We, of course, are in the midst of a winter snowstorm today. Still, I was able to drive the 3 miles to visit Mom this morning. Mom was the same, sleeping with not so much wailing today. I fed her nearly all of her lunch and her dessert. She was directing me with what she wanted to eat and when she wanted to eat it.

I pasted pictures of her kitty near her bed and added the collage that I had made to that same wall. I hope that in some way these comfort her.

Driving was treacherous. I hit an icy patch on the highway and thought for sure I was going to rear end the car in front of me. The anti lock brakes kicked in and since I wasn't going very fast, I averted a crash. We are definitely having a white Christmas here.

Thinking of you and your Mom today. Hang in there, Robyn!

I'm so glad you took kitty pics to your mom. I think she will really appreciate them!

Yes, the snow is pretty but I am not one for driving in it. We have too many hills in Pittsburgh to be able to stop on snow or ice. It makes me a nervous wreck.

We're also having a white and ICY Christmas here too, the roads are covered with thick ice; I'm lucky enough to stay inside and not to worry about driving yet. But hope to make the two doctors' appointment on Tuesday, the ones that got cancelled last week.
Take care Robyn and Merry Christmas to both of you.
