Subject: RE: Feb 2012 - Exercise by Leaping Over Clutter
Well, no nap happened here. I ended up on the phone with our state representative and a few other agencies regarding policies and guidelines for the Family Caregivers Support Act, HS 210 to see what kinds of programs my nana will qualify for when discharged from the nursing home. I got a lot of information after wading through some people who really have no idea what their job is. Next step is to see what results come in from neurology and such.

It's a process that my mom and aunt had no idea even existed. It feels really good to have the *You did good* stamp of approval from them both. YAY.

I thought the baby was on the track to being well but he is uber clingy tonight, won't eat...not even ice cream. He did drink a bottle but that's not his usual MO. His temperature has gone up as well so now I will be a slave to the video monitor all night watching for seizures.

I am sick myself. This will pass. It will all pass.

In the meantime, if any of you have a cold with a constantly running nose, I'd like to share that Kleenex brand tissue has a pop up box of tissues called Cool Touch...a little pricey but ohhhhh's like a silky kiss on my very raw, red nose. Well worth the extra cash.

I have also joined the Y but will not start there officially until my cold is gone. Kinda hard to get your body rockin' when you can't breathe, I don't want anyone else to catch my bug.
