    Well, we had the party Saturday as planned.  Everyone who said were coming did and each brought a dish of some sort.  We had the best potato salad I've ever tasted, can't even tell what was in it, gotta get the recipe.  When I do I'll share it wit...

    on Jul 22, 2009
    We are sitting outside, Mom and I, for her daily dose of vitamin D and some fresh air.  It's so cute how she loves to look around her beautiful yard and to hear her comment on everything she sees. A bird is in the birdfeeder that hangs in our orange...
  • Stress = Spontaneous Combustion???
    on Jul 16, 2009
    This happens to be a day that Mom is willing to get in the shower.  No excuses and it was definitely time for one.  I don't remember the last time she would take one, probably a week ago.  Maybe a few days more, I'm not sure.  I ought to document...

  • My Sinking Heart
    on Jul 9, 2009
    Mom is sitting next to me in her chair in front of the television - asleep - as she has been a lot lately.  It saddens me because I know the increase in sleeping is probably due to a lack of oxygen to her brain.  The meds she takes has a bit to do...
  • Worry, Guilt, Stress
    on Jul 9, 2009
    It happens that my twenty six year old son lives with my mother and I, thank goodness.  If he weren't here to stay with his grandmother while I do the shopping, run errands, or even go play pool for a little while.  If it weren't for him I'd never...
