How Patti wears out shoes when she does not walk has baffled me for years? However, it was time for a shoe quest!
I have never known anyone, male or female, who can get in and out of a shoe store faster than our daughter can. NO ONE can make up his or her mind faster and then begin making up everyone else’s.
Megan breezed Patti through the process and still had time to manipulate us into a pair of boots for her.
The evening began as one of those nights I like to bring Patti home for a visit and feed her nice unhealthy but FUN food that she tells me they do not serve at the care facility. For example tonight was Pizza Hut carry out pizza and soda. … Yet after returning her to her room at the nurses’ station they told me pizza was on the menu for tomorrow night. They serve pizza a couple times a month.
Between pizza and boots, it was my nightto be manipulated! Could I interest anyone in a conspiracy theory?
On the 'dark side' of yin-yang, Patti's physical strength and stamina was in one of those flare lows today and staff needed to use the sling to transfer her in and out of chair and bed. And yes her visit home was somewhat marred by a bowel accident, however fortunately it WAS at home and I have the physical strength to handle her and we have the custom built bathroom to deal with such problems.
"Living with MS" at Patti's level of progression is just always going to be a function of balance between positives and negatives. To be involved you just have to accept that.
