I got a call from the other nursing home I was leery about visiting. I spoke with the right person this time and they seem like they have it all together. Riley and I are going to visit on July 17th. This nursing home has an independent living side and an assisted living side, so we’ll visit both. I just have to take by her shot records (of course…) tomorrow and then we’ll be good to go on the 17th.
I am feeling loads and loads better today! The antibiotics seem to be
finally kicking in. The pain from the pleurisy is all gone today. In fact, I am feeling so good today that I lost my mind decided to give Riley a bath before her nursing home visit tomorrow. She hadn’t had a bath in forever (a few months at least) and has been delighting in getting dirty and muddy lately.
A quick note about our “fancy pants” retirement community we’re going to start visiting: the activities director called me on Tuesday and said that in all of her excitement about Riley and I coming to start visits, she forgot that I have to fill out paperwork, have a criminal background check, and have a PPD (tuberculosis) test before we can start. Our first visit was supposed to be today at 2:00, but I went by and filled out the paperwork yesterday and am waiting on a call back about when I can go get the PPD done. I am actually glad to see that they require all of their volunteers do this–it seems smart to me. So I don’t mind the delay! Oh, and I met Luke, the yellow lab that’s a therapy dog there already. He’s 11 and SUPER mellow…Riley’s gonna seem like the Tasmanian Devil compared to him! 😉
You’ve heard of the Insanity workout program? Yes? Good. Here’s Riley
being insane demonstrating that workout right after her bath…
