A real funny one

Grab some kleenex and get ready for a good laugh.
A very dear lady in the nursing home was moved to a differant room yesterday because she did not get along with her roommate.(It is sad that there are very few private rooms and many of these people have to share a room.I can not wait until the day a new home is built and most people can have a private room).
It is not hard to understand why this lady did not get along with her roommate.Her roommate is a very nasty crabby old lady who is mean to everyone.She tries all of the staffs patients almost daily as well.
This lady I am talking about would refer to her roommaate as a "BITCH", now hearing a 80 some year old call a 98 year old a bitch can by itself be funny.
It was sad today that this women was confussed and upset about her new room.I think she thought she as in a new place and her kids just kept moving her to a new nursing home.She was extreamly tearful this morning and would not leave her room.It took some of Mr.Brian's charm and sweet talking to get her out of bed,and even more to get her to get dressed. It is amazing the things I can think to say to get them to do things.I prefer to think of it as compromising instead of telling fibs.
Anyhoo,I tried several times to get her to go to the bathroom to go potty but she always refused.Now she is not allowed to walk by herself because of the risk of falling so she has an alarm on her chair.It beeps when she gets up.I heard it going off so I went to check on her.She was trying to go to the bathroom I walked her to the bathroom.As soon as she sat down she started to go potty. She was still tearful and she looked at me and said....I just have water coming out of both ends today.
Tryingnot to laugh I just finished helping her get back to her chair.After I got her setteled I just gave her a big hug and told her tomorrow would be a better day.
Yes I am home and where i belong.It is great being back where I am happy.
Hope you all have a great week.If I do not stop bye or post it is because I am ahving some computer problems.
