A week of weeks, these last 4 days have been..... Answered
I hope I am not coming off lately as just complaining about life in general, but just letting those who know me well enough to want to know, how things are going.
This has just been ONE OF THOSE WEEKS (and it isn't over yet ! ).
Monday and Tues, I had to help my wife prep for cataract surgery (two days off, but not really much of a "vacation"), Wed. she still needed assistance in picking things up off the floor when she'd drop them....and today, I had to go in and meet my Mom at the Ear doctor (she's been around 60% deaf since early childhood, but never wanted to learn ASL).
They cleaned out her ears, checked the hearing aid, and put fresh batteries in it.....then since none of that helped, they checked her hearing.
A 120 db beep was inaudible to her. And, being quite advanced in age, and slowly slipping into senility, she is unable to accept this "new" condition. It is very disheartening to not be able to help or do anything at all to help.
I know this is not really a "social" arena, and is more geared towards DIY then just airing greivences, but I thought I would share this one thing and hope I didn't irritate too many of you all out there.
Thanks for reading....
