I watched the stock market as usual. Stock prices fell a little bit today. I have many branded stocks so my stocks are interlocked with the Nikkei stock average.
I suddenly remembered my friend Mr. Y. It was a long time since I last saw him. So, I called him. He has many stocks too and he knew the economy well. He was devoted husband and talked about his wife usually. Mr. Y’s wife said he had cerebral infarction last year. And now his hearing is going. He is already 83 years old. Time flies. More than 10 years ago I learned English at English conversation school. I met him there. I heard he doesn't do anything now. “Come to my house please” his wife said. I want to cheer him up. Maybe my coming to their house will not change anything but I will still go to Mr. and Mrs. Y's house in the near future.
There was thunder around 6pm today. The atmosphere is getting unstable recently. Weather forecast said be careful about heavy rains.
We can’t watch an analogue signal broadcast（TV） effective July24 next year in Japan. effective = starting But in my home we are using cable TV so it's okay. We have been using digital TV already. Analogue TV was change into digital for an effective/efficient radio wave . Before Analogue was also use for another line of communication. Digital TV has a clearer picture, interactive news and weather forecast all the time. I think there's a quick change in the world so I couldn’t keep up with it.
My husband and I made a plan last spring for our trip to foreign country this year. But our plans fell through. Because our dog got sick and my mother took care of her many times. I won’t give up but travelling is not possible for now. I want to travel to Canada and Switzerland...I was thinking about that today. And then I watched TV. The Glacier Express train of south Switzerland derailed. Japanese woman died due to accident in the train.. There were 28 Japanese people who got injured. I sympathized with the oversea’s travel accident.
Five days had passed since my mother moved out of her apartment to live in the home for the aged. I'm relieved and glad because the home has a very good environment with attending nurses all the time. So, the home is very expensive but I don’t care. My mother's legs were painful so she called the nurses last night. The nurse came to my mother's room immediately. （ The nurse soon went to my mother's room.） But the nurse said that she was so busy so she had to go. My mother was disappointed with the nurse's cold manner toward her. 母が介護付きのホームにお世話になる事になった。 本人の希望もあり、私のケアだけでは、共倒れになりそうだったのでベストの選択だと思いたい。 民間の施設だけに高額だけど、設備・サポート・食事に至るまで申し分ないように思っていた。 健康チェックに夜間の見回り、そしてクラブ活動や充実した行事・・・ 母も明るさを取り戻し私も毎日通うのが嬉しくなっていたところだった。 昨晩まで・・・ 母は下痢をしている。食事の後、介護士が薬を配り本人が飲むのを監視しているそうだ。 認知症の人もいるからこれは、大事なのかもしれない。 でもどうなんだろう・・・下痢をしている母に断っても下剤を飲ませている。 それだけではない。母が介護士を呼ぶと冷たい応対。 母は、８４歳だけど全くボケてはいない。挨拶さえしないツンツンした態度に母は、すっかり傷ついてしまった。 確かに年を取れば、人間わがままになってしまうようだ。でも介護士って何なんだ？ そう云う人ばかりではないんだろうけど 人生の先輩を邪険に扱う介護士なんて・・・がっかりしてしまった。 ああ、英語で書けなかったよ(^^ゞ
Just today the rainy season appears to be over. So, it was very hot today. Two days ago my mother moved to “dear.rest Kabe”, an old people's nursing home. My husband, brother and I carried my mother's personal belongings from her previous apartment. She has always been gloomy during her stay in the apartment. And then she has been calling me every early morning. I spend most of my time in taking care of my mother every day. I was exhausted recently. The home has a very good environment with complete facilities which seemed to be perfect for my mother's condition. My mother used to have a worried face but now she has been smiling. It has been a long time since I last saw her smiling. I was very glad. Though the monthly fee for the nursing home is expensive but I don't really mind at all.
What is this diary all about? My husband said “ I want to buy a new desktop computer” this morning. But we already have 4 personal computers . But I thought I want to grant his wish. I told him “ it’s ok”. And then we went to the deodeo( household electonics shop)immediately. My husband bought it. He seemed to like it. Hard disk's drive memory has 1 tb. This time his pc works very fast. My husband didn't get enough sleep last night because he had been using the pc until late at night. He looks very happy. The windows 7 which was not used before in his old pc can already be used in his new pc.
There was an election of the House of Councilors today. It stopped raining around noon so I went to the polling place with my husband. I thought there will be many people in the polling stations but there were only a few voters who came. It might be because of the weather. I had a part time on that evening. I was hired to be a watcher in the election. My task was to watch the election officer closely as he counts the votes. I used a binocular. I already had an experience before as an election watcher.
I received an e-mail from my friend, Mr.Green. Mr.Green is a handle name. Mr.green was named by me. He liked it. / He likes it. He worked/works on the land. He said “ Someone threw some agricultural chemicals into the river.” For what? I said to Mr. Green. I was very shocked. The river is being loved by everyone. We used to take pictures in that river. We have been gone there by taking pictures in that river. And he said “ The policemen are looking into the matter.” Kingfishers have long been living in the river. There are a lot of fish. I’m worried about the living creatures.. creature = any living person/ animal/plants I want to go there but I can’t because the river is a bit far from my place. I don't have much time to go there since I've been taking care of my mother recently.
I had sore throat this morning and worried about having tonsillitis. I was very scared now of tonsillitis because of a very bad experience about it when I was young. I went to the hospital this morning for check-up and the doctor injected me with an antibiotic. The Doctor prescribed a medicine for my throat and after taking it I felt drowsy and had a terrible headache. And so I took a nap and felt better after waking up.
