I have run out of titles - but let me sum it up: Sly is a big fat jerk who severely injured his own wife because of his drunkeness

  • Primo


    Lots of bad news today. I will copy you on an email to the family.
  • Me


    Oh no. I was getting worried when I hadn't heard from you

  • Primo


    Perhaps I will sing the Song of Something Bad Happened while writing the email.

    I still haven't sent the email. It's really bad. The MRI revealed serious knee damage, and she may have a fractured vertebra (back X-rays were just taken today). She is looking at several weeks in a nursing/rehab facility.

    This is the crisis I've been afraid of.

    I am out looking at a couple of the rehab facilities.

  1. Oh Goldy, what a mess. Hoping it got resolved quickly after this new crisis, can't help feeling for Doris. Did both Sly and Doris at least appreciate YOU a little more with all this? After all, YOU were the one working to support Primo at this time! And letting him go visit so frequently! You'd think they would have a hard time thinking of you as any kind of gold digger (perhaps they started to think of Primo as a gold digger ahahah)... Jo x

    1. Some appreciation, but not what I think I deserved. :) You are right - Primo is now the gold digger!

    2. And what is *his* bacon eating style like now? However he eats bacon, I know he's doing it wrong.

      Strength and fortitude to you both in these hard times,
      Sparky

    3. Thank you, Sparky. :) Sly is a VERY bad bacon eater!

  2. Oh, how awful. I can only give sympathies.

  3. Poor Primo!

    When my dad had cancer, I moved him into my dining room, with a potty chair, and I had to bathe him. But my dad was wonderful (and I'd had babies to care for), so I didn't mind.

    And my dad was thankful. I can't imagine having to take care of a parent who didn't appreciate what I did. Or anything I ever did.

    I am now following the blog, is there anything else I need to do in case you have to go invitation only again?

    1. Hi Lioners - yes, I would have cared for my dad that way too, because my dad was wonderful as well. But for Sly to insult Primo because Primo expressed distaste at the urine bottle? What a jerk.

      If I have to close the blog again, find instructions on the weekend free for all at Ask A Manager. But I don't think I will have to close down again. :)

    2. We are lucky to have the parents we did, and not Sly or Doris.

    3. Lioners, that is so, so true.
