Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Ice cream for supper

The last two days we've spent at the hospital.  My mom's progress with rehab is going very slowly but we have seen a little improvement.  She's not in pain anymore at least.  She still is confused at times and the Alzheimer's has gotten worse since she's been in the hospital.  She should be at the rehab close to where they live by Monday.  Don't know how long she will be there, just taking things a day at a time.

We are leaving to go back home tomorrow.  It's been a long week but so glad that we were able to be here for both of her operations and to leave knowing she is stable and slowly improving.  There were a couple of times there that I thought I was saying good bye to her.  We just have to take it a day at a time and know that God is in control.

My step-dad, Ken and I found a great little ice cream place down the road and we went there this evening and had ice cream sundaes for supper. : ) 

Well I guess that's about it.  The next time I post I'll be back home.

A happy day to you all.

  1. Thinking of you!! Glad your mom is improving!

  2. Ice cream for supper! Would your mother approve?!?!

  3. It is good to know that your mother is improving, though it is a slow process. Ice cream sundaes for supper sounds like a great idea! Safe travels as you return home. Hugs!

  4. Life's short; Eat dessert first! Love the thinking behind that. It is wonderful that you were able to be so supportive both for your mom and for your step-dad. A blessing for you all. I am glad that you will be home celebrating Easter with your home church family. God is good. All the time.

  5. I am so glad to hear that Mom is improving,at least some. DO take care of yourself,so you don't wear out.

  6. Best wishes to your mom! And ice cream can be a fine meal!

  7. It might only be small steps for your mother but it is all progress :) I'm pleased she is doing so well.
    Have a happy Resurrection Sunday.


  8. Perhaps slow progress but she did have two operations, after all, and neither is an easy recovery. Very glad (and reassuring) that you are seeing improvement in your mom. :-)

    Ice cream sundaes for supper sounds fun!

    May you have a safe journey home.


  9. Yum, ice cream for dinner! I am glad your Mom is making some progress..I will keep her in my prayers.. Happy Easter to you and your family.

  10. Glad to hear that your mom is improving. When I worked in a hospital and an old persons' home we would often see a sudden worsening of dementia due to medical ill health which then improved just as dramatically when the antibiotics started working.You may find that this is the case with your mom. I'm sure that simply having you there is a comfort to your mom and your dad.
    Have a safe journey and if asked to choose I'd pick a dessert over a main course any day. :)

  11. Glad to hear things are turning out well. Have a safe trip home and a relaxing weekend.

  12. I'm glad to hear that your mother is doing better, but it must be difficult for you to be so far away from her. Hope you had a afe trip home and have a nice Easter Sunday.

  13. I forgot: The Bible verse you quoted for me was one of a couple I relied on when I had breast cancer many years ago. Today, I will type up that one and a couple of other healing verses for my husband to have when he can read them. I will read them to him tomorrow. Thank you so much for all your support.

  14. I think you all deserved an ice cream supper after the week you've had. I'm glad your Mom is getting better.

  15. Karen, I am so thankful to know that your mom is doing well and making progress. Rehab can be very challenging, but as long as she is making progress (even if it is slow going) it will be good for her. I'm so glad you were able to be there with her and your step-dad through this whole ordeal. Praying the Lord is giving you a safe trip home today (Saturday).

    Glad to know you had ice cream for supper! :)


  16. Take good care of yourself. You've been through a lot of stress, too. Ice cream for dinner is just the ticket!

  17. So glad you were there to be with your Mom.Glad she is doing as well as expected... Hope the step-father is in good physical condition since he will have his hands full when she goes home...

    I know you will also be glad to get home...

    God Bless --and HAPPY EASTER.
    Christ is Risen. Alleluia.
