Gold We have internet again

We finally have internet at home so I'm back. At least until it goes out again.

The last few months have been rough. The sister that lives with us tore a ligament and has been out of work. She has disability insurance, so she has some income. Just not what she normally would. Her car has decided it no longer wanted to work so it is at mechanic.

My mother caught bronchitis. She got too weak to get from bed to power chair. and ended up at hospital. She got over the bronchitis quickly, but was still too weak to come home. She went to a rehab place. For the first few days she got better. Then she got dehydrated and her blood pressure dropped dangerously, She broke out in a rash from head to toe, caused by stage 5 kidney failure. Once they were able to her hydrated she got better quickly. A month later she was able to come home and is doing very well.

In the last few months we have HAD to replace the stove, clothes dry and washing machine. We have also had to have a repair on the refrigerator.

Worse of all my baby became old enough to by real grown up drinks. I am not ready for Kibby to be old enough to go to bars and stuff.
