Severe Storms and Mom…

Quick post…we are in the middle of flash flood warnings and severe storm warnings…

Mother threw me out today – Bless her heart – I don’t think she realized it was me.  I was visiting with her and she noticed people going into the dining room – which is also used for recreation.  She asked me what was going on – I told her – “they are having church”.  She said she wanted to go and she would see me later…When the Pastor greeted her – she said in a clear voice “I’m  fine, thank you!”

Good report for her 90 day review…She has gained 6 pounds up to 102 pounds now…She eats well and participates in all the activities.

And, the best news – she went out to lunch in New London at Four Corners Resturant.  She had chicken fingers!  And, she also went to the dock to see the boats and had ice cream on a different day.  Megan (the activities coordinator) told me when asked what kind of ice cream she wanted she said “vanilla”.   And, she remembered to tell me!

The best part of all of this – is that it has become her home for her to do things that she enjoys – and she is doing things again…Makes me very, very happy!

    Glad to hear the good report on your mom and how nice that she is SO comfy that she wanted you to leave so she could proceed with her activity (church). That was kind of cute, actually. Storms off and on here since about 4:30 tonight. Hoping I can get to watch So You Think You Can Dance and won’t have to turn the TV off due to lightning.

    See, it goes to show you, you’re never too old to be kicked out of the house!
    I’m so glad she’s doing so well. It really is amazing how she’s getting out and about and thriving.

    I am so glad I stopped in this early morning. Nothing like good news to start the day. So glad your Mom is doing well. I know how it soothes the soul to have that kind of care for a loved one and to know the loved one is enjoying it.
