Yes, it's Saturday, and it's going to be a glorious one, too !
It's also Adam's B'Day today...*sniff*
And he called the other day, and I missed it!!! WAAAAAH !!!
He called while I was at work. He'll be home the end of next month. FINALLY.
So.. quick weekend update.
Mom is doing well. The weather has improved greatly now and it is promising to be a beautiful week ahead. She does so much better when she can go outdoors. I had her out all yesterday afternoon, and she loved it.
Today I am taking her to a small park in town.. very peaceful setting, small creek, paved paths so I can push her around in her WC, lots of trees and wellkept grassy areas. Going to pack a picnic lunch and spend the afternoon there with her. Should be nice and I know she'll enjoy getting out a little. DH is playing in a golf tournament today, so we'll get out and enjoy as well.
I noticed that when she's outdoors, her sundowning is not near what it is when she's stuck indoors in front of the tv. She loves watching the goings on in the neighborhood.. ppl mowing their yards, children playing, etc. She is far more alert and coherent of her surroundings when she's outside. Oh, she'll still ask you the same question 25,000 times in the span of 5 minutes
but she doesn't get the "anxious" part of the sundowning as she does indoors.
Tues. is her B'Day, so I have a few balloons to blow up and presents to wrap yet this weekend.
Well, that's it from me. Maybe I'll be able to pop in here again tomorrow morning.
Hope all of you are doing well. It's been a rough week here for all in our area with the Virginia Tech tragedy...we all wore our ribbons to show our support for VT Hokie Hope Day. Such a tragic waste of so many beatiful lives.
