Just taking a few moments to blog while mom is taking her nap. Nancy went home last night and arrived safely and is now enjoying a much needed and well deserved weekend with her husband after being down here taking care of mom for 2 weeks. I am in awe of Nancy's hard work with mom, I honestly think she missed her calling, she would have made a great therapist! I only hope I can be as good as she is when it comes to taking care of mom once she is living with us.
Took the opportunity to snap a shot of mom resting peacefully this morning after we made a very quick trip to the local Walmart. She is doing so much better at getting up and down from her couch whereas a few weeks ago when I was here she couldn't get back up from the couch alone because her legs were so weak.
Nancy got a ton of goodies to work with mom on her fine motor, memory and physical skills. Little by little we are getting her back stronger and better but it is very challenging. A small 24 piece puzzle can present difficulty to someone who has recently had a seizure much less has brain cancer so we work with mom on even the smallest things like this to try to get her better. She completed the puzzle with moderate help from me and we will try it again later and see how she does with the same puzzle.
Jesse was able to get a shot of mom's bed in her room that was delivered today, I think it looks great and the height is going to be perfect because as you can see we got a 'low profile' boxspring for her. I can hardly wait to put the sheets and bedspread on it and attach my headboard and see how it all looks.
