ODE TO MOTHERS
Funny by Kristin F. McKendall

Mothers cannot do it all
But surely do they try.

Mothers hear the angel's call,
To comfort all who cry.

Mothers for themselves may fall,
For others they will fly.

Mother's bear the weight of all,
For their children, they would die.

A Mother's gift extends beyond
All bounds of time and space.

Her lovingness and nurturing
Make Earth a peaceful place.

Update on my mom

I have many Spark friends ask me about an update on my mom, and I can honestly say I am surprised and happy by her progress since I was there. She is back to the nursing home, moved to another floor as she requires alot more care.

However she has gone from the confused lady to one that sounds alot more like she was before she had her set back. I am able to phone her and carry on a conversation with her. She still must have all her food pureed and she tells them she won't eat it because it is dog food, I know if we could get her to eat better she could build up her strength.

She tells me her caregivers and nurses all treat her well, and this is comforting for me. I'd hate to think she was being abused.

Tomorrow my sister is to sit down with the nursing home and some of mom's doctors and get a more detailed report as to how she is doing. I really hope they decide to start her back on normal food.

Thanks for all your concern and care, all your prayers and comforting thoughts.

    SO HAPPY TO HEAR THIS NEWS BARBARA!!! I WILL KEEP HER IN MY PRAYERS:) TOO BAD THEY CAN'T GIVE HER THINGS THAT ARE SOFT, BUT MORE LIKE REAL FOOD LIKE, COUSCOUS, CREAM OF WHEAT FLAVORED WITH CHICKEN BROTH/JUICE, SWEET AND REGULAR POTATOES....HOPEFULLY SOON, I WOULD HATE PUREED STUFF TOO! CAN SHE HAVE SOMETHING LIKE ENSURE?

    Well, it sounds like she is back to where she was. I sometimes wonder if my mother-in-law wouldn't be happier if she WASN'T in such good health. She is tired of how this crazy world is going.

PROS:

- get off my medication for diabetes and high blood pressure

- no problem doing up my seatbelt on the airplane

- go into clothing store and buy something that looks good on me

- be able to sit in any chair

- be able to fit in booths at restaurant

- go anywhere without stares from people

- to feel comfortable in my body


CONS

- exhausted all the time

- having to take medication

- ask for seat belt extension on airplane

- have to wear something because it's the only thing that fits

- look in mirror and hate what I see

- feet hurt, back hurts, legs hurt, knees hurt etc.

- feeling miserable 24-7

Just a few reasons why I need to get healthy

    Just cross all those cons right off your list and only think about the pros. But you did bring up something that I have been wondering about. Are the seat belts in the back seat actually smaller?
