I Looked Great

Liesal, my personal home nurse, from the hospice care program, came to see me this afternoon. She was so excited to learn all about me. Liesel will be my regular nurse. This being her very first visit; she asked lots of questions about me.

Liesal said I looked good. You can't imagine how much comfort that brought to me. I held up well over the years, and look so young, she added.

I knew from the moment that she came in that I liked her. She made me feel good about everything. Mostly, she said my pressure and my lungs were good; that's what I'm most concerned about.

Just as my nurse was about to go, I asked for an apple sauce. I was hungry I said. So, I was eating apple sauce as Liesal left for the day. I wasn't properly dressed to go out to the living room, but after she left, I got dressed and went out to the living room. I hadn't moved a bowel for hours. Yeah! But had to again, on the way out to the living room, and again, soon after getting there. This super-regularity is becoming a bit bothersome. I'm going to take some Pepto-Bismol and have some water pudding. Guess, I'll stay in bed a bit longer; it's closer to the bathroom.
