We enjoyed Mother's Day with my mom. What made it even more special is that we didn't think she would come this far. When everything came to a head last November, we were told we'd be lucky if she were still with us in three months.
Consider us lucky!
And are we ever grateful! Yeah, she has her up days and her down days. She seems to need those blood transfusions more and more often. I could see from one weekend to the next how her strength gets zapped. But the good news is that she's more mobile - she's up and about, doing stuff. Big Bro Dude was telling me how she had berated her men for ruining her kitchen. Nothing was where it was supposed to be. Ornery as ever! But that's my Mum.
I know everyone pretty much thinks the same of their own mother (at least, I think they should), but here's to the very best mother ever. Tina.
Yeah, grateful for every day.
