Can't believe this has been such a busy week.  We bought new computers so I could start from scratch.  Still have not connected them and I almost dread having to do all those passwords again.  After the new purchase, our Tech explained a way for Karl (Hubby) to possibly jump start the old, crashed HD.  Amazingly it worked.  Now I have all my files available to me again and won't have to guess about the user names & passwords.  What a blessing that one is!!!Mom has been kinda quiet this week.  I think her day Tuesday tired her out a whole lot.  But, she called Friday around 5 PM to tell me that she has broken her front tooth.  Since there was no one we could call, I told her that we could go to the dental clinic on Monday and have it pulled.  She then said, no I want all 4 of them out.  Guess that means we have to wait till Tuesday because that many extractions will require permission from her cardiologist.  About 3 years ago they deemed her "a poor risk for surgery" and since have said she can't have any.  Now I am scared about this "4 tooth" extraction.Today Mom called @ 9 AM and asked if I could get her a refill on her Nitro.  She said that she had had some chest pain and had found her nitro bottle empty.  So, she got up and took 3 vitamin E capsules.  She says that it helped.  But when I got her prescription over to her later, she said she had spent the whole day in bed because she was so tired.  She said the pain in her chest spread through her whole body.  I asked her why she had not used her LifeLine button and called for help.  Her reply is that she "just wants God to take her home."  But she did promise me that if the nitro does not help the next time, she will push the darn button and let them tell her what is wrong.  She has so many problems (3 with her heart alone) that I can understand how she feels.  We are really at a scary state that could last 3 years or more.  Can't say I look forward to either end of this - the walking it slowly, nor the final stage.  I guess everyone knows what I am saying.  Until the final stage she will just suffer and still insist on being alone with her privacy.  :-(We did have some other excitement today.  Our neighbor's pregnant goat got outside the fence and was hanging out with our chickens in the back yard.  It was really funny as she just wandered around eating the little bit of grass that is left.  When she saw hubby heading up the hill, she let out a couple "bleets" and headed back to her hole in the fence.  He took some wire and mended the hole for the neighbor who was at work.  I love living in this rural community.  Our Emu & chickens, the neighbor's goats, chickens & ducks and another neighbor's alpaca.  We have so much fun with them all and when we are down, there is always an animal to hug and give us some love.
