Mum's home

Well, I picked Mum up at 10:30 this morning. It was POURING with rain...I mean POURING. Figures. She got a ride down from the 6th floor in a wheelchair, which worked out well because she was the packhorse, carrying her flowers and stuff.

She is doing remarkably well...very little pain and she is slowly starting to eat again. The worst part for her is having to sit still. Mum is NOT a sitter. In her own words just now as I helped her into bed, "This sucks. IT SUCKS!!!"

My boys came to visit tonight. We ordered pizza and it was so nice to be together again...I haven't been with them all for more than an hour since Sunday afternoon, so our time together tonight was nice. I hated saying good-bye. I will see them either tomorrow or at the latest, Saturday and they all have school tomorrow, so I guess it's not THAT bad.

I had the day off work today, knowing Mum was coming home. I am working from here tomorrow and will be working from here for most of next week as well, depending on how she is doing.

A busy day today...only now, as I sit and relax, do I realize how much I did today. I'm wiped.

Last night, I talked to my friend, Kate, for four hours and forty-three minutes. We hung up at 1:00 am. Kate has been there for me each and every time I've needed her. We have had our ups and downs, but I am so blessed with her friendship. I had a fantastic conversation with her husband, Ian, as well. He is a fascinating man, so fullof knowledge and passion for his faith. Thank you Kate and Ian for being there for me. :o) Pin It
