I feel like I've been run ragged here lately. Grandpa is still holding on.
He's had the vent tube out for a few days now, but now the dr.'s are
claiming that he has to have a rate of 96% to get out of the hospital.

I think it would be almost impossible for him to be completely off oxygen,
as he had to have it at home before all this started. The doctors apparently
told my grandpa that he would have to have a trach tube put it. My dad, who
has power of attorney, told them no. (for various reasons I won't go into.)

The hosptial is claiming that he is fully alert and aware and is able to
make decisions for himself. So if he says to put in the trach tube, they
will. Well, he's *not* in his right mind, really. Yesterday evening, he
asked my dad why my grandma hadn't been there all day. She was there that
afternoon, like every afternnoon. He didn't remember. Yeah, he's able to
make his own decisions...Unbelieveable

So, my dad is apparently having a lawyer ready in case the doctors decide
to override the power of attorney. I would too.

So, I haven't slept much, am mentally and physically tired, and just want to
shut down.

I really want to do something beady, but I'm at the point were I just don't
know where to start. I've been thinking about that piece of glass I found. I
didn't even have the mental energy to go through Sooz's list to look for
matching seeds. (I tried, but gave up. Just couldn't do it) So I guess if I
decide to still do the seed thing, I'll find a color that compliments it, or
something. I don't know.

I'm about to run away for awhile-beads in hand. Just disappear and do my own
thing. Can I scream now? LOL.

I feel for you since I am going through the same kind of thing with my dad.
If you grandpa is able to say what he wants he can get what he needs. I hope
things work out for the best. (((Hugs))

No one ever has to "go through" the Links List looking. Use your find
function, and a keyword. Poof! You'll have it in your lap. This is why I
WROTE ALL THOSE DAMN DESCRIPTIONS.

Oops, excuse me......I sometimes wonder why I wrote them if they're not being
used. Hmm, maybe I'll go through the list and remove them.

Sooz,

I used them! And got into way too much trouble.... *L* too many sites

sometimes just fondling your beads will make you feel better. Not even
doing anything with them. I sometimes dump a tube of beads in my hands and
just fondle them. My husband laughed the first time he saw me do it.

Rachel,

I feel for you.

Hold in there... and *do* let yourself go off on a mini-bead vacation or
read a book or something. You need to keep your strength up!

It sounds like in this case your dad has things in hand, so let him
handle this part. You know the parts you are really needed for, like
listening to your grandmother and taking care of her in ways that he
can't possibly do.

I've decided that since some of the pictures online are kind of hard to get
the feel for the color, I'm going to try this...I'm going to take a pic of
the glass and then use it to compare online. That way i can get the feel for
how this monitor diplays colors. Probably not the best way, but it might
work.

And Sooz, I did go by descriptions. I got through a few links and then went
foggy. I guess when I looked at the list, it wasn't the best time to do so.

In regards to grandpa, I got a call tonight from my dad. He had a few people
together to come up with a "family decision" of what to do with him. We all
came to the same conclusion, which wasn't helpful, but it's been decided
that he will get the trach tube, and that will be all. If that doesn't work,
then nothing more will be done. He has officially been diagnosed with end
stage lung disease.

So, that's where that stands. A fair decision, since no one could come up
with a definite one and he's not coherent enough half the time to make his
own decision about it.

Good decision style, and good decision.

And now, it's time to talk to the hospice people. Don't wait until all they
can do is help him die. Start talking about it now, so you can work out how
he can best use his time remaining.

Hugs,

Tina
