Mom...

Just a quick little post here....
It has been an exhausting few days with Dad... Visits to hospital, picking up stuff, lack of sleep from worry, meeting Dad's needs, and dealing with Mom's impatient state right now...
In all this though, Mom is doing as well as can be expected... Her pain is being managed, she was still somewhat nauseous from the meds yesterday, and we haven't seen her out of bed yet...
Mom's never stayed in a hospital for anything in her life other than childbirth, so this IS an experience for her, as well as the rest of us... Mom is a doer, fast mover and somewhat of an impatient lady, so this is really hard for her to deal with...

I managed to get to one of my quilt groups last night cause my brother and SIL took my dad for sup and the evening, so that was a nice break for me. Thanks T and L! 8-)
I am still planning to quilt my Sunflower quilt tomorrow, since Mom doesn't want company during the day anyway...
God help me! 8-)

Sorry no time or head for blog visits right now...
Happy stitchings all, and know that I am cheering those in the PhD Challenge on... Go team! 8-)

I know where you are coming from. It is such a stressful - emotionally AND physically - period for you. Just know that this is where you are meant to be right now and there is an end down the road. Wishing you peace with lots of prayers.

Don't you worry about us Myra! You just keep up with what's important right now, and that's your mother and your family. You know we'll all be right here when you are ready. Take care,

It's sometimes a challenge to keep everyone in the family entertained! Sounds like you're doing OK by sharing some duties with your brother - that's a great way to do it. Hope your quilting plans work out for you tomorrow . . . a little sanity sewing. - Marlene
