Time for Change

My younger sister, Marilyn, and I have a meeting with my older sister's doctor and social worker tomorrow.

I'd been through this before, 3 years ago, when the project was put on hold after 4 months. This time, we worked our butts off, and sailed through a couple of audits. We were able to skip audit #3 because of our hard work, and we went live the first of August. There have been a few bumps along the way, but overall it was a successful go-live.

In the midst of the project, my sister Rhonda became ill. She has spent the last 10 weeks either in the hospital or rehab. At this point, it looks like she may have to go into full nursing care. My siblings and I are in the process of deciding what to do with her apartment, her cats, and her belongings. Tough decisions ahead.
