My mother is now in hospice care and living with my niece and sister. Hospice comes in 5 days a week, a team of them to assist with specific care. Her life expectancy is delicate at this time.
Mom and I shared certain expenses, now I will have them…however, it is necessary for me to drop cable TV, internet, and my T Mobile phone service. I signed up for a free phone and service which is a government program for low income people, and at least I will have a phone to use for emergencies. I will begin using that one on a regular basis at the end of the month. Cable and internet will go off before the end of the month. I will be able to use the WiFi in the club house to pop in from time to time with FB. I will not use public internet services to pay bills.
Monday I was on the phone all day contacting all of my credit cards for paper bills. I haven’t seen one of those in years! Snail mail or a telephone call to each for payment for some time.
Once my cards are down to zero, I can then consider a provider for cable and internet. At this time there is no room in my budget period. In a couple of months I will be applying for food stamps, I will need them then.
Family members will be collecting moms television set, the piece of furniture it sets on, and many other items that go to others.
Many changes are coming, however I am keeping positive about them and not going to put any effort into worry or what will I do without the conveniences I have enjoyed since internet was born.
I am going to put all efforts into taking care of myself, read books, sew, play my guitar and mandolin, participate with neighbors and friends when events are held in our club house. Things that were difficult to get started with, complete, and no time for.
I want you to know that I am doing well with my treatments, a full body scan is still pending authorization. I do have a lot of bruising from IV’s, but to be expected…I refused a port. I still have hair, however it has not grown at all. Of course that could all change, one never knows really.
I haven’t felt like posting lately with everything going on within the family, but will as I can.
I hope each of you are well and fine, and for those with treatments like me…doing well.
Happy Mother’s Day
