So far, things seem to be going great.

I second Julie's comment. I've had lots of years overseeing complicated computer projects. Know first hand the amount of work behind the scenes to make sites work well. Deep bow of appreciation.

Re: Moving a loved one and re-homing a pet

It might make your SIL happier to know that her dog is being taken care of and that "they'll get back together when she's healthier." Maybe photos, videos, or even Facetime would help ease the transition until she stops asking about it. Thanks, Nords. Certainly something we need to reassu...

Re: Moving a loved one and re-homing a pet

Do they live in the area, where they could bring Charlie for visits (if allowed)? They don't live very close. I'm not sure I would want Charlie visiting anyway, because he is a little bit of a wild child. He's a good hearted dog, but needed a lot of training that he didn't get from two elderly, fra...

Re: Moving a loved one and re-homing a pet

If she has to sit at home alone grieving for a while before moving, missing her dog and hating the idea of moving … somehow that just doesn't seem right. That's kind of how I felt about it. Seemed like a bumpy transition given where his sister is cognitively at the moment. If she were a little fart...

Re: Hack for falling back asleep in middle of the night

Thanks again for posting this, @SusanJ! My pleasure. Happy to share my hacks to help my fellow E4 travelers get a decent night's sleep. My husband has started using it to deal with the stress of dealing with moving his sister to memory care after his brother-in-law's recent passing. It's not a 100%...

Re: Moving a loved one and re-homing a pet

Try having the new owner come for extended visits with the pet, take the animal for walks and care for it in the new home for short periods before full-time ownership begins. Small steps are easier on everyone involved compared to an abrupt change. Thanks, NF52, I read that page, too. My brother-in...

Yep, this is the type of M&P she used. I think you're right that crushing gives more flavor.

Moving a loved one and re-homing a pet

I know this forum is not for caregiving per se, but I'm wondering if anyone has faced moving a loved one to memory care, who has a beloved pet. My brother-in-law has recently passed, and my sister-in-law can not live on her own. She has a dog she absolutely will not give up - a 70+ pound pit bull - ...

I have a friend from South America who has a large set just for making guacamole. As a taste tester I can say it was really, really good!
