Where do I begin? Okay, bottom line, Cookie is an alcoholic and is seeking sympathy. Her friend Tamera who comes in to help her is also an alcoholic and her enabler.
At about 4:30-4:45 a.m. Monday, C.J. heard a loud crash in the living room area. She went out and found Cookie had fallen and hit her head. She wasn't knocked out or bleeding. C.J. ran back into the room calling for help; I got up and helped her, with Diane keeping an eye on her. Diane put Cookie in her rollie--walker with wheels and a seat--and tried to get her to the bathroom, which is where Cookie had been headed. She couldn't move her without Cookie nearly falling out of the rollie. Diane tried to call 911, but she is so high-strung I had to take over and make the call. I went back to bed; C.J. and Diane helped Cookie back to bed where she said she wanted to be, but gave Diane some problems. When the paramedics came, Cookie was uncooperative and refused aid. C.J. and Diane told the fire captain what happened--it seems he's been here before--and he told them that next time she falls, leave here there and call. If she can't get up when they come, they're taking her; if she can get up, she stays. We are ready to kick Cookie out. She's like one of the original roomies, Denise, who was also an alcoholic and a pathological liar. We kicked her out after she tried suicide and failed; she also wanted attention.
The past week, C.J. has been struggling with her asthma; she was having an attack when Cookie fell(we're sure she's falling on purpose), and all day yesterday she was in a bad state. This morning at 2:30 a.m. Becky and Diane took C.J. to the ER, where she recieved three treatments. They were home by 5:30 a.m.. We're going to have a house meeting about this. Oh, and yesterday evening the Visiting Nurse came to check on Cookie while Tamera was there. Cookie admitted to the nurse that she was drinking 4-6 little bottles of Chardonnay daily, but C.J. showed the nurse the huge bootle of Cobra beer in the fridge. The nurse took Cookie to task about the drinking, etc., and Tamera cleared out--she didn't want to hear this. And Cookie's feeding tube is supposed to be cleaned twice daily, and it hasn't been cleaned in a month. Diane offered to do it, but Cookie refused.
So keep us ALL in prayer because we're sick of the drama.
