Hugs

At last! My mum is returning home from hospital tomorrow. The doctors saw her today and they are pleased with how mum's legs are doing so they are sending her home with some meds, cream for her legs and some compression bandages to try and reduce the swelling. My dad told me that mum's legs are suddenly looking a lot better so this is great news. Of course mum is pleased as she was getting very fed-up and bored with being in hospital, not able to watch what she wanted or sleep in her own bed and all those other little things we all take for granted. She had been in hospital for about a month!

My dad will have to help my mum with the bandages and such, and social services are meant to be calling to see what care assistance will be required. Apparently she is already bossing dad around again which is a sure sign that she's feeling better!

I wanted to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude for all your good thoughts, kind words and prayers for my mother. They were truly appreciated so thank you and hugs to you from me.

I am hoping to have a fun post up for my birthday on Thurs so be sure to drop by! :)

Mr. kenju always says he can tell when I am getting better, as the bossiness and impatience happens more and more.....LOL

This is good news, Bob-kat!!

Glad for the news. Now I'll have to pray for your Dad given your "bossiness" remarks.

Cheers.

Hi, Michele sent me! I love the pictures from the zoo. I'm a huge animal lover but, I haven't been to the zoo here in quite some time. Great news about your mum.

How wonderful your mum is home!!! Tell her the fat lady respectfully requests that she go just a bit easy on Dad--so all of us "ladies of a certain age" do not get a reputation as rolling-pin wielders! (lol)

Now, about your birthday-- it's going to be grrrr--ate!

This must be the best birthday gift of all.

I'm thrilled for you all. She's so lucky to have a wonderful family around her.

Oops...almost forgot. Popped in from Michele's today. I'd be here on my own, anyway. You're just that good.
