This post is inspired due to a wonderful man I am caring for tonight, I will call him Casanova.
Technology is all around us, we and the children that are growing up are linked at the hip.
However this wonderful 62 year old man revels in starting up his laptop as i start mine, asks me how to find things on his computer,
clicks where I direct him yet it still doesnt work, this does not deter him, Casanova then asks how to get onto the internet, even though his computer doesnt connect he still enjoys asking questions. Later Casanova puts it away after playing a drawing game.
I then look at the last few days i have been with Casanova, looking at the things we have done.
1) went to the Dr and found out he was suffering an infection. This was detected with the use of technology.
2) x-rays done on his hand as he has broken it during a fall earlier in the day, technology of the cat got us to x-ray, then the x-ray machine was another medical technology.
3) lunch, ordering through a McDonalds drive through, technology linking us to the people inside the store to make out meal and provide it to us fresh and hot as well as cold drinks.
With all this technology we still can not assist my dear Casanova in finding out why he is falling over, hitting his head and so unsteady he is unable to left alone at all.
All i can say Technology is all around us but has not been able to answer my questions today..
