Calgary has been enjoying some truly wonderful summer weather the last week or so.... I'm afraid of jinxing it by saying anything.... but it's been wonderful! Lots of sun, lots of warmth... I was worried we wouldn't see much for summer this year.
For those of you who are following along, Mom has settled in well at the Hospice. She was really upset about going there but I think she's felt very comfortable and at home from almost the first moment after arriving. My sister tells me that the staff is all very awesome and caring. Mom has been out and about the facility and gardens in her wheelchair which is a nice break from being in bed all day. But it sure does tire her out by the end of the day. Heather still has no plans to head back home to Ontario and I am uncertain of when I will head out to Regina to visit Mom for a bit. For now my foot is too sore to make the 7 hour drive, but the foot is getting better... once it's no longer swelling if not elevated I will decide when to go.
If anyone is interested, I know that Mom is still loving getting cards in the mail... she is decorating her room with them. Heather brings her the mail every day and it truly is a bright spot in her day. You can email me if you'd like her address....
I have spent a bit of time crafting this week.... I've made three cards.... nothing major, but at least it was crafty!
