I made this piece on my Ipad pro using procreate. Inspiration from Pinterest.
My dad was released from the rehab/nursing home the first of the month. He went home with home health care set up but it didn't last long. About a week later he was taken to the hospital by ambulance again but with Cdiff this time. After countless hours in the ER they admitted him again they didn't want to keep him long though. I tried to explain to his doctor in the hospital that if they sent him home with that they were putting my mothers life at risk since she is immuo suppressed and her memory is still not good so we could not be sure she would take the right precautions. The doctor he had in the hospital didn't really care though. He was a real ass. I was able to buy him a little more time though because we were going to try and get him into another nursing facility even though he would have had to pay $160.00 a day. We thought it might be worth it until he was not contagious anymore but it would still have to be put on a credit card. He had just enough credit left to cover it. Unfortunately we could not find any other place to take him so we had no choice but to bring him home. This time we decided to try in home hospice. He is technically not terminal but he was able to qualify because of his stage 4 kidney disease and he does not want any life saving measures. It still does not give us all the care he needs but it was better then home health and there were no other better options. It has been working out pretty well so far but he still has the catheter in and can't get rid of it because he won't have surgery to reduced the size of his prostrate which was found to be the reason he cannot urinate on his own. He has basically been housebound since he came home from the last hospital stay. Neither one of them can drive which makes things harder on us. He has accepted it better than she has but there are still says when she fights it. She was also found to have dementia which is not surprising. She kept saying that she hated her doctor and was going to fire her unless she let her drive again but when she gets to the appointments she acts like everything is fine which drives me crazy. The 2 of them being together 24/7 is a bad combination too. She can get really mean and take it out on him which is not good but at the same time he is not easy to deal with sometimes too. He also will not do much of anything on his own and depends on her for help. I just wish there was a way to get more help for them but this is the best I have found for now. If only money was not an option or Medicare paid for more. It is sad to see their independence taken away but they are not safe to drive or be out on their own. It is still a very stressful situation but I guess all we can really do is just continue to take things one day a time for now.
There was another round of 30 days of Bible Lettering Challenge in September and Stefan Kutz created premade layouts to help make the process easier. I was really looking forward to it but I was only able to complete 1 piece. I thought this one was fitting for everything I have been going through with my parents. Easier said than done most days though.
I made this piece to help welcome in Fall. Inspiration came from Pinterest. Done on my Ipad Pro using Procreate.
Finally I made this piece for the Floral's and Praise for his Glory Challenge on Instagram I was only able to get 1 week done. Struggling with my faith right now but this piece stood out to me and I am happy with how it came out.
That's all for now. I will be back next month with more to share then.
