Update on Mom!!!

Here's my sweet Mom. Our dear friend Rosie took it on saturday. Her and I went to visit Mom and it was a beautiful day outside. We put her house coat on and took her outside to the court yard that was right outside her room. She LOVED it!!! First time she had been outside for almost 2 weeks. We sat out there and talked and Mom had a visit by another couple who are friends of hers and Dad. Below is pictures of Me and Mom and Rosemary and Mom.

Mom will not like her pictures when she sees these as her hair isn't fixed up. She is very vain about her looks and how her hair looks,,lol. But I think she looks wonderful. We really had the best time with her on saturday. After our outside adventure, we went inside and Rosie taught us how to make some Orgami Peace Cranes!!! It took us a few but we finally mastered the technique. We also took Mom a hot fudge sundae as she does love them. Rosie also made her some scrumptous blueberry muffins, Mom loved those too!
After a while Mom was getting a little tired and my Dad came in to visit too. So Rosie and I scooted on out of there. I took Rosie to the coolest Antique/junk store here in Dickson. We had the best time, spent almost 2 hours in there,,laughing and having so much fun. We did buy a few things and I am sure it will become a pretty favorite hangout for us when she comes to visit again. Then we had to slide by Sonics and have a few drinks and some of those delicous Cinnabons,,OMG,,they are awesome. We sat and talked and laughed while we ate those babies.
I tell you,,it was just what the doctor ordered for me. I needed a fun day and any time I am with my Girlie Rosie,,well I know I am going to laugh and have a lot of fun! Thanks my Girlfriend,,your the best!!!!
Mom is doing a little better each day. She is still having problems with her bladder not working and still has a catherer. They took it out yesterday hoping she could go with out it but unfortnately that didnt happen. So they had to put it back in and tomorrow a Urologist will be coming to see her at the Rehab. She is getting a little bit of her strenght back, thanks to the PT that she has been getting. They are just wonderful too her at the Rehab, and I don't think she would have got that good of care of she had went to one in Nashville. They Love her here and you can tell it.
Sunday was a beautiful day here. Spring was here for the day. It got up to 70 degrees and sunny. I worked out in the yard most of the afternoon. Then I had to take a few pics of my cardinals.
This is one of the better shots. Hard to get them to hold still when they are hungry. But what a wonderful week-end I had. Back to work on Monday. We are having our last registration of this school year starting yesterday until next week so I was pretty busy yesterday. Wore out last night too. We had storms last night and heavy rains. Yesterday was in the 70s again until the rain moved in. This morning it was 62 but a cold front came in and dropped us down to 37 this afternoon and had some snow flurries. Still having a few this evening too. What happenned to Spring? And now they are trying to make us believe that we are going to have a big snow on friday. Yeah Right. If they predict it, well it never happens, but I am hoping it doesn't. I am ready to get Mom well and home and do some gardening. My hands are itching to play in the dirt.
Please continue to pray and send positive thoughts this way for my Mom's recovery. She still has a ways to go.
I hope every one is doing well and having a great week so far. My thoughts are with you all!!!

Hello! I love your blog and check every day to see if you've updated it. Could you please tell me the name of the antique/junk store in Dickson? I live close to Dickson and would love to check it out!

Thanks!

Oh Bethy! It was so much fun running around with you on Sunday! I too think your mom looks great. You should see my "har" if I'm not feeling up to snuff! That red bird (as we call them in ol' Virginny) is gorgeous! Did you make a wish before he flew away? (Don't forget to raise your feet when you cross railroad tracks and say your love's name! Us Yankees and our superstitions, ha!) I was so happy to see the pair of robins at your house on Saturday. A sure sign spring is right around the corner (another VA 'thang). Glad to hear Lottie is better day by day. Yay! Big hugs my friend!
PS Was the name of the place Yesterday's Treasures?

It's so good to see the photos of your mom. I think she looks great. And I like her hair even if she doesn't! Having a friend like Rosemary must make things a little easier to handle. It does do a lot of good to get out and have some fun and it sounds as if you two did.

You can be absolutely sure that I'll keep you and your mom in my thoughts. Big (((hugs))) for you both

Sounds like you guys had a GREAT day together! I loved all of the pix! I've gotta tell you, I think your mom's hair looks really cute and hip (does anyone say hip anymore?) in that picture! In fact, when I saw it, that was the first thing I was going to write -- I really love her hair! And then I read she didn't like her hair that way! You tell her she has at least one fan of that "do" (which may not be a "do," but...) It's cute!

Meanwhile, glad you are having fun, and while I know she's still having trouble, it's good to see her looking good and on the mend. Must be a huge relief for you, too!
Give her a hug from me!

Your mom looks like she is doing well. I have to agree with Jeanie. I thought her hair was cute. Glad you had fun this weekend. Sending prayers your way.

Oh how lovely to see your mom looking so well! And those pesky cardinals just don't sit for portraits well at all, but we know how they are!

Thanks for sharing the fotoz of Lottie. She is looking great. Oh so pink! Tee hee...... I read your whole post, a rarity for me. I'm not a big reader, but I wanted to catch up. I wish I could see a real cardinal. Never have! Sad...

Hugs, Maryellen

Hello dear Beth:-) I'm finally catching up with everybody today...seems I have more time to visit on weekends than during the week! Loved seeing those pictures of you, Rosa and your mom...what a fabulous day you all had and I so wish that I could go to that antique shop with both of you! My favourite places to visit:-) Spring is still a long way from arriving over here...we still have tons of snow and it's so frigid out today, I didn't dare go out. With the windchill it was -18F!! Hope your weekend is going well and know that my prayers are still with your mom...I'm so glad that she's improving every day:-) xoxo
