I hope your new year is getting off to a good start. Mine? Well, not so much.
Friendship Retirement Community staff managed somehow to drop me a few days ago and, apparently, the back of my head made contact with the metal sidebar of my bed, since there was a smear of blood there. Fortunately, there was no real damage - just a trip to Memorial Hospital in the middle of the night and another "heart attack" experience for Tracy. X-Rays revealed no damage and I went back to the "comfort" of my own bed shortly thereafter.
Now back to the word apparently: Since I can offer no assistance to the aides as they get me up or lower me back into bed, they use a lift for this undertaking. How do you drop someone from a lift? Apparently, poor training or lack of attention. Or both? Oh, well! Just another day in the life of a resident in this place.
Here's a recent picture. I'm sleeping a lot lately but wide awake for this photo shot. Guess it's the cold weather.
Love to all,
