Settling in

Greetings from Gorham NH, where giant snowflakes are gently falling this morning. The ground is covered with a "dusting" of snow . . . preview of more to come. :-)

Mom continues to adjust and settle into living at home. She has home health nurses and therapists coming in several times a week. Senior Meals is bringing lunches five days a week, which is a great help!

Physically Mom is doing well, getting around without her walker some of the time. Her speech is doing great too. Her memory does give her trials at times, but is also doing remarkably well, considering what she has been through.

I have been helping with appointments, shopping, and especially trying to clean and organize the house. Please pray that Mom and I would agree in deciding what to keep and what not to keep. Mom keeps almost everything, and there is much work to do to organize it. Anything that can be disposed of reduces that burden, and we won't have to deal with it again in the future!!

A piano technician is coming this morning to look at the piano that has not been played since my sister Lois went to college in 1991. If it is in decent shape, we have a friend who will put it to good use! Its departure would make room for a dresser downstairs for Mom.

Thanks to all who are praying and caring for our family during this challenging time. We continue to be so grateful for Mom's amazing recovery to this point, and trust it will continue!!
