Ten years. It doesn't seem possible that Dad has been gone for that long. I miss him so much. Mom seems less whiffty today. Yesterday she kind of scared me because when I called she said she was confused and didn't know where she was. But I think that I had awakened her from a nap.

I hope so. The neurologist's office called today to move Mom's appointment to earlier in the day because the doctor has something she has to do. That means that the R.N. won't be able to meet us. Pooh.

I really like this new blog layout. Cool.
