Mom update and a card...

...hey ya'll...just wanted to post an update on my mom. We went to see her today and according to her nurse...she's still the same only now she's off IV feeding and she's been feeding her applesauce with pain meds since they don't want to keep her all hocked up on morphine and asleep. They want her awake and moving some. This time I was actually a bit stronger because she recognized me being there as oppose to last time she had no idea. I saw her eat thru her mouth and that alone lifted a heavy weight off my heart. She even made me chuckle. So I was speaking to her and I say "Mom...do you know who I am?" and she shook her head 'yes'. So then I ask her..."so you can hear me?" and then she nodded 'no'...so me being the brat I am I said..."so you only want to hear what YOU want huh?" and she kind of smiled and shook her head 'yes'! This woman...even when she's in pain and can't speak because she's still too weak she STILL has that humor inside her. Her nurse said that hopefully tomorrow they'll have their first try at physical therapy and have her try to at least stand. I'm praying for a good outcome on that. I took a few pictures of her I wanted to share. The first one is of her when we first got there, the second is her with my dad and the last one is before we left. You can kind of tell in the second one she was in pain in how she's pursing her lips. Needless to say my dad was a mess. I had (and still have) to explain why she's in the hospital. He's been a handful to care for at home...all I hear from my brother and sister is...just be patient! Yeah...easier said than done and I know MANY of you out there know how hard that is. I thank God everyday for all your prayers though as I'm seeing the results from it. I'm taking care of myself...it hard to do but I'm trying...so thank you all for your comments of concern...LOVE YA BUNCHES!

Ok...so I promised last post I would show you the cute owl card right...well I just wanted to update first as he's not alone...he has 3 brother/sister cards that go along with the explanation of THAT card. So for now...here is a card I made for an Easter swap over on Joani's Yuku group. (link over there--->).
