A Beautiful Boston Landmark

October 21, 2010

I haven't a clue what the weather is supposed to be today. It's been starting out rather cool and gray in the early mornings, and then during the day hours a bit of sun pokes through the clouds. Looking out my window, I can see that my car is all wet so it must have done a bit of sprinkling during the night. The warm weather is definitely over.
*
It's been a busy night here. Between keeping an eye on Moo, and keeping up with his pain meds, and in between trying to catch a wink or two. For some reason, the winks just wouldn't come. Maybe sometime today I can catch a nap. I have to work out some schedules here so that I can go to work sometimes.
*
I feel so bad for Moo. All his life, my brother has been a strong, very active and hard working person. This stage of the disease has come on so fast, and it hurts to see him struggling so hard just to sit up or turn over on his bed. It just doesn't seem fair. I know, I know. No one ever said life was a picnic.
*
Today we will meet the home health aide that will be coming in Monday through Friday for an hour or so. She will be helping Moo with bathing and dressing, and hopefully help him to eat a bit of lunch. We will have to wait and see how this works out. I think I would almost rather have someone sit with him through the night on at least one of the nights that I am supposed to work. I will have to talk to his nurse to see what can be done.

Today, I have a couple of cool photos to share. There were a lot of pigeons by the hospital and I tried to get a few photos. One pigeon in particular had such pretty coloring that it stood out from all the others. Have a look. Isn't this one a beauty?

I shot this next photo through the side car window over Eddie's arm. This is our famous National Grid tank. Snowy, when you are traveling on the bus from Boston to Braintree, you will see this beautiful landmark out the left side of the bus. It really is quite magnificent.
*
I think that's it for this morning. I need to check on Moo again, then I think I will try to catch a couple of winks. When Eddie gets here today, I will have him check the new monitor that I bought. I can't seem to get the sound to work very loud. I'm off now. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Greetings and all the best to Moo from here.I think it will be dark by the time I am on the bus,landing 5.35pm , then I don't know how long it will take to go through custums, will then have to search for the shuttle bus station, get a ticket, phone Erik and it says on the website the drive is between 20 and 40 minutes depending on traffic.But your landmark is certainly bright and sticks out, so maybe I can catch a glimpse in the dark.Make sure you get enough rest yourself during this hard time.
Hugs Snowy

I can understand that it is hard to leave Moo alone at night,but you cannot give work up completely, I suppose. Hope that their can be made an arrangement with the nurse.! Lots of greetings and a hug too!
