Today my daughter Katie graduates from College at Blue Mountain Community College. She will have her associates in Ag Education and this weekend will be moving home to attend Missouri State University in the fall and get her Bachelors in Ag Education as she wants to become an Ag Teacher for highschool kids.
I want to thank publicly Chad Bybee and Jason Shriver for their counsel, support and encouragement to her in highschool and during her college time! You both have been the BEST teachers she could have ever had, and we thank you for all you have done to help her!
Next week I will be posting photos and the story from the Ceremony!
She was just sent to a psychatric hospital this morning for evaluation and when that is done she will not be going back to the nursing home but to a facility that can care for her problems.
Before her stroke she was angry just to be at the facility or if someone did something she didn't like- but since her stroke her anger (it affected the front right part of her brain that has the inhibition and good choices part in it- well she doesnt have either anymore ) she has become harmful to others in the nursing home and the staff. They have given her meds for it but they cannot keep her doped up all the time. She needs a different care now than they can give her and I am ok with all of this. I know they have her best interest at heart. I knew it was coming after her display when we took her out for dinner on Mother's Day.
This was not a surprise. I am glad to see her get the care she needs. The social worker that called me cried because she loves mom and hates to see this happen but she did admit she probably kept her there longer than she should have. and I want to publicly say that Brookhaven Nursing Home is AWESOME.
Ken will remain there and continue his radiation. He has always been good to me and taken care of my mom as best he could.
Starting today I will be away from computers for several days. I will be taking time to spend with my grandkids. As you may or may not know they all live at 2000 miles away and ANY time I can spend time with them is a joy!
