Sense of Taste Improving

So Mom thinks. This is welcome news.

We were told Mom's recovery would span approximately one year's time. She is nine months out from the incident.

Terminator IV: The Exercise Machines

Mom started going to physical therapy at Baylor-All Saints. The first day, she stressed her lower back muscles on a machine, causing her to miss her second day of therapy, and to be in pain for several days.

Me: How did you hurt your back?

Mom: The therapist put me on a machine "for 10 minutes." Then, she walked away, got distracted, and left me on the machine for 15 minutes.

Me: Why didn't you turn the machine off?

Mom: I didn't know how. When she walked away, I just had to keep going.

Less Walking Cane

When she goes out, Mom is occasionally leaving her walking cane behind. This is new.

We had an excellent Christmas in Denham Springs. Hope you did, also. Having lost 25% of her body weight, Mom received new clothing for Christmas gifts. Such fun for her.

Mom greatly enjoyed the Christmas cards and the Christmas letters she received. She thanks everyone for those.

Bruce and Lisa are building a new house - to better accommodate their needs. The house is quite beautiful. We are all excited.

In Wisconsin, the almost fatal Barbies were hits as Christmas gifts.
