I just wanted to write a quick entry to let everyone know why we haven't been updating more.
About a week ago Grandma fell and broke her ankle. She then stayed at my mom's house while we waited and waited for the swelling to go down. Finally the doctor decided that due to her age, they wouldn't risk surgery and would just try to align the bone as best they could and then put a cast on it. She's back home now.
There has been some talk about putting Grandma in a nursing facility for 3 weeks while we wait for the bone to heal enough for her to be able to walk a little safely. Right now due to her alzheimers she forgets that she has a broken bone and shouldn't be walking on it. Several times I've woken up in the middle of the night to find her up and walking to the bathroom. She can't remember that she isn't suppose to do this. There will be a home nurse person coming out sometime this week, and then we will decide what is best for grandma. I had hoped she would stay here and not need to go to a facility, but I am unable to be awake 24hrs a day to prevent her from walking on that broken ankle. Its not something I want to have happen, but on the other hand, if its necessary for her to be in a safe enviroment...then that is what is best in the long run.
On the pet home front, Gunner is settling in and starting to be naughty at times. This morning I woke up to find he had gotten my brand new shoes and chewed off one of the shoelaces. I think its in retaliating to him no longer being allowed to sleep in my room. See, I have the kitty boxes in my bedroom and someone here is a disgusting doggie and decided to repeatedly "investigate" the contents of the boxes.
ewww! So, he can't go in the bedroom anymore and I think he gets restless being alone during the night. I'm thinking he might have to get a bed in the garage if he continues to destroy things when I'm sleeping. For now I've put my shoes in the closet instead of next to the door.
