Yesterday was a busy day. I had to take off work to go get the list of things requested by the extended care facility. I couldn't believe it took so long to track everything down. I also found a pretty blue flower hair clip I thought would look great in my mother's gorgeous white hair. Unfortunately she wasn't of the same opinion. But I prevailed and put it in her hair just the same and she looked so pretty. The blue matched her eyes and the blouse she was wearing perfectly. I put a little blush on her cheeks and some pink lipstick and she was pretty as a picture! She was still a bit depressed and eating has become a real challenge. The nurse told her she MUST eat in order to get better but I think it just goes in one ear and out the other. I sit with her and try to distract her while sneaking in a bite or two. So far I'm getting away with it but I think she will catch on soon! Just taking everything one day at at time. I keep telling her she's at camp and she tells me she doesn't like going to physical education class. It's really her physical therapy but she still doesn't like it.
