            Greetings Lodge peeps. I can't believe it's the week leading up to Memorial Day Weekend. We had mid-summer weather here over the weekend.

            So, my aunt that lives with my mom has been quickly declining the past couple of months. She pretty much only drinks wine, and while part of me is like "the woman is almost 89, she doesn't drive, etc." it got to a point where her weight dropped considerably and she was severely dehydrated. She never had any appetite and refused to drink water. Last Monday she called my cousin to say she wasn't feeling well and wanted to go the hospital. After four days of hydrating her, they were finally able to do a CT scan and noticed she has masses on her liver. Given her age and physical condition, they aren't treating her and the doctors told my cousin she has 6 weeks to 6 months to live. They discharged her to a rehab while waiting for a bed to open up at a nursing home. She isn't feeling any pain but is at a point where she can't comprehend what's wrong with her.

            I took my mom to see her both days this weekend. I'm a little nervous as the woman at the front desk told me there are some patients with COVID in the building. I am assuming they are restricted to their rooms, but still. I made sure we didn't stay more than 10-15 minutes. The rehab is actually located closer to me so my mom will not be able to go see her on a regular basis. Which, given the COVID situation, I'm glad. That said, I feel bad for my mom. This is her sister. My cousin wanted her close to her which is good, yet she's kind of odd, hasn't questions, doesn't really drive much so I'm not sure how much she will be able to see her.

            My brother, SIL and I talked yesterday about my mom and how we think she will be now living on her own. After my dad died, my younger brother was here for a bit and was up there regularly then recovered at her place after my ankle surgery for six weeks. She wasn't alone for much time and my aunt moved in that Labor Day. I think she should be fine, and quite honestly, with the stress of having to take care of her sister every day now pretty much gone, it gives her a bit of freedom to do some other stuff. Like spend the weekend with me, which she did.

            It's hard watching family members get old.
            Sorry to hear this. It is tough. I have the upper generation telling me I don't know what it is like to get old. I beg to differ. My FIL was hospitalized a couple of weeks ago= the hospitalist provided horrifically bad care- he ended up being discharged with no plan, he still has not had problem addressed even tho they all agree what should happen (the cardiologist came right out and told him they had no excuse for not doing what was needed on the admission). and they are dicking around/delaying to the point it is negligent. Mum les is mum les- call at 5:30 this AM (replay stories from past), uncle les is having medical problems. Auntie les is starting to slip. Trying to juggle that while trying to juggle issues with the house, keep up with multiple other stuff that I am supposed to be managing. ::Head desk::

                  Today I learned that if you order from the taco truck in spanish, you get a spicier version. I swear this burrito pollo es mas picante que the chicken burrito.

                      • Good morning Lodge.

                        I got a primo parking spot at work today. All of production has the day off. They work 4 day 10 hour shifts, so they've all already put in 40 hours for the week, but we almost always have OT on Fridays, and usually shipping/receiving is here. Today, just the office staff, and not so many of us. Looking forward to a long weekend. My company is giving us Monday and Tuesday for Memorial Day holiday. I think Tuesday was added this year to give us the same number of holidays for they year when Xmas and New Years fall on the weekend.
