The ones that retired were the smart ones... get the F out while you can.
the ones that stay on... even to take a step in another direction, IMO are loving that "power trip"... and making Stupid Money.
Your first comment in this thread is assinine. you might as well include cheech and chong as well. Throw in Pryor as well... Hell.. throw in all comics of the era.
Unbelieveable that you have the Testicular fortitude to say that... and now your "class clown" is RIP.
My mother asked me to never be put into a nursing home.
I promised her I would not. I made sure she was comfortable in her home. I brought her groceries every weekend, and made sure all bills were paid. I hired people to clean, cook and watch her. I took turns helping when the help had to be relieved.
Nobody else in the family would come over to help or visit
Every Family is different... Family medical history is taken into account.
My mother knew what it was like to put her mother in a nursing home.
I'm glad I fulfilled my promise to my mother, despite the family backlash... and it's all about the $$$... and it was her money... not mine.
I hope I never have to be in one.
I'll treat this like I treat technology.
Let them be the first to try it.... see if they like it. They will find out what's wrong with it. Maybe it will be a "Lemon"... maybe not. They may get a lifetime of enjoyment out of it.
The result will tell the rest of those sitting on the fence to embrace it or let it go for something better down the line.
I'm not going to "dis" anything here. If she needed Kidney Dialysis, they should have found a facility in the country.
"Think I'll just sit here and die"...
I would rather try saving my life, or my spouse, then anything else... so she should have been brought to a medical facility...
deal with the $ or shekles or rubles later...
