Mike's home health aid has apparently "disappeared". She called in sick on Monday and the agency hasn't heard from her since. She called me Monday night to check on Mike, but I haven't heard from her either. We have had a wonderful woman helping us right now and we're hoping that she will be available to work regularly. God works in mysterious ways.....we were having such problems with Mary and she was creating such tension and stress in the house. Strange how things work. I don't want to get too optimistic, but for now, things are going well.
Courtney finished her last final on Thursday which means she is COMPLETELY finished with High School. She went to a beach party yesterday and today she's in NYC with her friends. Tomorrow she's going to see David Hyde Pierce's new show Accent on Youth and will be meeting him backstage after the show. This was arranged through my friend that held the dance benefit for Alzheimer's. Courtney will be having a very exciting few weeks before she graduates on June 7th. The week she graduates she will be attending Hofstra's New Student Orientation which is 3 days and 2 nights and the following week she will be taking the Amtrack train to Albany to visit her friend. Then the following weeks are graduation parties, then after that she starts working at the summer camp. I'm tired just writing about her schedule.
Brandon is sick AGAIN. He stayed home from school yesterday and went to the doctor. Another sinus infection. Yesterday was also his 16th Birthday and he made sure I took him to the DMV for his permit test. When Courtney turned 16, she had no urgency to take the test, Brandon MADE ME take him on his birthday. He got 100% - let's just hope he drives that good. I haven't taken him out in the car yet, he wants to wait until he feels better. I ordered food from TGI Friday's last night for his birthday and had cake from Cold Stone. It was quiet, but he enjoyed himself, despite not feeling well.
My hope is that this new aid will bring some much needed relief and stress-free days. Mike seems to be doing well with her and that's all I can ask for.
