Yesterday was a nice day. I took a vacation day and went over to Moms house. I helped her get a shower and then styled her hair, she enjoyed that. It was a very pretty day yesterday so I planted some flowers for her. On Thursday I bought her some pretty baskets to hang on the wooden trellis over her front porch and then I planted impatients on both sides of the porch.
She was able to sit out on her front porch in her wheelchair for a while and watch me plant them. Then she got sleepy and I took her inside for nap. Around 1 p.m., my brother and his daughter came up from Alabama to see Mom. She was so happy to see them. We spent the whole afternoon together. Below is a picture of my brother and my sweet niece and Mom.
And then a pic of my brother, me and Mom.
Mom is feeling better. She is still on blood thinner and fluid pills. She is also on some strong pain meds. We are all hoping that she will continue to improve. We did find out that she now has a crack in a small bone in her back close to where they put in the pins and rods. But because she cannot have any more surgery they are going to try to use a brace that will emit a small electrical charge. She will have to wear it a couple of hours a day and it will help heal the crack. Then hopefully her pain will subside even more and she can come off of the pain med. We have to wait and see if her medical doctor and heart doctor will approve for her to use it.
Today was a cold and rainy day so I stayed in most of the day and did a little artsy stuff. Its been a while since I have got to play in the art room and it was nice.
I hope every one has been having a great week-end. And again,,Thanks so much for all the out pouring of Love that I have recieved during this past few weeks. You just never know how much it means to me. Its helped get me through some rocky times. Please keep my Mom in your thoughts and prayers as it sure seems to be helping.
