Hello my friends - I've missed you! We've had our first full week of mum at home, she was ever so glad to get here.
She's constantly freezing, even when everyone else is warm. Her doctor thinks it's her thyroid, so he's checking things out. Yes that's a roll of toilet paper next to her - we ran out of kleenex, lol. Keepin' it real.
She's doing very well, except for anxiety. She's been breathing so badly for so long, because of the mitral valve, and is having a hard time adjusting to the fact that she can now breathe easily! She refuses to lay down flat, and sleeps in the recliner.
We laughed the other day - told her I thought that getting her here would be the easy part, we'd sit around and drink tea and read and I could stitch. Turns out, driving to the hospital and nursing home every day was the easy part!
Every day there's someone coming in, and usually multiple someones. PT, OT, nursing, social workers, you name it. And I'm constantly washing something - dishes, laundry, counters, floors, bathrooms. Not a lot of time to stitch!
I have started a new Christmas design.
Don't think it'll be ready for Christmas, though. I was hoping to make it for my cousin, sigh.
Autumn is just about over, it's been absolutely splendid.
That's my view across the street. It's been unseasonably warm, for which we're profoundly grateful, but I woke this morning to frost. Most of the leaves are gone. The bucks in the back meadow are butting heads, the squirrels are frantically burying things, and I think one of them has taken up residence in our living room wall. Good times.
Well that's all from me, I've been hoping to get around to your blogs and try to catch up, but my computer is hardly on. I've been full on flat out and wow, Christmas is coming - we're having Thanksgiving here, and celebrating two birthdays that fall on that day as well! This year has gone by in a blink.
Keep well my friends, I miss you so much!!!!!
