The last news about my Mom is she has started trying to talk, finally. She is one tough cookie, my Mom. Her sounds are not clear, but my Dad said that he and she were communicating a bit. Medically she is improving. In the mirror I see how grief sticken looks on a face after 18 months, that is how long since her original stroke. I have a cucumber in the freezer for that double eye treatment. I took one day off from crying and talking with anyone about it. It has slowed me down alot, the grief. But yesterday my son and I went to his dental treatments and so forth. Nothing has been smooth or on target. I have the things that need to go in the mail, not the address. I leave the house and in it my purse. Our phone minutes are all used. This has never happened befor. I had cut my home phone among other non-essentials so that I could cover the dental treatment costs fully confident based on how little I use the phone and then .... Plus while doing all these calls I heated up the phone so much the battery buckled the back of the phone. Hopefully the documents going to the ed att will be helpful. I have errands and then I, myself, am going to have a few hours of down time befor the next session of family therapy. Hope everyone is having a good day. And with it your own purse or wallet where you like it and need it most.
