[Comments] (9) Just Follow the Rules, Ma'am:: Another chapter in the saga of me v. the medical establishment. The home health service thinks I should live my life lying around in bed at home, ready for their beck and call. I keep TRYING to educate them otherwise. I'm not going to lie around in bed until someone has to chain me to it.

So today I was at work, left about noon, came home, and lo and behold, as I turned onto Cedar Street, there were Jill and Sara Langley chasing me down the street. It turns out the nurse was looking for me all morning, and they ended up calling Kim Cornett (my emergency contact), and Kim called Jill and Sara [because they have a key] so the Langleys could come over and see if I was dead in my bed with the cats eating me. I have told and told and told the agency that I work until noon. They don't believe it.

I called Kim to apologize and thank her for fielding that emergency, and she said she will never let me be dead in my house for a week with cats eating me. She is such a good friend!

Idiots. I support you Mommy. Why keep you alive if they won't let you do anything?

Hello! Don't they understand that we (well, at least I) would go stark raving mad sitting home all day. I would die if I didn't get out of the house and go to the office.

That's cause you live with a 2-year old, and Mom has Gretel to drive her nuts. They would want out if they lived with Tyler or the Gretel/Sadie combo, too.

Not exactly. I'm not happy if I'm not accomplishing anything. I would never have made it as a housewife.

I thought you played the housewife role for a number of years. Hmm, Susie has some explaining to do.

I think she was just pretending cause she had to.

Frances doesn't do anything halfway. If she is going to do it at all, she does it all the way, even if it stinks.

She sewed me UNDERWEAR for my baptism day, for crying out loud! It is almost like she gains strength in defiance of difficulty.

She's my hero.
