Hi Friends! Due to the help we are currently seeking, it has been recommended that I hold off on speaking about our friends at Aetna and Bank of America! But please, don’t worry your pretty little faces – as soon as I am able to fill you in on the latest and greatest, I will be eager and excited to do so. In the mean time, please know, that we will continue to battle for Mom and what we believe is right. What is happening right now is NOT right. And please feel free to give me a call at any time 😉
In the mean time, I will continue to update on Mom’s PROGRESS as we all know, she continues to IMPROVE daily! For example – today while Molly and myself were visiting, she stood, bearing all of her own weight, while rocking right and left, for over 3 minutes. Stood tall. Stood straight. Stood proud. Her therapist said he has seen a tremendous IMPROVEMENT in the short time she has been there. How awesome!!!
As for other news. I have thought long and hard about this decision, but bought Mom a handicapped accessible van. I was back and forth, felt great, felt worried. Turned out to be the best decision I’ve made yet! Finally. I also thought I needed to give Max and Memaw another shot so yesterday was a big day! Went into Moms room and told her I’m taking her out! She was apprehensive, and just plain did not want to go. Too bad. The nurses came in and got her all ready to go! Wheeled her out hoping and praying that this was going to go well. Max was waiting in the van and was so excited to tell Memaw all about her new van. So far so good! She loved it! Couldn’t believe this was for her and was super excited. Hooked her up and strapped her down! We were signing country music, she was bobbing her head singing away, Max was showing her dump trucks and explaining red/green lights. My heart knew right then that this was the RIGHT thing to do. Got to the park, she watched Max run all over. Max was showing her how things worked, we went walking around. Mom was smiling like I haven’t seen in a long time. It was one of my best moments since this all happened. 💜💚💛 I was scared 💩-less, but it was wonderful, happy, fun. Took her back in time for lunch and Max wanted to help me get her out and push her to her room. Awesome. Once we got to her room, he freaked again – so we identified the problem. Mom was tired and had a headache when we got back but she looked so ALIVE! Gah! I am so happy. PS top left pic – Yocco’s! Missed that place!
PLEASE know that this van is for EVERYONE to use! PLEASE USE IT! Give me a call, tell me when you need it, and it will be here for you! I may need to take my kids in your car if that’s ok – but we will work it out. She needs this! Take her! Show her that she is still alive! That there is life to live out there! That there is more than just her wheelchair and bedroom. I’m so excited!!
And finally, my spelling has been brought to my attention. I am sorry. Never claimed to be an English major by any means! I write fast, on my phone, and believe that you aren’t following me for my spelling. But I will work on it…a little. 😉
Have a wonderful weekend! It’s going to be beautiful! Xo
