Psalm 27:1 The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?
Geese at Fernan Lake, Idaho Taken 4 March 2021
I dropped Mike off at PT, and one of the lunch buddies picked him up for me so I could run some needed errands and I got some time for myself, after I took care of some things, I paid the electric bill, I had 2 other stops, including the pharmacy, for refill meds for Mike. At the beginning of December I found out he had messed up his meds, and was overdosing on one of them. It took me a while to get it figured out, and then, on Christmas Day, and the next day, I ended up taking Mike to the emergency room. It turned out he was in withdrawal. When I took over the medications, I was giving him the prescribed amount, he was taking 3x the prescribed amount – on the 2nd trip into the ER the doctor gave me a plan to wean Mike from the medication and I did, it took 15 pills from the 90 he had been given. Since it’s a controlled substance, it’s monitored very carefully. I ended up having to go into the doctor’s office, and explain to the nurse, why I needed the refill 15 days early. It took most of the day to get an answer, but finally I got the call the medication was ready. I am thankful they didn’t give me any hassles, there were only 2 pills left. But we’re good now.
From there, I was able to go out and take some pictures – it was a very relaxing day and I enjoyed it immensely. I got back to the house at 1 and Robert was here. Mike was dropped off at 12:30, and he couldn’t remember how to open the garage to get into the house. Robert had to open the door for him.
I notice the grill of my car seemed to be bent, and then forgot about it for a couple of days. I went out to look at it this afternoon, with our son, and the whole thing is mashed in!! I also discovered, in Idaho, only a doctor can report someone to the DMV and have their license revoked. I am going to take photos of the various dents, scrapes, and such, print them, and then take them into the doctor to show him Mike has no business driving! Mike doesn’t even remember the damage he’s done to my car, when he sees it he exclaims, “Someone must have hit us!” I tell him, “No, you hit a pole in the Fred Meyer parking lot.” A few days later, we go through the same thing. My car looks like it’s been in a demolition derby (maybe not quite that bad, but there is some serious damage to the vehicle) I don’t want to confront Mike on this – it’s going to be bad enough without my putting myself into the scenario of telling him!
It’s late, after 11 pm, and I had hoped to go out to the store tomorrow, but I haven’t seen Robert tonight to confirm that he’ll be here in the morning and I need to sneak down to the kitchen and make myself a sandwich, I was hoping for some soup, but it looks like it’s not happening this evening.
