Back in February Pia was hospitalized fir what they called Human metapnuemovirus. She stayed 2 weeks in PICU and was sent home. She was still congested but we were told that this would ease in time.

So, my FAVORITE caregiver has just given notice. She is in school, at age 60, and is coming up on her last semester, which she's been told is the toughest of all. So, to prepare for her future she felt she needed to quit her position with us and focus on her studies. It's difficult to let her go, but I know it's going to be ok. I've been through this many times, as it's so difficult to find good dependable and caring help these days.
