well, i got a call yesterday that the staff at the nursing home had injured my moms paralyzed foot by running it over with her electric wheel chair. they hurt her pretty bad, i had to let them take her back but i am starting the process of moving her to a very, very nice nursing hom 5 minutes from me. i turned them in to the state and advocaes i called the owner i went there and took notes, and then a crazy nurse called and sai dr gave her pain meds she can ask for every 4 hours....MY MOM CANT TALK! she has global aphasia, i have court ordered legal guardianship, meaning, legally, i am her voice, if i say giver her the meds, legally they are obligated to do it. this nurse had the nerve to tell me she didnt have to do it, i told her she needed to get the file and read that order...it says NO LIMITS....then i told her to give my mom her meds every 4 hrs for the next 48 hrs and we will evaluate then and see if we can back off, not up for discussion! she said she would call the dr, i told her call anyone she wants but if my mom does get her meds every 4 hrs she will be calling a someone to bail her out cause i would charge her with neglect! and if dr has a problem with it then he has my # he can call me...he never called...my mom cant ask for meds. they say we can tell if she is hurting, well, i used to believe that before i got guardianship, i would go see her, she would be crying in pain (paralyzed can be very painful) and i go get them and they say they were just in there 10 minutes ago and she wasnt hurting, WTF! i told them then they would never convince me that 10 minutes before she felt no pain and then 10 minutes later she was crying like a baby in pain, which is why i went and got guardianship, oh, i am mad! more in my journal, lots more...this place is going to have the state and advocates crawling all over them when i am done with them...should have mother moved by tuesday at the latest!

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
