a quiet moment

A winters sunset

Well, it has been a week of worry and long days and short nights, but Mom is better. She broke her leg a week ago Friday. Brought her home that night and everything seemed okay—

Then she reacted to the pain medication and we almost lost her.

She lost her way for a while, but is slowly finding her path back home. It was a heartbreaking day on Sunday, when she didn’t know who or where she was or who I was – particularly heartbreaking to see her so confused.

I believe sometime on Tuesday, she chose to stay with us and each day she has gained a tiny bit of herself back.

Still very weak and of course with a big heavy cast on her left leg, she can’t move without help. We are looking for someone to stay with her during the day while I am at work. And due to being at the end of the earth here in the Ozarks, it is hard to find folks willing to drive all this way.

But I remind myself, it has only been a week – so each day more and more will fall into place until finally we are back to a regular old normal day to day routine.

We are so grateful for your kind thoughts and prayers – each one has been a bright candle in our dark days. Please continue to shine your light –

  1. I am glad your mom pulled through and is on the mend. Yes, it will be tricky to find someone, and I hope the right person comes along very soon. What a difficult time it has been for you all, my friend. I am relieved to hear positive news from you. What a spectacular sky, in your photo! It looks like the floor of Heaven!

  2. I’m sorry to know of your mom’s suffering, and the strain and stress that comes to everyone involved. Stay strong–I wish there was more I could offer, but you have all of my concern and good thoughts.

  3. I’m glad to hear the news. My Mom had a hip replacement two weeks ago and it’s been slow going (she’s 80 years old). I sympathize – it’s hard to watch them struggle. And I do owe you a letter. I’ll get going on that.
