SEND SOME GOOD THOUGHTS ROWLANDA'S WAY, PLEASE

If you've been wondering where that colorful person, Rowlanda might be, and missing her laugh-out-loud comments upon this boards (because I sure have), she is off taking care of her very very sick 80-something year old mother. She is able to check in from time to time on her hotel's computer. It might be nice for her to have her own E-card with good thoughts from her friends here at Sploofus.

We miss you much Rowlanda!

We can relate, since we've been taking care of my wife's mom for a while.

Good thoughts and heartfelt best wishes!

In the ultimate scheme of things, it may only help slightly: Rowlanda I've been there, :') only my mom was much younger. It's an overwhelming time for you & I hope you have a few minutes each day to recharge, maybe a nice bath or shower or having a back rub with your favorite beverage & finger foods. When you can't sleep, if it's almost every night, once in while you need to take a benadryl. An extended amount of time w/o sleep will only compound your stress & run down your immune system; your brain needs to turn off, too.
Best Wishes & All My

Good Luck & a Good Nights Sleep to you,
Bunny

I hadn't noticed anything was amiss because I haven't been playing WR's. I am sorry to hear of your mother's illness, Rowlanda. I will keep you both in my prayers.

Rowlanda & I are still in keeping touch, so here's an update. Her Mom's surgery went well but she's refusing refusing to eat, drink or get out of bed. Poor Rowlanda is at her wits end. Having nursed both my parents through their final days, I can tell you that the feeling of helplessness is totally overwhelming. Rowlanda, all I can offer is some love & some hugs And if you're back on the island by Christmas you can come and eat some turkey with me & mine.

Rowlanda, I, too, know what is to become a "parent" to your parent. I will say a prayer for you both. Please remember to take care of yourself as well.

You realize this could all be a ruse and she could be making out with one of the other Beatles. Could be Paul since he's getting that divorce and all. But my money is on Ringo.

Lodi....
You are wicked....I hate Ringo!!!!
Give you a hint though....I'm arranging to get a wooden leg!!!!

Thanks everyone for your kind wishes and prayers. My mother broke
her hip - and her leg in four places, so they had to give her lots
of anaethestic, as well as several days of morphine - so she is
taking way too long coming out of that stupor. Fortunately - it
was confirmed she had an infection, not pneumonia.

Will keep you posted
Lots of Love, Rowlanda

If anyone has the "Beatles at a Party" post of Rowlanda's, please re-post it, I can't seem to find the thread and it is such a great story. I just can't remember even remotely when it was up here or I'd be able to re-locate the thread I'm guessing late winter/early spring of this year?

I think the thread had something to do with who's the most famous person you met or something.

I just remember Rowlanda completely blew us all away.

Rowlanda.......best wishes for your mother's full recovery.
Have patience with her as she tries to get through this. It's really hard for someone her age, I've been through it with my mom (she's 85).
It's a stressful time for you so make sure you take care of yourself as well as her.

Diane.

Just want to thank you all for making me laugh....
Don't do enough of that lately, although I can still
make Mum smile sometimes.
And a special thank you for all those who PM'd me with
advice, and sharing their own experiences with aging
parents.
On the whole, there's
little Joy in Mudsville.
We want them to have peace....
but we don't want to be orphans.
