June 13, 2004

I did get some sleep last night. Mama was out until 4:54 AM. She was up eating. Am not sure exactly what happened, but the room divider filled with photos was leaning over. Luckily it did not fall on top of Mama.

5:15AM back in bed

5:21AM up and eating

5:36AM back to bed after giving me some mashed potatoes and very messy kisses on both cheeks.

5:48AM came to living room to give me two cookies. Went back to bed without eating this time.

5:50AM back to eat

6:07AM back to bed

7:30AM up to go to the bathroom. I ran in to change her Depends.

7:42AM more food

8:15AM new plate

8:30AM gave morning medication in applesauce.

8:50AM eating again

9:05AM food again; I had better fix a new plate

9:30AM new plate

10:11AM changed her dress; put medicine on her sore toe; changed socks; then she ate again

I was able to corral Mama into the car to get to church a little early this week. I think she enjoyed the fellowship. We came home after the service and ate (surprise! Surprise!) then took a bit of a nap. Of course about the time I dozed off, she got up. Guess I did not really need that nap after all.

2:34PM eating then back to bed

3:40PM eating plate number 8 million something just counting today!!

3:51PM eating

4:13PM eating; then to bed

4:39PM another plate

4:55PM back to bed

And I think that brings you up to date. It is a little after 5:00 Sunday Afternoon so am sure she will be back in a few minutes.

Hugs to one and all,
