Shopping Day!

Mom has had three good days in a row.  Her feeding tube continues to be an issue, but otherwise she is progressing wonderfully.

After working with an occupational therapist on her abilities to take of her own personal care, I found a wheelchair, loaded her up along with tubes and tubes of IV's and broke her out of 5 North!!!!

We took a ride down the elevator to the main floor.  We maneuvered into the gift shop so she could purchase some gift cards for others.  I think I spooked her a bit, kind of like taking her off road into Lake of the Woods :)

She is now resting comfortably in her bed.


  1. Alright Pattie... Lake of the Woods -- nice adventure. I think about you guys all the time. Sending good thoughts.

    Love and hugs

  2. Hi Grandma,

    Love, Kim

  3. Happy healing Mary.
    Love, Lore
