Afternoon delight and Mama news





From my work windows. Remember the hole in the clouds I posted Oct. 13? The photos are of the same area; you can see the tower at the top edge of the treeline.

I've never seen clouds like these. Have you?

Mama sat up in her wooden high-backed, padded chair with arms for one hour this afternoon. When I went to visit after work today, her supper arrived--a grilled cheese sandwich, canned peach slices, vanilla wafers, strawberry sorbet, and milk. She ate with more gusto than I've seen since she became ill, I'm happy to report. She also told me that she stayed awake better, too, and felt less dizzy now and then. Tomorrow's the big day. I'll let y'all know how it goes. Pray for strength, stamina and patience--for me! Ha! Pray for Mama above and beyone me, please. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

What a nice view from your office! I certainly wouldn't get anything done. Those clouds look like a huge light feather. Glad to hear Mama is eating well and sitting up for longer periods of time. The doctors must be doing something right. Don't forget to take care of yourself too.

Great pics, I am hoping tomorrow is a day for good news. Sounds like Mama is getting better. So far, so good, and the hospital food doesnt sound as bad as I remember.
