October 8, 2010

Sometimes you just have to not follow the plan.  Sometimes you have to suddenly decide to take a left turn when you normally would keep going forward.  That's what we did today.  The colors of the trees beckoned us towards small hill, which led to a bigger hill, which led to an even bigger one.  We traveled around the beautiful Holy Hill area in Wisconsin and even stepped out to take some photos.  It was a great time and one of those moments you'll always remember.

Mom had a heart monitor put on her for the weekend.  The cardiologist heard a few 'interesting things' when he listened to her heart so the monitor will record her heart for the next 48 hours.  We'll get the test results back in a few days.

Mom's feeling very tired but that is expected.  We went through that when she had radiation the last time.  Dad is doing fine.  We try to keep talking about the days' events so he will recall them.  Once in awhile he does but for the most part he is forgetting some of the day-to-day activities that we do.  Perhaps things will get better in the winter when we spend time indoors to keep warm, and not so many trips to the hospital.

Enjoy the photos from our outdoor visit.   Mom said today that she seems to be so much more aware of her surroundings and that she has learned not to take anything for granted.  She said that the trees look so beautiful to her that she cannot stop watching them.  It is nice to see her slow down to enjoy them.
