A little out of focus I see. Like me. But this photo shows the thyme the best. My flowers and herbs were fabulous this year and I needed something to remind me there is still beauty in this world.
I’m headed down to talk to the case worker and idiot doctor for my dad– to tell them if they do not restart that antibiotic I am contacting our elder attorney. Every time they stop it–after just a day or two he gets worse. No idea if they’ll be able to send him to rehab since they either release him after one day or don’t treat him properly–all while they talk to me of hospice which is none of their business. Poor guy is making good strides every time, then they set him back.
DO YOUR JOBS, MEDICAL PEOPLE. DO NOT DECIDE WHEN MY FATHER’S LIFE HOLDS NO VALUE.
I hope you have flowers and a happier day than I will have.
I love words so I write them. I’ve been doing that since I was old enough to read. I am a published literary writer and I was an adjunct English professor at Northern Michigan University for many years. I write and live and love off the grid on 35 acres and a trout stream in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula with my son, Joshua, who has Down Syndrome, and with an English Shepherd dog named Maggie, and with my husband when he can make it here which isn’t often. This blog started out being about my work, and it will continue to be. ( I’m working on a novel about premonitions and dreams.) But this blog is also about living off the grid and about my experimentation with diet—most recently the Carnivore Diet. I started on the Ketogenic diet, but have moved into Carnivore. How long, I don’t know. But I’ve become interest in the effects of diet on not just my health, but on creativity. And I’m interested in the effects of the diet on my dreams.
Ah, dreams... The day before my son was born, my mother “dreamed” or was told my son would have Down Syndrome, something she told my brother ahead of time. I’ve never known what to make of that. So I’m interested in prophetic dreams, lucid dreaming, creativity and dreams, night terrors. Who isn't interested in that? I’m interested in Freud (more Jung) and Einstein’s theories of time and how their ideas inform my dreams. I’m interested in mining a deeper relationship with a dream world not confined to daytime experiences, and how the night might inform a more fully imagined daytime “reality.” And vice-versa. Which is the dream?? I’m exploring dreams of all sorts. Come explore with me…

Sigh. They have folders full of information on people that they do not bother to read. A doctor once had my Dad on a tablet to clear fluid. “It will make his kidneys pump double time to clear the excess away” the doctor happily told me. “You do know he only has one kidney” I said a little concerned..the doctors face turned white and he immediately took Dad off the medication – Dad had helped the kidney removed at the same hospital only the year before. I was so quietly furious that night I couldn’t sleep. The trouble is there are too many of us and the ones that we turn too are often inept – thank God for family who can advocate but it is exhausting. Thinking of you Lynn.
This is just DEAD ON. Dad has been barely living for ten days thanks to them and FINALLY I got a doctor who read his history which is ALL on computers and most been done in that hospital. Very scary. But at least I finally got a good doctor. Put him back on the antibiotics but is also addressing all his health issues and keeping him in there until they are all assessed before sending him to rehab. Been through the mill with those people. And still not sure they haven’t compromised his life here.
