We are getting somewhat back to normal DD and I.. I made a small pot of goulash last night, we went to my birthday dinner today for lunch. I chose Famous Dave's.. We were fairly good girls.. I ordered steamed broccoli and coleslaw for the sides, we had corn on the cob, ribs, pulled pork, roasted chicken. It is a platter family style.. We brought more food home than we ate there.. Muffins, chicken, slaw, broccoli, pulled pork, corn. I love leftovers so I do not have to cook!!

Just walked in the door and moms home called to say she has no output today and won't get out of bed. I am not allowed to visit, so I told them to tell her that I order them to get her up in the wheelchair if she is too weak to use her walker, get her to drink anything,, since she has been on Keflex since Saturday, I know she just needs to get up and at 'em.

I am hoping they will lift the visiting ban by the weekend so I can get her moving myself.. she has led a princess's life with no illness or inconvenience, so any little thing that requires any effort from her is devastating to her.. Tuff noogies...
DD calls me the drill sergeant and I intend to review the troops this weekend.. yes, I am feeling better,,
My mother would die if she ever had to endure the pain Dd and I do on a daily basis, I have zero patience for her laziness and she knows it,,she usually gets up and doing what I tell them to make her do, before I even get there..

    Glad you're both feeling well enough to finally enjoy your birthday.
You are showing your mother 'tough love' and she will be the better for it.

    I am Happy to hear you are both doing better.
I was happy to read you were able to go to your Belated Birthday dinner. Sounds like a lot of food, so you can be well fed and able to take it a bit easier.
We too have the big chill here in Maine. It should move out by the weekend. It will probably warm up to snow by the weekend.
I feel sure your MOM will be behaving herself once she knows you are out to make her see a little sense. I hope so. Take care, Pat in Maine.

    Mmmmm sounds like a great birthday treat and the best part is the leftovers and no cooking on your part!

Glad you are getting back to "normal".

My step-dad has been in the hospital for congestive heart failure and could use a good drill sarge. Wanna volunteer? He thinks he has to do the opposite of whatever he is told.

    Oh, the birthday dinner sounds soooo good. I have never been to Dave's, and we have one not far from us. That's good your keeping on top of your Mom's situation. Remember the Divo song? Crack that Whip. Just popped into my brain lol.

    Your dinner sounds yummers. Sounds like you have enough left overs for days on end.

LOL at you being called the Drill Sargent. I believe it!
