Learning how to find the hours in the day to do everything that has to be done when the other member of the household is non-mobile is proving a bit more challenging than expected. I’m not complaining. Mom’s always been there for me and I am happy to return the favor. But I didn’t add in the time necessary to get both of us ready for her post-op appointment with her surgeon this morning into the grand scheme of things. I’m already running later than I wanted to be. So, regretfully, I will be posting late morning to early afternoon. Again, my apologies.
But, for the good news. Mom is doing much better than either of us had any right to expect. She is a little more than a week shy of turning 91 and each day finds her stronger and able to do more than the day before. I’ll admit, she overdid it yesterday, mainly out of boredom. The contractor was here to raise the floor in the den and that took all day. That meant she was confined to her room–with the animals–for close to 10 hours. So she decided that was a good time to try walking more. She’s paying for it some this morning. Which is why I need to wrap this up because pain means she moves more slowly.
Do me a favor. You guys came up with some great suggestions last week. Let’s keep it up. Give me an idea or two about what you’d like me to blog about. Ask questions (writing related, please). I’ll do my best to answer as many as possible and then get to the others later.
Until then. Thanks for your patience.
