Thoughts about Mom

I went to visit Mom before leaving for Iowa to visit Britton over Easter weekend on March 23rd.
She had just had two teeth pulled that morning and was in pain. But handling it well. We had a good visit. She was laying in bed but dressed. Her hair looked nice.
The nurses call me about every week now - did tonight - that she has fallen. They have started using a wheelchair some today. When she fell today it was while she was using her walker.
She is still sleeping alot and only getting about one meal a day. But, she is maintaining her weight.
As I told Sharon and Trish; I thank God and feel blessed that she still knows us. That is a big thing.
I took her a picture of Oscar and Edna's 57th Anniversary that their children had for them.
