss Truvy, Tramp and I could be very happy living with a top 40% income.
7. Who do you save: Kennedy, King or Milk?
Is there a bad choice here? I think the assassination of Kennedy did more harm to the country then just setting back civil rights. Maybe if he hadn't been killed, King and Milk wouldn't have been either and maybe have been able to do even greater work. I'd dave Kennedy, despite what Stephen King wrote in 11/23/63.
8. You can only cure one: One kind of Cancer, AIDS or Heart Disease?
AIDS. It's not just a gay disease and had devastated two generations across the world. The loss of these generations is incalculable and will be felts for decades. In many ways it set back LGBT rights but in others I think it has advanced them.
9. Read only one: magazine, newspaper or books?
I forgot to include that in this question, there is no internet. If I had remembered that my answer would have been Newspapers. I don't read magazines too often and as much as I enjoy and would miss books, Newspapers would provide the most complete combination of information, entertainment (hello - comics!) and yes, even sports. However, since the internet is in play then my answer is clearly Books. Books allow you to escape, to dream and expands your mind like no other medium.

BONUS
Sex of any kind (bad to great to wilder to jo) or the internet?

UPDATE: MOM

"I want to go home. I want to die."

She finally said it. I've been ready, maybe even hoping but my father and especially my sister weren't ready. They are now and we all feel like a great weight has been lifted.

We are finalizing arrangements with hospice to bring mom home probably tomorrow, maybe Saturday. Today I have to prepare our den. It's what mom wants. I had my brother-in-law and nephew move out the furniture last night and began washing the curtains (they needed it anyway). Today I'm doing a thorough cleaning including shampooing the carpet (it needed it anyway).

Thanks for being there.
