Thank you, HBO!

I got back home around midnight last night, and my head is still whirling. I don't know where to begin.

The film is, well, like I said, I don't even know where to begin. Just do whatever you can to see it, you won't regret it.

While I am recombobulating, (I will write in more detail later, I just need time to process everything right now) please do go read and say hello to Joe. Like Mom, he is also profiled in the film, and I got to meet him and his wife at the screening. His blog is the real deal; I can only give a caregiver's perspective.

I'll leave you with this for now.

Annie! I'm so glad you had a good time. I love your beach picture. Hope your mom weathered her stay at the spa OK.

Annie said...

Thanks Rick!

Robyn, Mom did fine, we even had her stay an extra day. The plan was first that my sister would pick Mom up and take her to her place, and then I would drive from Mpls to my sister's, pick up Mom and drive home, which would get us home around 2 am or so. We extended Mom's stay a day, my sister was able to take the day off, and she picked her up and brought her here today. It was nice having the extra time to ease back into caregiving mode.

We miss you! The sun departed Ventura shortly after you did - heavy fog and cool today.

Thanks for sharing your HBO experience with me!

I dropped Joe a comment. Good to have you back.

I visited Joe also-

the words "real deal" and "only give a caregivers" really struck me.

Even in his posts, Joe acknowledges that this must be so much more difficult for his caregivers.

Annie, you are the real deal.
