The topic: Mom’s slowly getting better


It’s great to see her making connections that she couldn’t make two weeks ago.  I took pictures at her place yesterday and made a slideshow from them.  Took it in this morning and there were places she knew right off.  “That’s my front door.”  “That’s the kitchen window.” 

And she’s remembering that I was there before.  That’s new this week.  The first couple of weeks, she didn’t remember me being there the day before. So, that’s good.

I’d like to make a request.  If anybody who reads this would like to send her a card while she’s where she is (probably through the end of February), it would sure be appreciated.  As the years have passed, her circle of friends has gotten smaller and I think cards from fellow cat people might make her days a little brighter.  If you want the addy, just leave a comment and I’ll send you the information.

Yes, Send me her address and I will send her a card.  Would she like cat pictures with them?  I take pictures of my cats, and my flowers.  Let me know what she would like.  I have a couple of ocean stormy looking pictures too.  And somewhere I have Keiko.

I would love to send your mother cards and photos of my 5 cats.  I am an RN who has worked in a “step down” unit like where your mother is.  I konw how much cards and postcards can help.  Please send me her address.

I would happily send her a card - will she think it odd getting something from a “foreign stranger”?  But just a nice cat card with a “get well” message could be cheerful for her, I think.  Please send me her address if you think I can help.

I would be more than happy to send her a card.  I have some really cute ones featuring goofy kitties.
