Wipe Out ...

of both the signs, and my Mom. I have been walking by these for a week now, since I had to put her back in the hospital. When they disappear tonight everyone will know they are in my possession. Sorry ... I have to have them. And they have been laying there so long they belong to me.

Mom had to have surgery again. This time to correct an adhesion and collapse of her lower intestinal tract. I think I explained that correctly : ) She has had a terrible time but is on the mend again.

The Nurses wear the cutest outfits these days. This week I've seen Scooby Doo, Mister Potato Head, and a myriad of colors from hot hot hot pink to a turquoise blue that knocked my socks off. These awesome ladies work their butts off and all have a great attitude and sense of humor. When Mom sits in her chair I take the bed ... so yesterday when the Respiratory Therapist came in with the Nebulizer I told her I was her new patient. She smiled and said, "Cool". "Here is your enema"!

Mom has a touch a pneumonia ... that will get your attention. She has tons of antibiotic going into her, as well as morphine. Every once in a while she pushes her little black button for me. I wish ...


  1. I am so sorry to hear that she is back in the hospital. I pray that this time they get it all worked out and cleared up so that she can begin to enjoy her life once again!I also hope that you have been able to get to your favorite bookstore for some fortifying peace and reading matter. God bless your family!

  2. I'm sorry about your Mommy, my friend. I will pray for her. And for you.

  3. I hope your mom is on the mend so she can get out and enjoy the rest of the summer!
