We got the downstairs tree up. This year it will have one stringer of Bubble Lights for the entire season. Last year we put them on the tree for awhile..then we took them off..they get pretty warm. If they worry me too much I will take them off the tree and pack them away.
Chance and Far Guy admiring their work.
The Bubble Lights are mesmerizing..the liquid heats up and then they bubble..some are slow.. so you have to tap the glass tube to get the bubbles moving.
The tree would only have lights..but the Calvary(Jen, Andy, Noah and Adam) stopped by on Sunday afternoon and the tree was quickly decorated. Many hands make short work of a big project. www shopjendotcom delivered three gifts to be wrapped. Far Guy was going to drive 90 miles to pick up two items…and Jen graciously agreed to pick the items up for us.
More packages were delivered in the mail yesterday..we are getting quite a pile upstairs on the gift wrapping table.
The Calvary brought extra cookies from the cookie exchange..so we won’t be baking any cookies:)
Far Guy is still exhausted..he tires easily..but managed his mile walk yesterday morning.
My Mom is surviving..she walked a short distance (five feet) with the aid of a walker in Physical Therapy yesterday. There has been big medication mix ups several times at the Nursing Home..she is not getting her pain medication in a timely manner and then she gets behind and cannot catch up with the pain and lies awake all night in pain. I spoke with her Nurse yesterday..and I believe my brother spoke to the Charge Nurse. I told one of the Nurses that I can call every two hours if that is what it takes to get a Nurse to give her the meds. (they said that was not necessary)
It is very frustrating..yesterday I immediately knew that she had not slept well. She has to be able to sleep to heal and to get better.
Treatment for a broken pelvis includes bed rest, physical therapy and pain management. It may take 8 to 12 weeks before she is all better and is able to care for herself.
