We are all going to the hospital on Wednesday - hopefully won't get the appointments and treatments mixed up.
Yujiro and Okaasan - got Health Check-up invites from the ward office, Yujiro seems to think that Okaasan will happily go along with him for that. I have my doubts...because she doesn't think regular, mainstream medicine has any value, and that she is perfectly healthy.
I think she probably IS physically healthy actually: she eats loads and is active with the walking and the dancing. I doubt the basic health check-up will spot the dementia, and even if it does - neither Okaasan nor Yujiro will want to do any more medically about it. And really...why bother? She's almost 80, dementia mendication would slow the inevitable process...but not stop it. She has good quality of life now, and in a few years we will all descend ever downwards into chaos.
But I hope she does go along for the check-up because it will get her into the local health care system and on the official radar for future.
Oyomesan - heading for my second knee injection. The knee is so-so, I am taking it all very carefully. I sat down in most classes today. I sat down all yesterday afternoon.
Chichi and Popo - will head to the vets and become - New Halfu.....in other words, have their little, black furry balls snipped off. New Halfu is what Japanese media dub the various gay/transvestite TV talent people who appear all over the place...so I am hoping that Chichi and Popo (which are pretty good New Halfu names in fact!) will come home from The Snip and become expert at interior design and make-up makeovers. They can start right here: the house and me.
