Things are still going well!!

Hello Everyone -

Mom still doesn't have her internet connection yet and asked me to keep updating everyone. I called her today and she still sounds very upbeat. Her appetite has returned full force and the food in The Terrace Estates sounds absolutely yummy. She particularly likes the FOUR PERCENT milk as she keeps telling me. Unlike myself, she loves milk and it has been a long long time apparently since she had 4% milk.
She is also enjoying that Dub is getting up at 7 in the morning and going to get breakfast with her. Thanks to those who are leaving her comments. She will enjoy reading them when she gets back to business here in her blog world.
For the first time since April she is finally not focused on all the things that are wrong with her body...for those of you who know her, you know that was totally out of character. Other than an occasional cold, I have never really known her to be sick before. She said that she started her physical therapy today and she is getting her hair done tomorrow. They have a hair stylist that works there from Mon - Fri...pretty cool, huh? I would love that part. I hate dragging myself hair appointments. When she is done she says doesn't it look wonderful and I always say...if you could just fix the face now...lol.
Anyway...as I told Mom...this is all GREAT news. We can't wait to see her totally healthy again. Keep the prayers coming...

It is so good to hear how they are doing and that they like it where they are. The food sounds good. I like milk, too. Wish I could get my hair done that way with an in the house stylist! I am glad she is feeling better and focusing on wellness now. We miss her but want only the best for them both. We will be here when she is ready to return to blogging. She is in my thoughts and prayers.

Thanks for the update. I miss seeing her posts. I was hoping I could drop by and see her sometime this summer. Do they let them have company at the assisted living facility? And what about a card. Could you send me the address? My e-mail is crochetclara@charter.net I am glad she is improving.

I talked to Mom this morning. They're enjoying their 3-squares a day, she's continuing to enjoy the food and eating well. She AND Dub are getting physical therapy now, home health is coming every day, and the nurse is changing the dressing on her "wound" for her. This certainly is "what the doctor ordered" and we thank God for getting this all worked out for them! He truly does know just how much we can bear, and He does make all things work out for good for those who love Him. She sounded chipper and happy.
