Fresh as a very old daisy
Mom didn't eat much yesterday so she's weak this morning but I think she'll make up for it today. She's already had most of a full cup of coffee and oatmeal.
It's really heartwarming to see Mom's face light up when John comes in the room. She always reaches up with her hand to draw him close for a kiss. Sharyn noted that she does this with men only - I think Sharyn's right. Mom is a flirt any way you look at it. I asked Mom if she was in love with John and her reply was a weak "I'll never tell." Very cute indeed.
I've been blessed with yet another wonderful homecare worker, Elizabeth, who has been spelling me over night. With her help, and that of Doris (another great homecare worker), I've been able to sleep mostly through the night - a huge gift for any caregiver. I'm very very grateful to their support through this time.
Carina and Sharyn are here today so John and I are headed to DC for the day. We rarely have visited the city in the last 4 years so we're overdue. Adam's Morgan is on the menu today - a unique little neighborhood outside DC. There's very interesting restaurants and stores in the area. Since it will be 50 degrees today (what happened to my winter?!), it's convertible weather so even the ride will be nice.
