September 7, 2013

     Good morning. It sure is chilly this morning. If it keeps this up I may have to light a fire for Mom. She is very cold all the time anyway and with this pin in her hip I am sure it will cause her some pain when it is cold. The thermometer in the house says 64 degrees, outside 48.
     Mom had a good day yesterday. Even though she complained all day about everything. She is doing better with transfers. I only have to provide a touch assist. Walking is the same way. If the pain and the fear would go away she would be back to her old self.
     Boredom is an issue. There isn't much for her to do being stuck in a chair all day. TV only provides so much entertainment. Magazines get boring after a while. So yesterday we went for a walk. Mom in her wheelchair, Lucky on his leash riding on Mom's lap most of the time, and me pushing. Up the road and down the road, the way she would always walk Lucky before the fall. I thought it would be fun for her to get out of the house and feel the sun and get some fresh air. Well she complained the whole time. The sun was to bright, the road was to bumpy, she just wanted to go home. So much for trying to get her out and about. The most fun on the walk was getting to visit with her granddaughter who was up the road playing outside of her sitters.
     I must go get the day started. Have a good day.
