Mom Update #10

Tiki Visits Mom

On the 1st day of the 2nd week of this odyssey, Tiki came to Park Regency to visit mom. Their first time together since the fall. Everybody seemed very happy about this!

Also Tiki stayed at my place last night and that seems a lot better than being alone all day at Monterey Park.

Pain

Mom’s shoulder replacement surgery was only 60 hours ago and so she’s still in plenty of pain. When the staff move her for any number of reasons, it hurts. I think mom’s doing a good job of keeping positive, but the pain, the medication, the endless hours in bed, it’s all quite challenging.

There continues to be a wonderful stream of visitors and I think that really helps. Thanks so much to everyone!
