Temporary Client (Posted late on 01/08 from 01/07)

Mira was my first ever Marketing Agent. She got my name out and about. She gained me my next two clients that I would like to speak about just a bit. The first was her next door neighbor whose wife of 63 or so years had terrible Alzheimer’s disease, fell and had to go into a specialized home to help her with her rapidly progressing disease.
The unfortunate part of this situation is that this poor man was unable to live without his wife by his side and developed one misfortunate health issue after another. He really only paid once to take him to the doctor for yet another blood test even though I took him food and took in his mail and garbage. It was easy to tell just how very lonely he was without his beloved. We talked about her during the short trip to the doctor and back; the long and the short of it was that he adored her!
Not long after that, while I was dealing with Mira’s illness and downfall, I was told by a neighbor that also helped this gentleman out that he was in the DuPage County Convalescent Center because he had been diagnosed with Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection is caused by a strain of staph bacteria that’s become resistant to the antibiotics commonly used to treat ordinary staph infections.
Since I have a defibrillator/pacemaker, I am not allowed to be around anyone that has that type of infection. It is not that I did not want to prove once again that With Age Comes Respect, it is just that I would not, under any circumstances, be allowed to even see Ed. And that is saying that someone notified to me to let me know he was in recovery.
Ed never came home, the infection spread up his leg and took over his body. He went home, his wife (for all I know since I was not his caretaker) still remains in her state of stupor….albeit happy to be where she is. Hopefully Ed found the peace he was seeking!
