Up With The Sun or Yeah Here Come The Rooster

Up With The Sun or Yeah Here Come The Rooster
Today was a good day. Mom was up and running at 7:30 AM, all on her own. Well, she wasn't really running, it was more of a slow shuffle, but you get the drift.

I made her coffee and breakfast, which she ate well--I did have to remind her once to eat since she was engrossed in the daily paper. But never the less she ate and ate well. She was up about ninety minutes before heading back to bed.

At noon, she was up and hungry. Again it was all on her own. She ate well, and read the paper again for another hour. On the way back to bed she stopped by an old desk in the hall. Today she recognized that it was hers. It's a small thing, but it's the first time in several weeks she's said anything about her stuff.

Then to top off the day, as we were cooking dinner, Mom was up again. All on her own. She ate with the family and she ate well again. We had a dinner conversation with the kids about how the internet really works and Mom didn't understand anything we were talking about but she handled it well.

It was a good day for Mom and that makes me happy!
