Love and Alzheimer’s: July 2019

24 Mar

Monday, July 1, 2019:   Vera is napping next to me. I just gave her a shower after we took a nice walk. The weather has been almost perfect, not too hot but warm enough to swim in the afternoon.  I have not felt like writing much but I have been feeling really good. The swimming usually invigorates me and gives me some extra energy. Vera has been resistant to getting done but I hold her close and she feels me and my attentions. I have been getting off pretty regularly by my own hand and would love it if Vera wanted some stroking. She has been fairly happy and giggling regularly. Her appetite is still very good. Her coughing has been fair. No long episodes but  every few hours I do give her a lozenge or something to suck on. We have been walking twice a day almost every day.

We sold 3 videos yesterday. I wonder if that is due to my feeling more appreciative of the abundance of money from reading the Hicks and Abraham book. I also have been reading Elizabeth Gilbert’s book City of Girls and a couple of books by Diane Setterfield. The Warriors almost won the NBA but Klay Thompson got hurt and in the 6thgame and that was too much to over compensate for and lost. They did play like champions and were winning that game in the fourth quarter when he went down. 

We did drive to Berkeley a couple of weeks ago to see Ginger aka Gia Lynne give her book presentation. She was pretty nervous and did not relate with the audience until the second part when there was a q and a. we got home before it got too dark and it was a fun outing. Her dad our old friend RJ also was diagnosed with a tumor of his colon. It has metastasized and he has to undergo treatments. 

I count my blessings in that respect. Frank came by to swim a couple of times and we got Vera to join us in the hot tub on one occasion. She seemed to like it but has not wanted to do it again since. She also liked sitting in the garden outside.

Sunday, July 21”  It is close to noon. Vera is sitting on the chair next to me. It’s been a beautiful weather wise and emotional wise month too. I have not written much here because I think at least this is what I think that I have not been doing Vera. I tried one time and it was not fun. Vera complained that my hand was too cold and I persisted instead of stopping or at least warming my hands. I have been getting off fairly regularly and those have been fun. I have not given up. We have been kissing frequently and those have been as good as ever. Our hugs are fun too and I can feel Vera enjoying those.

I have been swimming almost daily. Vera comes and hangs out with me about half of those times and otherwise waits for me upstairs. She seems OK with that. I got her a new Snuggle pedic pillow supreme and she sleeps better though at times when she wakes up in the middle of the night and wants to talk though I’m not sure what she really wants to talk about. Sometimes she giggles and then goes back to sleep. A couple of nights ago she was giggling, being entirely amused with something, mentioning the number three and chocolate and then going back to sleep. 

I seem to be happier, more joyous and money seems more abundant possibly from reading Esther Hicks and the Abraham book. I did have a biopsy on a little pimple on my nose and it did come back that I had squamous cell skin cancer. This is quite common resulting from years of sun damage and I will have it taken out though it looks much better after the biopsy. I do avoid the sun usually but not for my whole life. I did not mention it to anyone except Diane since she knows about these things and she has had similar things and so does her husband Jim. 

I started another Neal Stephenson book called Fall. It’s about technology and is fairly interesting. I also started reading another book called Atomic Habits by James Clear. It is short but has good advice, such as; doing incremental adjustments and additions and that habits are best to change by changing ones identity and beliefs. The word identity comes from the Latin root meaning repeated beingness.

I wrote Vera a poem after taking some CBD oil and feeling like writing.

July 26:  It is around noon. It’s been hot out lately but today is cooler. We drove to the store early and then walked. We usually drive on Saturday but it is supposed to be really hot tomorrow. I’ve been really enjoying swimming almost every day. Because of the heat Vera has stayed upstairs. I’ve been still reading Fall and Atomic Habits by James Clear. It has some good ideas in it such as adding on a new habit to an old habit. The 4 parts of a habit are the cue, which should be obvious, the craving, which should be attractive and the response, which should be easy and the reward, which should be satisfying.

I’m feeling pretty good. All of Vera’s kids called this week. They all have health issues of some kind. I gave Helen the library book about the law of attraction and money and she is doing a bit better. She has been asking us for money often but fortunately our stocks have been doing really well so I feel richer than ever. 

Vera is about the same. Sometimes she knows where the bathroom is and other times she does not. She still does not desire sex but she likes kissing. It is hard to get her into the shower but when I have strong intent she responds. She had her hair done this week. I liked the way it looked before better. It seemed fuller and thicker. I think I have to wash it again to help it out. 

I did a podcast yesterday with Nasanin. It went pretty good I think. I don’t know if anyone listens to these things? 

Saturday, July 27:  Another warm day so we both woke up early and were home from our walk by 9AM. I just journaled yesterday but I was very pleased yesterday before dinner when Vera agreed to take off her pants and get on the bed with me. I’ve been asking often, but maybe had a little more intention this time. We had some nice kissing first.

Then I lay down next to Vera and played with her thighs and belly. I could feel some contractions when I pulled up over her clitoral area and Vera said that it felt good. I put my hand upon her genitals and just pressed a few times. Then I got just a little lubricant and just pressed my finger between her labia. This is when she really had some good contractions. I just pressed and released rhythmically. We kissed some more and then I got a little more lubricant and brought it up her labia almost touching her clitoris. She would have a couple contractions with each stroke. Then I got on the clitoris for a few strokes. First pressing then stroking and the contractions multiplied. I gave Vera a couple little peaks like this. I could feel she might have enough and asked her if she wanted more. She said she was done. I waited a minute or more kissing her again  and then felt like there was some more to have. I asked her to say one more peak please and she repeated those words. I gave her a nice one more peak on the clitoris, which Vera enjoyed with even more intensity. I told her I’d bring her down and pressed her genitals again with my middle finger in her introitus. She was still getting off on the way down. She even asked me to do a second wiping off stroke.

My penis was feeling turned-on and I gave myself a number of peaks that Vera watched. I squeezed her thigh at some point too. I leaked quite a bit but did not squirt. Vera was in a really good mood for the rest of the evening.

Wednesday, July 31:  I went to the dermatology surgical place yesterday. Vera came with me. We had to wait quite a bit. I was in a pretty good mood. I like the lady doctor Ahmad. She thinks it will be fast and easy. I have an appointment for next week. Frank will hang with Vera while I am at the appointment.
