Mom is in the whispering mode again. Being partially deaf, it drives me nuts because I can't hear her and she won't speak up so I end ignoring her because I can't hear her. She just doesn't get it anymore. She is afraid people will over hear what she is saying. Like anyone, outside of me, cares? She has always been a freak over this issue, but is worse now that she is older. She does this too me quite frequently and I am getting a bit angry at it. I can't hear her. Plain and simple, I am partially deaf and whispering or talking so soft that I can't hear makes my head hurt worse. I expect that when I remind her that I am deaf, for her to speak up, does she? No, she does it again, then I get mad and speak harshly, which isn't so good. I need prayers for patience. I just am running out right now with all these issues. Other than these two she really is easy. I know what she needs help with and I help her. She doesn't get mean, even when I am yelling or speaking harshly, she does what I ask (except for the 2 issues) she goes to bed easy now. So I don't have a lot of room to complain. She has even stopped wandering around the house. I still gate her upstairs, in case, because I certainly don't need her wandering outside again. Been there, done that, not happening again.
It is so beautiful outside. I don't even need a coat on, it is close to 80 degrees. How heavenly. Even Mom was getting a bit warm inside Walmart and walking in and out of it. I am putting on her light jacket when we leave for my friend's house. Tomorrow is supposed to be wet and a bit colder, but spring, at last is here.
We have a sub division meeting tonight. I enjoy them a lot. We see our neighbors, talk about what needs to be done and have a good old time. We will be in bed as soon as we get home though because Mom gets tired there, especially with her not eating enough. I don't expect her to get fat or anything, just gain a few pounds so that she weighs at least 100 pounds, that is what the doctors want.
Pain is normal for the day. I expect it to be a bit worse tomorrow because of the rain, but today is alright, it is doable. Okay, a day without pain would be the best, but that isn't going to happen until there is a cure. So let's hope there is a cure someday in the future!
Have a good afternoon and evening!
