It has been a very busy week!

I hope everyone had a very nice Easter. Ours turned out just wonderful! It didn't look that way at first, but things turned around and landed up to be one of our best! It would have better if my brother Mike and kids could have been there, plus if Sam didn't have to leave so fast. But I guess that happens when you are a truck driver.

Remember I told you that my cousin Kat and her son were coming. Well, After Spring cleaning mom's house all day Friday and Saturday I got a phone call at 9PM saying she was just going to stop and se mom and head back home. I had just left mom's house and haven't even cooked super for my family. My 1st instinct was to run over there, and then I got pissed off that she was going to do us this way, but then I decided to call her and see what was up that she was going to drive 4 hours home at that time of night. (She lives just the other side of Birmingham.) Her son had hurt is back during football practice and the pain had went down into his growing. He was in a lot of pain and was sick at his stomach. I haven't seen Kat since Uncle Buddy's funeral last year and about 4 years before that. I haven't seen her son in about 5 years, but I was going to understand if they went home and was happy, she took the time to go see momma. Who knows this may the last time they get to see momma. Her son never knew Kat's mom because she died of cancer just before he was born so by mail and phone they stay close to momma. Momma always sends Kat's son money for his birthdays and sent some when he graduated high school. Turned out that she was able to get him easy and decided to stay and visit Easter. It was so great to spend that time with them. I wish we could see more of them! But Kat moved to Alabama about 25 years or so and it's hard for them or us just to go visit. Plus I guess you can say Al is Kat's home.

This week hasn't been as hard on me, but I have needed to be with momma more. With her down in her back, we are unable to leave her by herself. Her Dr did order her a motorized wheel chair. Hopefully we can get it in this week. This will make it easier for her to get around. Now we need to get her a lift chair or different kind of bed that is easier for her to get in and out of. We are at the point of her COPD that we have to choose her taking prednisone all the time to make it where she can breathe over bone deterioration. Momma has Rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, Fibromyalgia, Severe COPD, Immune disorder (IGG), and Chronic
respiratory failure. Maybe if we can get these things, it will make it easier on me and better for momma.

Over all it has been a good week. I really have missed all of you! If I'm not able to be back online before the 23rd, (Thursday) please keep me in your thoughts and send happy thoughts and prayers.

I really hope to see you soon!

Take care!

I will certainly be keeping you and your mom in my thoughts. My mother suffers from some of the same things your mom does. She was taken off steroids a few years ago and this is when she started going downhill. I hope the chair and other equipment helps make it easier for you to care for your mom.
