Not a lot to write about because I did nothing today.
I am fending off my second cold in three weeks. The worst part is that it makes me impatient. Mrs ERJ attributes it to not being able to hear as well.
It is worth noting that hearing loss is correlated with memory loss and dementia. I can tell that I retreat from the present when my hearing is impaired. I also am quicker to tear, slash and rend...probably as a way of defending a larger space bubble.
Some of the neuroscientist attribute the loss of mental function to the loss of input. A motor that is not spun-up every few years tends to seize.
It could be said that music can bring memory Bach.
One of my mom's struggles is due to osteoporosis. Her pelvis is shot and it hurts to walk.
|The magazine rack is a nice touch. We have to take measurements to ensure the unit will fit in the bathroom, along with my mom's walker.|
Going to the can is a chore and I believe there are all kinds of power lift seats and toileting assists that can help. We just have to sort our way through the choices.
|Pops up just like a toaster!|
Mom does not want to jump right to the power lift units. Mom has a recliner that has the launch feature and she loves it. I guess it would mean that she has to admit that she is no longer middle-age.
|I think I saw something like this in a James Bond movie. BTW, she is not my mother.|
This has been quite an education.
If any of my readers have any experience or strong opinions, I would love to hear them.
