Care Plan

Nothing is business as usual while waiting for a fast track COVID – 19 test. I definitely lost sleep over it last night but I was able to get a good nap. I feel much better.

The nursing company said I’d know more about the care plan today which is that I will have the same CNA during the week and keep my same Sunday CNA as well. Nothing changes except how well they are protected in this house.

Today I had the gift of 2 bottles of Lysol disinfectant that you can use either diluted or full strength. It kills 99.9% of all living things and smells really good. I also now have 2 containers of disinfectant wipes, a small bottle of 70% rubbing alcohol and a large bottle of Southern Comfort 80 proof alcohol for evening emotional sanitization. I really scored on this lot.

I will hear more soon I’m sure but for now we’ll just continue to wipe down the apartment and keep 6 feet from one another inside as best as possible.

In other CNA news, it appears that this is my final week with the CNA who said I have evil spirits. She got a job with Amazon and will only work here a few days more. This is ok with me as she has in a way worn out her welcome. Her religious beliefs skew her sense of reality which affects how she views and treats me.

It’s not all been bad with her. We did a lot of fun things like cooking and sewing together. She enjoys plants, too. However, I find it strange that she copies what I do. She purchased more plants for her house exactly like mine. Over a few days she pointed out different plants I have a said, I have this plant now, only bigger. This CNA went out and got a fish tank and the same fish as me and set up her tank like mine then told me about it. She set up a smaller Betta fish tank just like mine as well. She then got the same sewing pattern I base my dolls off of so she can make herself a rag doll. She now purchases lamb regularly because I eat it. There are a few other things but I can’t think of them right now. It’s weird what she does. Despite it being weird it wasn’t a reason to fire her. Her comments about my health and spirituality were damaging enough to fire her but I was trying to wait for her to leave on her own since she said she was going to. Now she is. We’ll part on peaceful terms though, which I like.

So that’s the update. I’ll know more soon about the test. Now if you’ll excuse me I have a small glass of Southern Comfort waiting for me. 😊

So glad your caregivers are continuing! And yes, what a find of cleaning supplies! I was running out last week so started trying to find some online..which I couldn’t. So I noticed that toilet bowl cleaner says “kills 99% of viruses” so I bought several and started using it around the house. Two days later I had to stop because it was eating all (and I mean all) of the metal fixtures, faucets, handles, and doorknobs! Everything is now covered in rust! So, umm don’t clean with toilet bowl cleaner folks!

No need to feel nervous, comment if you'd like.
