I received a text from Susie this evening, asking that I call her. Thankfully, she always clarifies that it’s not an emergency so that I don’t panic, but I have to say, I still dread seeing those messages. Safe to say it isn’t typically good news.
As I dialed the phone, I ran several scenarios through my head… ah, what could it be??
Imagine my surprise upon learning that the only reason for the call was to tell me that today was a GOOD DAY for Mom!!!
No crying, screaming, hitting, pinching, or acting out in any way… She even ate like a champ, and… get this… fed herself at lunch and dinner (with the other ladies at the table)!! While she still wasn’t as peppy as she has been in the past, she was caught laughing, making faces, and even dancing!!
Hearing that, my friends, is definitely the way to end Monday on a resounding high note!!
Until next time… Carpe Diem…

That’s wonderful, Ann. I realize there will be up and down days for me, too, but so far i can thank the Lord every night that most of the day was an “up” for DH, and for the most part I can forget the “down” parts……
Absolutely! Even now, I try to focus on the good days and not the bad. I want to enjoy every joyful moment we have… this disease teaches you to take nothing for granted. Best to you and DH.
