The sun is peaking...from the clouds...peaking...

After 3 dismal days of pictureless doom and gloom.
It gratefully looks like the sun will rise to shine another day in the Muldoon household. 
Tonight when I heard the man giving out to my sister as how the medication that kept him from choking to death last night...gave him hallucinations, I said to myself...that man is going to live!!!!
And, he was complaining about happy hallucinations....
I could have used some of those last night!!!
The caregivers do not like the awesome polyester polka dot sheets that I bought to comfort my dear man.
I explain that this is the new and newly popular kind of polyester that helps one slide in the bed but does not draw.....They do not agree..
 I have given in...no more flannel pillowcases for his feet either...they are hot....temperature wise, that is...
Last week before I was smacked by asthmatic bronchitis,
 I made some cotton woodwind pillowcases for him. 
 I also ordered one yellow hospital bed sheet 100% million count cotton for his bed.
Because I am a saint and because they would not give me the free shipping as I told you before...
.I just had to throw in a book.  They begged me.
It all arrived today as the sun started shining on Truesdale once more.

JL...just as I am munching on some healthy, unfamiliar chocolate like substance delivered today,
 I am called into his room.
He feels like throwing up.  I have just called the Hospice nurse to come out..
Good thing that I said..peaking...

Those woodwind pillows will be like music under Mr's head. At least the new sheet will be a lovely yellow and not just standard white. Do you like your new book?

I'm always so grateful for any rays of sunshine shining into your household. I'm sure Mr. O'Q's head feels cradled with love by the woodwinds.
Enjoy your new book.

Your new book looks very colourful, hope the yellow sheets aid the 'turning'. Do you have an air mattress for helping to keep bed sores away? I found the noise annoying but it did provide help for poor mum when she couldn't move herself.

Thank you for visiting my blog and your sweet comment... it's a club I never wanted to join (as I tell the widows at Church who welcome me with open arms) as I'm only 45 and we were married for less than three years... but it can't be changed. I'm adding you to my blog reader. Also, I love your message to your grandmother in your "about me"; such a good reminder that creating is indeed therapy and life-saving at that!

Sweetheart, I hope things are OK. I worry when we don't hear anything. I know blogging is very low on your to-do list, but if you have an opportunity, I am eager to know how all of you are doing.
