Hi Marilyn, am glad to know that you are o.k.I had a customer that happened, to, though she was much older in her 80s. I called her on Thursday morning to remind her of our appointment on Friday. My supervisor was with me as it was her first time out to see me do assessments, and well... Friday morning, we go to the home and ... lights on, no one comes to the door and meals on wheels is sitting at the door not picked up. Thought very strange. Came back to the office, and left a note with the social worker that the appointment wasn't kept. Found out later, the following week on Tuesday that she had passed away, on Thursday night.
Sigh. I reckon it comes with the job, smile. Shelley L.

Hi, Shelley. Hi, All. Not to worry, Shelley, I'm fine, although I certainly do appreciate theconcern. Picture me at my laptop, on the kitchen table, with the TV on in the living room tuned to the political channels, two Shih-Tzu dogs sleeping on various pieces of furniture in said living room, and I'm validating pretty much all day. My email box is also open all day, so I see all the emails, Iread them all, I LOL along with you when appropriate. I pluck most booksoff of Step 1 or after I see a "Just Submitted" message that interests me, and I work on "Sighted Help Needed" books as often as I can. And I'm happy asa pig in poop.On another subject, to make a very, very long story ridiculously short, in the late 1980s my mother sent me, in the middle of a work day, into Queens, NY, to check on her sister, my dear Aunt Rose, who hadn't been heard from sinceshe left work sick on Monday. This was Wednesday. You can guess the rest, which was shocking and sad. Rose was 49 years old.So, if you don't hear from me for days, and I don't answer email for days, feel free to please call my husband Kevin at work, (631) 588-9500, and askwhat's going on. I would appreciate it. Our home phone is (631 750-3205, but he never answers the phone.
