Image from Alfred Hitchcock’s “Lifeboat”. I love his movies!
It would appear that I, like my Mom, am going through some adjustments with the new situation. Since I don’t live in the same city obviously I can’t stop by and see how she is doing. I am pretty much dependent on emails and phone calls from my brothers for updates. I used to be able to talk to my Mom on the phone but at this point she is either not in her room or is confused about how to answer a cordless phone. My Mom never adapted to the new fangled cordless phones.
I have worried myself sick about the fact that my Mom might not walk on her own again. I think she has gotten weaker as time has passed and the fall, compression fractures and pneumonia have definitely taken a toll. I have to laugh because two of my very good friends, with Mom’s the same age, told me they would rather their Mom’s be in a wheelchair (who knew). It’s good to have friends in the same lifeboat to put things in perspective.
My husband, sons, and four legged friends have been very supportive and letting me just cry. It is what it is.
I’m kind of excited about a new napkin fold I found on the internet! I will post it tomorrow after I purchase a new can of spray starch.
