Saturday night, Mom had a spot of trouble. She wanted to go to the restroom but could not find the nurse call button thingie.

SO

She got out of bed and used her walker to hop out to the nurse's station to ask if there was a nurse that could help her go to the bathroom as she knew she wasn't to go alone.

We decided she deserved 50% credit for remembering the part about not doing things on her own. Even though she did. Of course, she really was perplexed and distressed for trying to do the right thing yet still 'messing up,' so we made her this guide to help her in the night.

Poor Mom.

Never a moment's peace.

She is such a trooper and good patient, too. Even when she doesn't want to do something, like go outside, she goes along with it because I have asked her to do so. (Going out stimulated a small panic attack but she is plugging through.)

How we love her so. As, we know, do you. With love and laughter-

Jacqui - glad you finally got to celebrate your birthday. We still have those bottles of wine, we were going to bring to Nicole's just waiting for you to return and toast you and your mom's good health. Like to see you all laughing and enjoying yourselves - you all deserve a break. Happy B-day Roland.
Hugs to all
