During part of Nathan's spring break, we went to stay with Dad and visit Mom in rehab. Gman1 came down for the day.
This is standing outside her chapel next to the new statue Dad bought for her.
Always a delight to spend time with Mom's roommate, she was able to room with her again!
Oma's looking great!
Nathan started some stitching.
Dad promised Nathan a fire while we were there.
So my Mom is doing much better, she may be another month in rehab. She's finally on solid food again, but is alternating with the
mush pureed food too. She's doing well with her breathing, but still on oxygen. They are hoping eventually she'll only need it at night. The staff there are all impressed with how hard she pushes herself, and she is now walking down the hallway with her walker, one direction so far. They all LOVE her, awesome!
And finally, the cards... WOW, thank you!!!
I don't post on facebook much, but I did post a request there too about sending cards to my Mom. Here's a breakdown of what she's received.
From growing up - Pam, Sharon, Jonnifer, Paula, Kimmy, Tricia, Sherri
From family - Tammy, Erin, Gerry and Ron, Ruth and Jude, Lucy, Kelly, Jeanie
From friends she knows (but may not remember meeting!) - Margo, Kim, Linda and Phil, DJ, Denise, Donna
From my hometown friends - Lynne, Paula, Debbie, Ginny and Malcolm, Lisa
And from my stitchy friends - Martha, Katie, Faith, Maggee, Penny, Sheryl, Barbara, Claire (Mom met DJ, see above!)
I love the way they are trickling in, thank you so much for the cards and sweet words, Mom is loving them!
This is what she had received when I was there.
The big card came from Lisa and she included confetti (luckily big!) saying Blessings, Happiness, and Smiles.
And this lovely heart was in the card sent by Sheryl! Thank you, Sheryl, she was thrilled and it's hanging in her room.
Mom enjoying a real cup of coffee, not thickened!
Dad sent this today, there was a dog show and these cuties were visiting.
All for now, I hope to go back in about 10 days.
