10 LONG Days ....Just arrived home this Evening,.... Aww I am thrilled to be HOME AGAIN

Hello all!

Just a quick check in... Just this evening I arrived back, home. It has been a long 10 days down at my parent’s home. At first, it was difficult...
with my mom. She does not like things to change at all. She was pretty sick too from the meds. Her operation went well... it was those meds which changed my mom and her moods and she was terrible for a long while... she fight me and my dad every inch.. of the way, and was no type of help.

Days of trying to get her bad mood better over her breaking her ankle and leg. Yes we find she did all of that... and has two plates and screws in her ankle and then she broke the bone up from her heel. Yet as each day went to the next...I pointed out how she
will get through all of this, and to be grateful too, as she could have been
going to a nursing home, as they felt dad would not be able to care for her.
That is why I am here mom, I would try to tell her, to help dad, and to help
her. Finally, though, she did see things differently and we still have many
more weeks of this. The worse part of
it is over....and she is doing rather well now.
I felt I could go home for a break. She is off of the meds... and my mommy is coming back to her good old self again. Smiling again...... and one morning she told me, you are so right I am going to have my life back soon...so I am grateful for that.

I feel so happy myself to be back home. Home is where your stuff is. I will be going down to help every other day. Mom did come along fine
as we finally had her see, she needed to help us. Once she found she could pull
herself up with a walker, and get up from the wheel chair and get from one spot to another really on her own,
with my dad or I as spotters...so she would not fall... it all got so much
easier. I will let my dad have a break every other day. I needed to come home
after the 10 days. It was all day and all night stuff... and sad to say never
once did I get to do any quilting. I did push myself... and I am worn out..... yet now it will be smoother. 9 more weeks of this!!!!!!!! I feel great though.... tonight to be home! A Happy Late Easter to everyone!

Also a special prayer for my very dear friend BJ, Barb.... who shared in this past year with me all these wonderful stories of her dad. I felt sad and sort of touched, when I came home to read he passed on. I felt I knew him, and that he was a wonderful man who had helped so many in his time. I know it will be difficult for her and her family.... and my prayers go out to her and her family.

Now that I will be coming home every other day ....I do plan to ...Quilt... on my days off here...and then when I am down there...with my parents I will give them all the help I

I do wish all of you lots of fun quilting away! If I ever get any progress on my quilt I shall post it. I know I will!! I want to thank you all for your prayers, and good wishes before I left to go down to the parents. It meant so much to me.

Hugs Morgan

Glad to see you are back and mom is progressing. How blessed they are to have you. I have been thinking of you and continue to pray for a quick recovery.

Hi Thanks for all of your comments.... To answer a couple questions....... its an hour and half drive to my parents...... yes the puppy is right in the middle of all the hard times. She is so cute... so spoiled by my parents. It was the pain meds that made my mom wacky. Thank you all... I am trying to get to my sewing room.... but had to sit and pay the bills first. Maybe now..... Hugs to you all! Hugs Morgan

Morgan, I was thinking about you yesterday & wondering how things were going for your mom. I think it makes it worse when a parent is not normally a difficult person to deal with as you would not be used to that. I'm happy to hear that your mom is getting back to being her normal cheerful self. I was thinking that if they were giving her steriods that is probably what caused her moods to be what they were. Just take care of yourself and get some quilting done. It is the perfect solution for stress!
