Guts And Glory
Trust me, she's smiling - mum is at the rehab/nursing home. She's doing VERY well. Still on oxygen, but she does need her pacemaker replaced - yet another surgery, but this one will be outpatient and in about 3 weeks.
My friends, I'm sorry I've been so silent, but I've been at the nursing home all day and half the night. Mum had some transfer trauma, so did I - but this place is more like a 5-star hotel than a nursing home, and she's settled in nicely. They have a master chef and I'm afraid she's getting spoiled. My cousin, who travels around to nursing homes all the time, said she's never seen such a nice place.
My poor sewing and home have been sorely neglected. But at least mum has not been! While understaffed, everyone has been uncommonly kind and helpful. Did I mention this is an amazing place, lol? Mum has not been having much pain at all, hasn't needed pain meds, it's incredible.
We both thank you for all your prayers, from the bottom of our hearts. This has been quite the ordeal, and not over yet, but I know your prayers got us through. Thank you my lovely friends!!
See you soon....
