I sit this morning at the airport, awaiting my flight to Tucson. The plan was for me to spend the next 3 weeks with my Mom, as she comes home from the Nursing Home. (See last post for that story). Only thing, she's not going home.
All at the Nursing Home, from the physical therapist, doctor, social worker, told her she could not live alone. the social worker actually told her she would have to sell her condo. It took days to calm mom down after that conversation. But, truth be told, she cannot live by herself. But how to tell Mom?
My sister (16 years my junior) has been in Tucson for the past week and a half orchestrating an amazing scenario of people, places and things. Just yesterday, the perfect place was found and Mom was moved in about 4:00pm.
I know no more than that, as at about 4:00pm yesterday I was driving my oldest daughter home from a tonsolectomy (under the "influence") with two crying babies in the back seat, while "baby mom" went to get her sisters pain meds from the pharmacy, pick up the baby daddy and go to a chiropractic appt.
My sister called and I did not answer. She will pick me up at the Tucson airport this afternoon, so I decided I would just be "surprised"!
The good news is that I may finally have a little time on OS during the next 3 weeks as i will be staying at Mom's apt by myself.
I'll keep you posted.
And now for the real reason of this post!
