Hi everyone! :) Jill's here, yeah! She arrived late as her plane was sitting on the runway in Detroit. They told them it was due to "paperwork" but someone with a laptop on the plane looked it up and it said "unscheduled maintenance." Anyhoo....she arrived.
Mom was thrilled to see Jill.:) She put her hand out and they held hands. Very cool sight.
Jill and I spent the day organizing jewelry. It took hours! Mom has a huge jewelry collection fit for a queen...because she is a queen! I also cleaned the master bathroom and vanity.
Now I'm pooped and getting ready for bed. I need to be at the airport by 6 a.m. for my 8 a.m. flight home. I miss my boyfriend Dave TONS. My kitties? Not so much. I love them but this is the first trip I've taken where they have someone (Dave) to love em' feed em' pet em' and be there the whole time so they are in great hands.
How's mom today?
Not so hot. Today was a rough one for her. She's having difficulties getting up out of bed. She barely has the strength to get up. Dad will ask next week if we can get an adjustable bed from hospice for her. He'll also get someone to bathe her twice weekly as she will not be able to get into the tub. Her legs are too weak to hike up over the tub.
Jill put Barbara Streisand in a CD player and put it on her bed. We left to organize jewelry and could hear her sing to it every once in a while. That made our day. :) She's still eating well so that's a good sign. This will be my last blog entry for this trip.
Take care everyone. Keep the prayers coming for a peaceful and painless rest of the journey for mom. She has very limited time left on earth. Also pray for dad as he is the most incredibly strong and loving man I've ever met!
Love to you all, Lori
