Thank You all for the up-lifting comments! Mom is doing well, the PT even made her stand up this morning! I have only the cat and my youngest GD to care for today. GD is fairly easy, cat is clinging, not ill, just old and fussy. I also got to sit NEXT to my husband last night to watch TV. Mom has wanted to sit next to me since she moved in, several years ago, and that has denied me cuddles from my other family members, except for the grandchildren who just climb into my lap and drape themselves around me. I know....WAH.
