Oh, my goodness! Lots of personal things. Note re Mom's release calendar!

It's been almost two weeks since I updated.

In the meantime, Microsoft  has updated on me and in that process, my camera is no longer recognized :-( and I haven't been able to fix that.

BUT I bought a smart phone android and that SHOULD work....but I'm still figuring out how to do that. DD Leanne sort of pushed that on me .... and it will take awhile to figure out all the ins and outs of it.

I'll try and figure that out in the next couple days, I hope. Because I have some wonderful things to show you.

We brought Mom home to her condo from Glenrose Rehab this morning for good! We tried it out last weekend and it was such a success that we convinced the hospital to release her to home rather than facilitated living. These are the pictures of her last weekend!

Between Shirley, me and Home Care, we plan on making it work.

Now that she is again in the building next door (just across the parking lot), hope I'll be able to get some work done around here.

TINA: The calendar that we used for Mom's release calendar was a Lindt chocolate calendar. 

This was such a joy to Mom (and the hospital staff)! There were actually two extra days on it so Mom opened the second last one today and really enjoyed it!

I would certainly recommend this for a long term hospital stay. Fun from day to day for both the patient and staff! Yet no size, scent, or dying off as you have to deal with with real life plants/flowers.


  1. Such good news!
    All the best to your mom for a speedy and full recovery.

  2. You can see by her face how happy she is to be in her own place.Will continue to pray for a full recovery for your Mom

  3. Oh Maureen - what great news. She is very lucky indeed to have such loving care givers around her. Her recovery story is so very inspiring. What a great and determined lady! All the best. - Marilyn D., Oromocto, NB
