Fluffy here with overdue report,….
Things have been pretty hectic the past ten days. So much confusion with all the nurses coming and going. I follow Mommy all around our house and take care of her. But she was downstairs walking few days ago and she decided to try to do steps out front. Susie and Julie were with her. But suddenly her bad leg buckled under her and she fell!
We sure didn’t need that after what we’ve been thru! Susie and Julie couldn’t get her up into the wheelchair. But luckily a really nice young man working in Bldg 5 came. He put his arms around under Mom’s arms and clasped them in front of her and he told her to clasp hers on top of his and in one swift movement he had her straight up and into her wheel chair. They decided he must have had paramedic training. He really rescued Mom. Then last night Mommy went to find something In her closet and she left her walker at the door. Next thing she was calling for Susie. She fell again. We are really watching her now. And the doctor is getting strict. She’s been thru so much we are forbidden to upset her. So Rennie and I have to be friends for her sake. She was however very upset her friend Nonie De Limur died.
Ladys who spends nights with us really makes her laugh. She has a heavy accent from Ecuador and talks very fast. I don’t understand her sometimes but Mommy and aunt Susie do.
Today we got a coffee maker and we had a Coffee Party. Mommy said Ecuadorian way of making coffee is like she gets in Paris. And we had whole wheat English muffins and scrambled eggs. Bob and Carol Jackson bring us fresh eggs every week from their fancy chickens. I can’t wait to tell Babji Mom ate a whole big breakfast. All her doctors have been worried because she wouldn’t eat. But Ladys makes it fun.
Well guess that’s our news for now.
Most important thing is doctors have found pills that control Mom’s horrendous pain. And she is laughing again.
