Trish Hughes Kreis

Trish Hughes Kreis Robert is my youngest brother and I handle his care. I also have a supportive family (husband and three kids) and a "day job" as a legal administrator for a wonderful law firm (no, that is not an oxymoron). I do some freelance writing as well. Aside from advocating for the best care possible for Robert, I enjoy playing cards with him and listening to his silly jokes. (Robert’s greatest joy seems to be beating me at cards which he does most of the time).

The Not So Super Super Bowl

Robert’s neurologist convinced me to increase his Trileptal in order to stop the seizure clusters.  He is now at the same dose he was last year when I had to make the difficult decision to pull him off of it.

Monthly Interview with Denise Brown

Since that time, I have periodically joined Denise on her Blog Talk Radio program to discuss caring for Robert and other caregiving issues and have been a monthly guest for some time now, discussing...

Foiled by a Fingertip

Foiled by a Fingertip

I know my tiny broken fingertip is nothing compared to OPPs (Other Peoples Problems). 
At least I got to choose a color!

However, as I've said many times before: there is no competition in caregiving. This isn't a contest of who has it worse (or better).

On the other hand,...

The Calendars are Here! The Calendars are Here!

After pairing the artwork of Pegi Foulkrod and the Words of Comfort by Denise M. Brown in a 2015 calendar and pushing the “purchase” button, I started to panic.

Hard to do when I have been exactly that.

As everyone knows, I love to decorate for Christmas. (If you don’t know that then...
