We went to see mom today, and I have to say I am way surprised.
First off, she’s up and about. Mom seemed to be moving pretty well. She had showered and dressed. I saw her eat several things, including soups and solids. I was not prepared, however, for the amount of swelling in her neck and jaw. Shocking. I think it is fair to say I had no poker face when I saw her, and I regret that. She just looked so unfamiliar to me. Also, her chest is quite bruised and I have no idea what went on to maker her wrist go purple from half-way to her elbow to her knuckles, but, wow! Poor baby. However, she says she doesn’t have too much pain. Mom is rejecting the pain medicine because she says it’s too strong and makes her feel weird. OK. Tylenol it is then.
I will be going back to see her Tuesday and then again on Thursday and Friday, which is her 70th birthday.
The girls behaved really well, even though Granny looked a bit strange. But then again so did their daddy, who got a severe haircut today. With his hair so short, Tony really looks like Saralyn, or vice versa.
