Below, big sister, little brother. So precious!
Below, little Andy is about 11 months old here, and Diana is almost three. "Daddy's Little Firecracker" has a birthday coming up on Saturday. Happy Birthday a little early, big sister. : )
Nothin' to write home about on this Wednesday, last week. This mirror hangs in my mom's livingroom. She told me that when the air conditioning comes on, that the mirror rocks just a bit on the wall and that she would like to find a solution.
Packing peanuts to the rescue. Hee-hee! I just happened to bring some packages with me on this day to get ready for the Post Office, so...the rest is history! Problem solved.
Yet another blood test to check Mom's iron and a couple of other things.
Always the good sport.
Well, there are big changes on the horizon for my mom. She had a little tumble (nothing too serious) in her apartment last week. Because of that and several other factors, my mom will be moving into a residential Home Care facility two houses down from my sister, who lives here locally by me. It will still only take me about 10 minutes to get over there. Mom's five children have known this was coming for some time now. We've been in conference with each other all week about the issue. She will live with four other elderly women in a beautiful, clean, organized home run by a wonderful Asian couple.
If I could enlist your prayers that things will go smoothly this week, it would mean very much to our family. I have not shared that my mother has Alzheimer's yet, because......I guess for lots of reasons. It hurts to even think about it. And it's not extremely bad yet, but we have watched it slowly progress over the last year and a half.
My Wednesdays With Mom will continue as before, with pix of what we do on those days. Thank you so much for your loving comments and interest in our sweet mom!
