Thankful!

Today on Pink Saturday I am so Thankful!
For Family and Friends
For Wonderful Medical Care
For My Mom
For a Loving God!

I am staying in Houston with my Mom until she is able to drive and be alone again.  We go back to her Cardiologist June 12th.  Until then I am making sure that she rests, doesn't move too fast and lets that pacemaker incision heal.  I am so thankful she is doing well.  The Dr's are all amazed at how she has bounced back!  
She is a very Strong Woman!  
We will be making some changes in her living arrangements in the near future...I am hoping to move her closer to me in Georgia! 

The flower photos were taken at the Conservatory at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas.  
More about my Vegas trip soon!

What happy news! My prayers are with your Mom for her continued recovery. And for you as well. Do move her closer to you. I encouraged my parents to move close to me and I am so happy I did. Have a happy weekend.

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

So glad to hear that your Mom is doing well, Linda! It's such an emotional rollercoaster ride when a loved one is sick. My Mom had colon cancer surgery and is now in a nursing home rehabbing. We're hoping she'll eventually be able to go back home, fingers crossed!
