My Mom is home from the hospital and doing really good. Thanks to everyone for your prayers..they do help! My sister Midge is wonderful. She made some changes to her home office so Mom could spend her recovery on the first floor. She is the main "go to" person for Mom and with both arms in splints she needs help doing basic things. But Mom isn't a quitter! She is moving her fingers as much as possible and doing everything she can to rehab her hands. I think of her as the amazing bouncing octogenarian! My brothers and nieces and nephews are also on hand for anything that might need done. I feel so bad I don't live close. Having an amazing family is such a blessing. Mom made me laugh when she told me about the "talk" she gave to one of the nurses. Now, I've been on the receiving end of a "talk" from Mom when I was young and I don't think she's lost her touch. The nurse had some questions she needed to ask and started out treating Mom like she had only one brain cell. Mom was offended by the tone that was used and suggested that the nurse needed a different delivery. Everything turned out OK and the nurse survived....Welcome home Mommo! On a different note, here are a few scenes from the Pines as Spring winds down and Summer tries to make an appearance. The temps have been very chilly these past days, but sunshine abounds and the frost and freeze warnings are gone for now. Before they are all just a pleasant memory...here are the flowers:
parade and a ceremony at the cemetery to honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice to keep us a free nation. Thanks to all who serve and to all who have served in the past. I don't like to call this day a "holiday"....just an "honor day".
