I'm doing OK.
Have things settled down a bit with Mark now?
Do what you gotta do!
I made home-made Cream of Leek soup if you need some? LOL (It's DEEEEE-LISH!!!)
Oh, things are not settled with Mark. This will be a long process of check ups and the Doctors all keeping a close eye on how his meds are working and
tests and what-not. He has had serious health problems for many, many years. I'm working on finding healthier food alternatives that he will actually
enjoy or at the very least tolerate. He has been good lately. I have tried helping throughout the years, but I know how difficult it is for him to be
so restricted as a picky eater.
The thing is we often ate different things because he practically lived on red meats and really high fat, salty foods. I have quite a variety in my
own diet. There are some dishes that we do eat together.
Another thing with Mark...I found out recently he has been lending money to some ladies he has known for years. I only found out about a few because I
caught him. Well with some of these people he told them they didn't have to pay him back. I was so pissed! I never go through his mail but when he
needed so much money for meds and other things lately, I let him borrow from me. Now, though we are both on limited incomes, he makes a lot more than
I do and I could not figure out why he said he had no money in the bank. Well I opened up his latest statement and saw one lady was lent 200.00 at the
end of September, another 200.00 check in October then another 20 to 40 dollar checks. There were two other ladies with checks for 60 bucks or 20
bucks. Now who knows who else, or how many?
So he went without meds for a couple of weeks and insulin for a day and ends up in the hospital fighting for his life. His Doctor, like other Doctors
have told him...he is heading for a poor quality of life or death if things don't change. I told him I was going to say something in a PM at facebook
to whoever I found on his page that were on the checks he made out and make a general post on his page for any friends who may not be on his page that
have borrowed from him and asking his friends to let others know that the Bank is now closed and this will not be tolerated anymore. I let them know
his damned life depends on it.
I said even though they are borrowing, he may end up needing that money for life saving meds and not have it. I told them, had I known anything about
this back when it all started I would have put an end to it then.
Sorry for the rant.
