Nello's Yelling Woke Me Up In A Fright /// From Febuary 12, 2010 /// Domain Registration Yahoo

A couple minutes before 3:30 a.m. I'm not sure what's going on, I was previously in the state of sleep. I hear "Anthony!", I figured my mother and/or step-dad would have heard as well, and could have corrected what ever the hell was the problem. It became evident that they weren't hearing what ever it was, I soon found out it was Nello.
    When I eventually realized that Nello was yelling for me, I jumped out of bed and into some sweat pants and made my way into his room. I found him lying on the bathroom floor, telling me he's been there for an hour. I really don't want to over analyze this almost 4:00 a.m. bullshit, but I feel he may have been complaining, as if I should have woken up the second he and his walker came crashing down. (Added 2/21/2011: He had an attitude about the whole situation, a sort of anger, that he felt necessary to aim towards me at that ungodly hour. Lying on the floor, realizing you can't even get up, thinking about how old you really are and what you can and can't do, I'm sure most people in that situation would have had as much hostility as he did.)
          His room still smells retched, not as terrible as before, because the rotting flesh that were his toes are gone, but it's still quite unbearable. (He had two toes removed last Tuesday, his second and third starting from his big toe) I hated having to treat and dress his foot, it was disgusting, I had to breathe out of my mouth because it smelled that horrible. As soon as I was done with that process I'd get to go into the hall and take a nice, real deep breath of air and then I scrubbed my hands. The napkins and needles he insists on re-using, are just as disgusting. Hey kids, if you have diabetes DON'T reuse your needles, but I know none of you are that stubborn to do so.

My friend Courtney commented on this blog saying:
"..i took the time to read it, but only after i heard a tumble down the stairs... and walked over to find nick covered in water, ice all over the carpet, and nick (her boyfriend, also my friend) sitting on the bottom of the steps. he also had suffered from a fall this fine morning."
I really enjoyed reading her comment, it provided a needed laugh.
Courtney and Nick are now pregnant, well just Courtney's technically pregnant...
I just wanted to wish them a very happy congratulations on their soon to be newest addition to their union!

I know there are several other 'look what this old person does or says!' internet networking profiles, but I really enjoy telling people I don't know about a part of my life. Is something like this too generic to register for a free domain registration yahoo account? Just wondering what everyone thinks, right now I'm leaning towards sticking with this and seeing if anybody would even care enough to want an actual site.


  1. Ahh i agree with you on this one, thanks for sharing!

  2. A free domain sound good, but how are you going to pay for it? By monthly or annually?

  8. Man I know where you're coming from with this post. My nan suffers falls quite regularly now. Doctors think it may be due to TIAs, but she does also drink quite a lot, so I don't know.

    Anyway she had that same attitude in the beginning. It must be hard realising your limitations.
