After the general surgeon's appointment we headed to Tim Horton's for brunch. We were 1/2 way finished when our friend, Rosemary, arrived! Talk about timing! Mom had gotten a tuna wrap and a donut, but for some reason, this time she didn't like her tuna wrap. I went and got her a muffin so she could have that. While I was in line, our other friends came in for their snacks. I spoke to them for a few minutes. Apparently, they asked Ossana (the cashier) how we were doing and found out Mom had been so ill earlier this month. As they were leaving, they made a point to come and tell Mom that they were glad she is feeling better and home again. How sweet was that? I thought it was pretty awesome. We have such good friends around us.
Then from Tim Horton's we headed straight over to Heather B-T's house. Callie, as usual for the lovely young lady, came out of the house as we were walking up to the door. She loves helping Mom in and out of the house. She has such compassion for a 10 year old. I foresee her compassion just growing and growing as she gets older. She is such an amazing girl, simply amazing. Acer was still resting when we arrived. After we had been there a while, he woke up and joined us downstairs. He and I read a couple of books together. One of his favorite books he knows by heart. Reminds me of Andrew and I when we were that age. Mom would read to us and if she missed a word, we would let her know it. Kind of funny to think about now. Acer also has a couple of musical books that are really cool. Each page has a song that goes with it and you play the song on the side of the book. I did manage to get a couple of rows of knitting done while I was there. Not too much, but some. Someday, Mom's scarf will get finished. I am just sure when it will get done. I do have until the wintertime to finish it.
We are just relaxing now. Mom is a bit tired. She has already asked to go to bed. I asked her to stay awake a bit longer because it is so early right now. it is only 630 pm. I don't really like her to go to bed earlier than 8 pm otherwise she is up so early the next morning and that is not a good thing for either one of us.
The new plan for nighttime is working well. I put a bed liner underneath her. She doesn't need it for the lining part, but I don't like her to close the edge of the bed. So I put the liner underneath her and then I can move her into the center of her bed. It has worked really well since we started two nights ago. I also tuck a pillow under one side of her back and side so she is not completely on her back at night. This way the pressure is not completely on her pressure sore. We don't need that to get worse, we need it to improve.
I have a bad headache now, it started this morning, improved some, then came back during dinner. I had to take a pain pill to help it go back to the normal headache. I do ache a bit more today than normal, I am not sure why. It isn't humid or too cold or too hot out today, so I am at a bit of a loss of why I ache so much.
It is beautiful out today despite the extra pain. We have had a great day today. I hope you had a great day too. Happy July the first!!!
