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
I finally made it to Hobby Lobby, and luckily too bad I didn't find more! I saw ones that I would love to get, but they weren't on sale.
I took Nathan later in the week to try again and he found two things he wants to make for his grandmother. She sings, "♪You are my Sunshine♫" and loves butterflies. He has until July to make them so he needs to get busy!
I'll have to try, try again next week for the ones I didn't get, crossing fingers!
And for those of you not living in the States, take a look here... Hobby Lobby Cross Stitch. If you see something you like, I can always see if it's on sale when I go next week. The sale price doesn't show up on the website, so I won't know if it's on sale until I go.
I'm still waiting on the mojo to show up, maybe starting one of those kits might help?!
Nathan and I are visiting my Mom tomorrow, so I'll update then!
