Mama Update and Banana Cream Pie

Banana Cream Pie from 3 Doors Down Cafe, SE 37th and Hawthorne, Portland, Oregon!

I'm home, doing Laundry, but I've just talked with her on the phone. She told me she felt a little better--hooray! I asked her to ask the doctor to call me if he shows up before I can get there--I'm riding the bus today because both guys have to be at work from 9 a.m. until 10 p.m. at the earliest. And I thought I was tired!

Yesterday she walked twice in the hall, with a hospital walker whose wheel(s)--and I use that term loosely because you actually couldn't see them turning--made a sound so embarrassing that I told a nurse in the hallway, "That's the walker, not my Mama!" She was attached to an oxygen cylinder on wheels which, thankfully, made no sounds at all. She also sat up in the chair several times.

The only food she ate with any enthusiasm was a piece of banana cream pie from 3 Doors Down Cafe--Kathy and Dave sent it in one of those cute little white take-out boxes. Dave wrote "Get Well!" on it. The minute I mentioned it to her, she said, "I want some milk to go with it," so I pushed the button and ordered some lactose-free milk.

I'm off in a few minutes to put the stuff in the dryer.

Thanks again so much for all of your prayers and good wishes for each of us. We are truly blessed.

P.S. How 'bout them Dawgs! At this point, I really don't care about the season record, I only care about the 41-27 whupping Mississippi State put all over Ole Miss. (Sorry to my Ole Miss buds, but just think about it for a minute. Wouldn't you be just as obnoxiously excited?

I am glad she is getting around and up for eating some of that delicious-looking pie!

Good for Mama. She needs to be up and moving to get better. Secondly, as soon as we saw that pie my wife said Ooooohhhhhh. Remember this past summer when we came down and ate at 3 Doors Down? Well that was the complimentary desert we received and Krise hasn't stopped thinking about it since.

Where is my pie?

The only good thing about MSU beating Ole Miss is Mississippi may be coming back to the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. There is a Terrell alumni who plays for the Rebels, Gerald Harris, he caught 2 TD passes in the game last year.

Glad Mama is getting up and about.

That pie would whet anyone's appetite.

That's great news. You've made my day. If a piece of banana cream pie helps with her recovery, I'll hand delivery the whole pie.
