Last Friday I got a call from my sweet Mom, she said 'I need you'. So I made quick arrangements for Charlie, my plants and my mail and flew to Houston on Sunday.
My flight was delayed two hours, we had a rough trip and arrived in a rain storm. But I got here!
My cousin Heather picked me up and drove me to Mom's house. Big hugs and me saying it will all be OK! Mom had oral surgery two weeks ago to remove the remainder of her teeth and get dentures. It's been hard on her at 83, and she had some dizziness and even fainted last week. Yesterday I took her to the Dr who diagnosed her with dehydration. Since not being able to eat normally she was dehydrated and he took her off two of her meds until her blood pressure comes back up.
(not my photo but isn't this pretty...sorry if I borrowed it from you...let me know)
Too say we are all relieved that it is only dehydration is an understatement, but it has also prompted a decision that has been too long coming
Mom can no longer live in her home alone!
FINALLY, she is moving to Georgia!
I've put my foot down and luckily she agrees :)
We are looking at a wonderful Independent Living community 8 miles from where I live. She will be in a one bedroom with a kitchen so she can cook some but her evening meals are provided.
St Mary's Highland Hills
I am so happy that she will be close to me!
It will be hard on her to change all her Doctors but she will also be happier near me, Sara and her family!
So much to figure out, what to take, what to donate, what to sell. It will be a big job.
I will move Mom and get her settled then return to clean out the house and put it on the market.
If I'm a bit absent from blogging don't worry!
I will continue to visit and comment as I can, I would miss you all so much if I didn't visit!
That is what is going on in my world!
Too leave you with a smile on your face...

Wishing You JOY,
