Update on Mom

On Tuesday morning we drove to Wenatchee to Moms Dr appointments. She had to be there by 9:30 for her CT scan. Then we saw her neurologist and neurosurgeon. They were both pleased with the outcome of her last surgery and her resiliency after them. Her motor skills are still doing great..cognitive can take longer, up to 4-6 months to see if there is any improvement. They didn't make any adjustments at this time on the pump since she is doing well as it is. She doesn't have to go back until about April or May for another follow up, as long as things are going okay. She does still have some eye pain, which her neurologist said was probably headaches. In March Mom has an eye appointment with her eye specialist so he can check her eyes further. We were out by about 10:45 am.
We met up with Uncle Clyde and Aunt Lana at their house for a nice little visit, then on home.
It is always a long day for Mom and Dad with so much traveling, but they are Happy Campers!!

Sweet Surprise in the Mail

Look at this sweet Valentine surprise my Penelope sent me( I mean us) in the mail!! All kinds of favorite chocolates too!! The cute little tea towel has an applique heart on it but I didn't get that side in my picture(oops). I love the red window clings...what fun!!

She and her husband sold their house in Nova Scotia and are moving closer to home. Well, it is still quite a ways...south central Manitoba....but it is much closer than Nova Scotia.

My Walk

These are the trees I pass on my daily walk. Can you guess what kind of tree this is? It is an apple tree that has been eaten by the deer year after year. That is why most all of the orchardists put up 8 foot deer fence around their orchards trying to keep the deer out so their whole orchards don't look like this.

This all used to be orchard about 30 years ago. Now just a few scattered scabby fruit trees and a bunch of elm trees. It is a great spot for the area deer and other wildlife to hang out. I usually see a few deer here when I'm walking or riding my horse.

I just thought I would share some of the goodies I got at Craft Warehouse and Pier One at their after Christmas sales. This was all about 10 bucks!! 90% cool is that!

I thought these little birds were soo cute...only 4 left though.

I got these whimsical Santa pillows at Pier One...75% off. They are a good size too, about 18 inches square.

We are headed to the Home Show in Wenatchee tomorrow, we went last year and it was alot of fun. Pepi and Lucy are going to visit Spike while we are gone.

Mom got her staples out yesterday with her Dr. here in town. It has only been a week since her surgery and she seems to be doing pretty well. Still pain in her neck though. Hopefully it will heal for her soon. But Mom is certainly not one to complain, sometimes I wish she would though.
