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).

Monthly Interview with Denise Brown

Monthly Interview with Denise Brown

It is hard for me to believe my first interview with Denise Brown of CareGiving.com was in February 2011. 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.

The picture doesn't clearly show the words but
they show up on the calendar. August words:
"Believe in yourself - others...

Note to Self: Get it Together!

Note to Self: Get it Together!

For the past few days I have been trying to write this post in such a way as to not come across as an ungrateful, spoiled brat. 

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...

A Caregiving Calendar

What better way to end a Caregiving Progressing Holiday Blog Party than with a gift? 

2015 Caregiving Calendar
Pegi Foulkrod and I have created a 2015 Caregiving Calendar pairing Pegi’s artwork with words of comfort from Denise M. Brown, of CareGiving.com

Pegi’s artwork absolutely takes my breath away.  It...

Epilepsy Awareness Month Recap

Epilepsy Awareness Month Recap

I thought I was going to take a break from blogging for a day or two after a month of posts but I can’t stop!

Okay, this will be short and there won’t be 30 minutes of video to watch (“Phew!” says Other Brother, who hasn’t quite caught up yet).

When I set...

Epilepsy Awareness Month Day 30: Q & A with Robert and Trish (Part 2)

It is the last day of Epilepsy Awareness Month!  I have learned so much from Robert this month and hope we helped others learn about epilepsy and about Robert.

Epilepsy Awareness Month Day 29: Q & A with Robert and Trish (Part 1)

Robert and I are answering questions for the last two days of Epilepsy Awareness Month. I was worried before starting this project that Robert would tire of doing all these videos but he is enjoying every minute of it!  (I should have realized what a ham he is!)

We had...

Epilepsy Awareness Month Day 28: Brotherly Love

Epilepsy Awareness Month Day 28: Brotherly Love

My first memory, as impossible as it seems, is of my brand new baby brother being carried through the back door of our two-bedroom, white house in Omaha.  We moved out of that house when I was entering the first grade and we forever after referred to that house as “the White House.”

I could...
