Good SD61 News
Everybody has heard about my dysfunctional SD61 who drives me nuts. She's disabled and we help support her. Well, today, she called and I got some good news. I'm allowing for her lying, manipulation and misunderstanding but.....
SD61 says she came clean with her doctor about her confusion, driving problems and comprehension issues and he has recommended that she have some caregiver assistance. Noway2b had told me about a program where caregivers can be hired, they can even be family members, in this case, her daughter, C. The doctor recommended SD61 for that service and it would be a Godsend. C would come 3 days a week for 4 hours each day to take her to doctor appointments, grocery shop, make sure she eats, etc.
SD61 also talked rationally about DH's declining ability to help her. This was such a relief from her recent meltdowns. I stayed on the phone with her for longer than usual, I wanted to give her more attention when she was acting rationally.
DH spoke with her later and heard about another program where she's applied for housing. I would so love to get her off my back! Lol. Im trying not to get too excited, she invariably gets things wrong and indulges in wishful thinking. But it's a Thanksgiving blessing today and I'm thankful for the illusion, if nothing else.
