Pinky decided to take care of Wheelchair Lady around Thanksgiving 2010 I think, and since then taking care of her has been Pinky's #1 priority. Producing Pinky Show materials has had to take a back seat to caregiving - which happens to be 24/7 work because Alzheimer's + Parkinson's disease + strokes is no joke. I'm sure many of you have noticed that our output has dropped to nearly zero the past couple years.
However, to make a long story short, since Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases are degenerative in nature, the caregiving was getting more and more difficult and finally even Pinky realized that she could not properly take care of WL by herself. (Don't look at me - I am NOT the caregiving type) Anyway, after a lot of soul searching and research, Pinky finally decided to move WL to a nearby nursing home. It's a nice nursing home with lots of trees and stuff, and Pinky will be visiting her every day. It's a big change though, and Pinky's still feeling very sad.
Me, though, I just think this a good decision.
Wheelchair Lady will finally get the higher level of care she needs, and
Pinky will finally be able to return to working on Pinky Show stuff.
Which is what I think Pinky's real contribution in this lifetime is
supposed to be.
