Hello Everyone!

It seems that I will not be getting a chance to have my life back as normal yet. My mom fell outside her house... chasing the puppy. She broke her foot and her ankle in two places. Yesterday they operated on her...
and with all of the meds...she has lost her marbles. Talking crazy like. She is mean, as a snake... and she will not
eat... we never have seen her like this before, and you can imagine just how upsetting
this is for my dad.

Oh! On Easter Sunday one year ago Jeff my son got his kidney....yet this year Easter Sunday is earlier. So we are celebrating both days. April 12th which was Jeff's day last year on Easter Sunday to get his kidney. It also was pretty much too when I had started here on this site too. Still so much is so wonderful......and we will get through this.

Here is my sweet mom.....who has really got herself into a mess right now!

Therefore after leaving the hospital yesterday, and returning home.... I find that I am going to have to move down to my parents to help out. She may be coming home today, and my dad cannot take care or lift her.
Nor can I. Yet with both of us, helping I am sure we will work it out. (9Weeks
she will have a cast on above her knee. I am sure things will get better with
the fact she will be getting off those pain pills soon that make her someone

I have to move all of my oxygen stuff, and so much to move down there. My Husband will come there when he comes home this week to help us out too. I will not be on for a bit more due to my dad does not have a service
for the net.
I will have to try to get on by using another system. (If you do not see me... I could not get

I am bringing down my hand quilting stuff. I am working on this Granny garden quilt, and I have plenty of appliquéing to do on that, which I can do down there. I hope that! My
poor mom, she is so lost right now. Scared.... We are sure hoping she comes
back to her normal state very soon. Any prayers please would be so grateful. I
am sure in time all will smooth out.

This is the quilt I am making!

Hugs to all of my quilting friends. Have fun piecing away! I love you all! Hugs Morgan

Hi Morgan, I don't get onto the main page very much anymore but decided to do so today. My mom (alzheimer victim) fell 1 1/2 years ago. Recently it got to the point where my sis couldn't lift her anymore out of a prone position. The doctor wrote out a script for a chair that does the lifting of the patient. Medicare helped some, but it sure did save on my sister's back. This just might help you and your dad. Hope so. You sure have your hands full....btw.....your Mom is simply beautiful....not to mention your project you are working upon. Take care now, Vanda/MI

I hope your Mom gets back to her wonderful self soon. It has to be so hard to see her this way; for you and for your dad. Take care my friend, God will provide the strength to do what you need. You know I'm praying for you all.
What a great celebration there will be for Jeff! What a wonderful miracle and blessing. Give him a big hug for me.

Oh, Morgan, that is so sad. Meds can sure be hard on people so I hope when they have her off some of them, she gets back to her normal happy self! Good luck with all this. Love your quilt by the way!

Morgan, sorry to hear about your poor Mom. How awful for her and for the family. Hope that she will be off the meds real soon and back to her normal self. How wonderful that Jeff has a year under his belt now. Wow, it sure doesn't seem that long that we were praying for him eh? How great is our God eh? Don't forget as you go down to help your Dad with your Mom that you don't forget to look after you!! Take care and know that I will be praying for you all. Hugs to you.

I wonder if your Mom is allergic to one of her pain medications. That could be why the personality change. Best wishes to her and you, for a speedy recovery.

So sorry to hear about your Mom's fall. The pain meds can definitely make her a different person. Once she's off them she'll return to normal, albeit hobbly. Just be sure she weans off the pain meds rather than stopping abruptly...that can cause a whole other set of issues, none of which are good. Best to you and your family for a nice holiday.

You and Your Mom are in my prayers.

My mom was pretty crazy also with all the meds before and after surgery. I think it must effect older people that way. The quilt is lovely. Good luck with taking care of your mom and getting all your necessities moved. Take care of yourself also though with your health issues.
