Terrific Tuesday !!!
What a wonderful day yesterday ... Mom had a wonderful doctor's appointment, and got to spend time with her kids ... She was in such a happy place when we left yesterday ... Dr K took her totally off of her warfarin .. and just told her to take the baby aspirin .. That sent mom off the end of the world .. He also gave yet another option for her knee, but we all agreed to wait ... to continue taking the glucosamine, and wait until the gel has a chance to work (a couple weeks is what the doctor had said ).. .but he gave us more options regarding the problem with her knee .. if this doesn't work .. :)
As far as taking her off of her warfarin, he explained that with her falling so regularly; he's afraid of her hitting her head; and creating an immediate bleed .. He said that usually by 85, people are taken off of blood thinners, because of their age and chances of falling increase 10fold ..He did tell us the challenges of taking her off as well .. But I was very pleased with dealing with the doctor .. this is the one that he and I have a bit of a personality conflict .. but he is good with mom ..
She was really impressed with me .. because he asked date questions, and perscription questions .. and I had the answers .. Daddy would be proud of my note taking .. lol lol lol ..
As well as that .. she's got control of her muscles again .. in regards to her incontinence ... (baby steps) .. don't know where that came from, but I'm sooo proud of her !!!! Slowwwwly slowwwwwly ..
She gave me a couple of nature calendars, with some awesome photos .. for my drawings .. and I found one that I'm attempting .. I got the scribbles done last night before bed, but couldn't hold my eyeballs open anymore .. I'm stepping into a new dimension .. and trying a picture with background .. :) Wish me luck !!!! May take me a bit longer than a day on this one.. Ice and snow background .. hmmmmmmmmmm
The ice is going to be my challenge .. The snow I'm thinking may just be reverse shading like with white fur .. Yup -- this is a whole new dimension for my drawings ...
My ultimate goal is to get back to where I was "way back when" .. however, I didn't do color back then .. but did do action ..
and they were done to teach myself to focus .. it was during a troublesome time in my life .. but without going back to that story again ..
So --that is on my plans for today .. Hubby offered to take me out to lunch .. Taco bell has a free $5 chalupa box; and we're going to give that a try .. :) I like chalupa's .. :)
I also want to make fresh hummer mix, and hubby some chipdip, and there's a package of ground meat in the fridge .. not sure what that's going to turn into .. maybe sloppy sally's .. :) but that is pretty much in my plans for today .. a nice quiet day ... yup -- that sounds good ..
Play up in my playroom, and work on mom's "books" .. getting them all cleaned up again ..after a few days of check and run's ..
So -- listening to the weather it sounds like it's a good day to play in the house .. lol lol ..
I'm happy to say that when we got home yesterday; and down into the garage it was grey and yuck outside, but by the time we got mom and the groceries upstairs, it was blacker than black and windy .. (even the parking lot light turned on) .. Someone was watching over us ..
Wishing everyone a wonderful day .. be safe, be strong, be smart, and be healthy !!!! :)
