I love the success story today. Its great to read how changing to a primal diet improves health issues and quality of life. That is my story - primal eating keeps the fibro at bay and I can live my life!
Mom shopping today went okay. She didn't need a lot even though she hadn't been shopping in a month. He cupboards were well stocked! She said she wants to look into moving to another apartment - there is only one option for her income level in her town, and my sister says she doesn't want mom there cuz it isn't safe. Sister is with her now discussing options for her future. Sister works at the Retirement Village and knows what to do to get mom on Medicaid so she can get on the wait list to move into that facility. I'm waiting to find out what they decided. If she can't get into the Village she will eventually have to come live with us. Our house is the only one that will be right for her needs. I'm not ready to take in my mother.
Not sure how that would look for me............ would I need to quit my job at the doc office? Or will I be able to continue since its just p/t. Its not like she needs constant care........ so I wouldn't need to be here 24/7. I could actually work all 5 days since I wouldn't be going to take care of her on fridays. That would be a plus. Our house has space that would be her bedroom and living area - and there is a full bath (although in need of some repair) on the main floor as well. I suppose I have to accept the fact that she will be living with us if we cannot find another option. Its not like I haven't been thinking of this for a long time - its just that my son moved out only a month ago - and I'm really enjoying the freedom!
Well........... whatever happens it won't be for at least 6 months or a year. Mom's able to stay where she is for a while longer. I need to stop worrying about it.
I've felt a bit bloated today. I had eggs for lunch, then CCC's and some almonds. I have decided to fast until breakfast tomorrow. Total calories today: 1026 macros 84/12/4 --- perfect - although a bit shy on calories. I'll drink lots of water and have a big mug of tea later. Hubby will finish up the killer curry I made last night! HAWT!!!!! but REALLY yummy. I left out the chili powder and didn't get sick!
