One Down, Two To Go

So, the first of the big three-day summer holidays is now officially over. We rightfully celebrated and honored those who wore (and wear) the uniform of this nation to keep us safe from harm. We visited with families and had food galore. Hey, maybe we, and our loved ones, even strayed off our diets a little─or even more than a little. Corn needs butter and salt and what is a picnic without barbecue, pies and even ice cream?  Hopefully your digestive system didn’t create its own fireworks because of it.  Before the next summer feast, make a point to talk with your loved one’s doctor, dietician or nutritionist and put together a Holiday Nutritional Roadmap for them and for you....continued

My mother-in-law is 82 and is very intelligent, sharp and witty. She survived being on a ventilator for a week and seems to be on her way to recovery although she will be unable to live alone. My husband and I have made a decision to take care of her in her own home. I love K with all of my heart and will do everything within my power to see that she lives out her life with happiness and dignity. Any suggestions from experienced caregivers will be appreciated.

Thank you.
