Anyone have any recent news of BlueBird and how she's doing? Haven't
heard from or about her since around Christmas. Hoping all is OK.

I talked to her about a week ago. She's still hanging in there, but
things are getting hard for her - or rather, harder. LittleBit seems to
be having some problems, which doesn't help, of course. BB is also
feeling the effects for the Alzheimer's. Finances are very tight, so
figuring out what to do is a worry. She is trying to work something out
where she can share an apartment with a friend, who is willing to look
after her. However, she is currently in some sort of subsidized
housing, and she loses the financial help if she has another person
living with her. They need to find a place they can afford between
them, and, of course, moving will be very hard on her, but it looks as
though it will be necessary.

She gets to the computer occasionally, just long enough to do a group
mailing of a joke or inspirational story, but doesn't have the strength
to come to newsgroups any more. That is too bad, because she really
misses them - especially this one.

She still loves getting cards and notes.

worried, she sounded fairly chipper then I just posted her to tell her I was
saving a few more clippings to send her, but it apperantly went astray, I
will be trying again tonight at her other e.mail address, hope she's ok

If a person with a disability needs live in help, the subsidy is not affected.
A letter from her Dr explaining her needs is needed. The roomate would not have
to pay rent which could be considered part of his/her rent. I almost did this
but opted for overnight help sleeping on my foldout love seat. Also there are
programs that help pay for in home help amount etc., varies from state to
state. Email me Joy if you want more info.

Unfortunately, BB has already checked out all resources in Alabama,
where she lives, and has run into dead ends everywhere, other than the
help she is already getting. She is all alone there, and while she has
concerned friends, they have their own lives and are not able to do much
more than shop for her and take her to the doctor. Because of her
Alzheimer's, she doesn't feel able to carry on the long, complicated
phone conversations that would be involved in trying to get more help.

She does have a son, but he lives in another state. He almost never
calls her, and often doesn't talk to her when she calls. He has never
brought his children to visit her. She wouldn't even have pictures of
her only grandchildren if it weren't for his wife, who writes her and
sends pictures. Her son's solution to her problem is for her to move
near him, where he would put her into a home. She would be away from
all of her friends, and he would have complete control over her life.

Unfotunately programs vary widely from states to state. I'll have Spicey purr
that BB's situation inproves.
