I reluctantly write this entry. Well, the CNA situation did end just days after I wrote that we had 2 good weeks. There was a lot of difficulty with attendance and an entitled attitude that truly got under my skin. However, when she quit a few weeks back, I allowed her to stay with the understanding that business can’t go on as usual. For two weeks she came to work on time and did a great job. And then she bombed by leaving me high and dry with no care for two days. Chronic attendance problems got her fired.
It feels like every time I write an entry about how well things are going with a CNA, things bomb! I should stop writing entries like that because if I didn’t know better I’d think I’m jinxing myself. Lol Man! It never fails. I write a positive post about the CNA and then things blow up.
Anyway, the company is sending out a new CNA Monday. I don’t know what time or if she will be permanent. I just know that I should have a full time aide very soon.
Tune in next week for more CNA drama on Sundrip.
In other news, I’m still battling a bit of the rash on my arm. It’s the last of the medication reaction. What a beast that was to deal with.
July will be expensive because I had to purchase a part for my horse (wheelchair) and several medications not covered by insurance. This would make me unhappy if I didn’t have a plan to even things out a bit. Since I had to fork over money for the adaptation and meds, I figured I’d also gift myself a nice, fluffy, purple robe. Oh, it looks so soft. I’m days away from wrapping up in it. I can’t wait.
