My Babies

Here are some pictures of the room. It's really cute and has a small sun porch. Right now there is an armoire in the middle of the room from the previous occupant. The room and the sun porch look out over the woods and a courtyard with a fountain. I'm told that all sorts of wildlife can be seen from this room. I'm torn. I really like the vibe in the two facilities that I've heard from. Oh what to do?

It was sunny and near 60 today. Everyone has spring fever. I saw people wearing shorts and flip flops, the proverbial first sign of spring in Minnesota. Tomorrow Mom has a dental appointment in the morning after which I'm going to try to do something fun with her, she deserves it now that spring is here.

Most exciting news today? The purple slipper was returned with the lift. It's about 3/4 inches higher than the right slipper and Mom does seem to be more even now when she walks. This is good news.

Finally, I've included a picture of our kitties, eating their dinner side by side. Who'd have thought this would ever happen?

The return of the slipper, and a more "even heeled" Mom!

Feline cusine in blissful peace!

You are on a roll, Robyn! :)

I certainly do not wish on anyone the decision that you face. It does look (and sound from your description) like a nice place! What input are you receiving from your siblings about placing Mom?

Thinking of you and keeping you in prayer.

Looks like a very nice place, Robyn. I don't envy your decision. I'd be feeling pretty torn, too.

Nice to see the babies enjoying their meal!

Thank Cin! Sister thinks a move is overdue. She wants me to get my life back. Brother is fine with whatever is decided.

Rick and Betsy, it's a great place, very nice. Mom is going to think that everyone is loonier than her though. The room is really nice. I'm back and forth on this. But like Rick said the sooner the better so she can get some benefits from it.

This looks and sounds like a nice place, Robyn. I'm sure whatever you decide will be the right thing for both your mom and you. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

Hi Nancy, They want to know by Monday. I've been thinking a lot about this and I'm just leaning toward waiting.

Nine Years and Counting

Mom has been gone for a little over nine years. This blog was a huge mechanism for helping me cope with her illness and daily downfall. I...
