Maybe at last
The neighbor that George and I had to rescue several times was so argumentive and ornery to the people in the rest home where she had been for the last almost a year and kept at her son to let me go home so unfortunately he did. She has a woman come in daily to help her with breakfast and dinner, she gets meals on wheels each noon. Her son was adamant about her calling us all the time if something went wrong, he said "mom, they are older than you". So, I'm of the call list if she pokes the lifeline button but when I went over to see her last week the house looked clean but there was a strong smell of urine. We didn't know this but apparently she fell the other night and the ambulance had to come for her, no apparent injury so she is back in the house. George called her and said he would like to borrow some rhubarb from her huge patch, never touched. She said sure but then told him she wished Johnny would come home from the store she needed him to go again. Johnny has been dead for 7 years. I called her son in a nearby town and he came and talked to her then came over to our house. He said "mom is really confused and I have talked her into selling her car and selling the house. She seems agreeable" and he is going to try to get her in another care home. She can really afford good care. We are so afraid that she will injure herself badly when left alone at night Guess I wasn't thinking in paragraphs so there aren't any in the above.
