Notes from eldercare
Yesterday was and eldercare day.
We took them to the dentists for their six-month teeth cleaning.
It is a major expedition to exit the house, get loaded into the car, drive across town, blah, blah, blah.
I read some main-stream media magazines while waiting. It was a brand that used to be considered hard-core news. Lots of hand-wringing about the state of journalism in the magazine. Not the quality of the writing and editing, rather the hand-wringing was about the state of advertising revenues. Later in that issue I learned President Trump has a new first name, "race-baiter". Those "journalists" need to look in the mirror. That is considered editorializing and would not even be allowed in a high school newspaper back-in-the-day.
Everybody was gassed afterward.
We need to figure out how mom can brush her teeth without having to stand at the bathroom sink. It is a small thing but it caught up with mom.
The other thing is that Dad has been putting on weight with is a good thing. One of the things that has been a great help in that regard is to have Reese Cups in a bowl beside his recliner. That caught up with him as well.
So mom and dad have another appointment with the dentists.
