Apartment Life #215


This is a new weekly blog post that I'm calling Apartment Hell  Life. I've mentioned a few times some of the crazy things that go on in and around my apartment complex in the past 21 years that we've lived here and people keep telling me I should write a book. But instead of a book, I've decided to share the crazy things that have happened in and around my apartment complex in the last 21 years here in a weekly blog post.

This week I saw a police car near the sound wall and when I stepped outside I saw that white car behind it pull up and it was a guy wearing a vest with LVPD logo on the back and a police shield hanging from his neck on a chair. So I'm thinking he might have been a detective. Right directly across from the police car is the alley for the apartment complex across the street from me and there were at least 7 police cars over there for hours. I have no clue what happened. It wouldn't surprise me if it were drug related though because there's a lot of activity that goes on over there. People actually pull up in their cars, honk their horn and someone will run out and take money from them, run back in an apartment and run back out and give the person in the car something and then they drive off. All day long. 


We heard a gunshot at 5:30am Thursday morning. There had been a party going on at 2am across the street when I took the dog for a walk so it was probably from them. I'm jut glad I wasn't outside when it happened.


Ken completed his last radiation treatment on Monday. They gave him a certificate and let him keep the plastic mask that fit over his head and kept his head still. When he went in to see his Oncologist on Thursday the doctor admitted him into the hospital because he's lost another 20lbs in the last month and he's not steady on his feet so she wanted to give him some supplements through the IV. He got out on Friday and met with his doctors and an in home hospice team. Ken has decided not to continue with anymore chemo or radiation because the cancer has spread to his pancreas and spine and there's nothing more they can do. So we met with the in home hospice nurse who came out and set everything up for us. It's not the news I was hoping for but we're going to be able to be there for him right here at home for as long as he has left. 

So that's it for this week's Apartment Hell  Life! Be sure to come back next week for more.
