My DIL has not been handling this well, and so today when I went over after 2. We talked a bit, I told her what I was trying to get lined up... basically, getting their ducks all in a row so when my son, who pleads guilty, does his time, she will be all organized as to house payments, child care, mental health issues, etc. I was very concerned about her yesterday as she seemed very close to disappearing down the rabbit hole prior to and during the hearing. So, knowing what is probably coming, I suggested we call her doctor and see if we could get her on some sort of anti Anxiety medicine she can take while nursing that won't affect the baby. We called to see if she could get in, but couldn't get there by the time they would close up shop, and her doctor suggested we take her to the emergency room. She agreed, so 4 hours later, we emerged with a prescription in hand and and went to go fill it so maybe she can sleep tonight. ( and another prescription on hand if this doesn't work for her...)and a list of 3 female and 1 male psychologists covered by her insurance, to see if she can get an appointment next week and get started on dealing with the fallout and prepping for the 'what probably is to come' part of this journey. Now to talk to the Parole officer about my son and see that he gets his mental needs taken care of.....I may be camping out at their place... literally... I suggested that between the 4 of us grandparents we could rotate and get them 2 nights a week of all night sleep while the grandparents do baby duty. They were both receptive to this idea so now it's getting the other 2 grandparents on board or 2 other volunteers. I really think sleep deprivation had a lot to do with this whole thing. I feel bad I didn't pick up that son wasn't doing well. DIL was immersed in baby William and his things and didn't notice either. Onward and upward... after I crash for a few hours...gotta remember to take care of me too.

Steve, the right eye is doing much better than the left eye. Looks like Texas is in our future if the MH gets in and out of the shop in good order (roof sealing).

Looks like you and Annie are once again enjoying the rainbow. Woot Woot.

Thanx Dennis for the words of encouragement concerning my sister. It's a tough situation for sure. Her future quality of life is not looking good right now. Looks like more of the completely bedridden routine while being fed through a tube. Geesh.

It's another day of seeing things, but this time it will be my old friend Al and I. Annie will stay behind and chill. When we get back, Al and his wife Maria and Annie and I will go out to dinner here in Santa Fe.

Steve,

OHMMMMS continue, for sure. It sounds like the most important issue is encouraging your sister's mental health to be positive. Perhaps a gift of things she can do in bed such as books, movies, crafts, etc. If she enjoys company maybe call one of her friends asking for help getting regular visits set up.

As to tube feeding -- I had foster kids with tubes. Unless she is a real foodie, tube feeding is great. In a matter of a few minutes her meals are prepared, eaten and no dishes to wash.

Great news on your eye surgery!

R U an RV Mutant too?

Not even a ponder, STMs. Nope. A gloat!
A camper came back from Maine with 3 dozen lobstahs!
1 to 1.5 pounds each. An outrageous 6 bucks per.
