This week we counted: the fish we ate tonight (Ali), owls and my new alarm clock (Sami), leaves to press and a coat to keep my body warm (Eliza).

REI’s return policy and being at home with family (Doug), cheese pizza and David’s new guinea pig (Gordon), my Grandma coming home (Spencer).
Yes, my mother coming home from the hospital after brain surgery and a month long stay in inpatient rehab. That was at the top of my list.Tuesday morning we made this sign for her and waited for a text from my Dad to say they were on their way.
It took her ten minutes to make it inside to her favorite chair. But she did it! With the help of a four point cane, gait belt, my sister Deb, and my Dad.
She has a tough road ahead. Learning to walk again, radiation 5x/week for the next six weeks, PT, OT and speech therapies several times a week. It will be exhausting. And she keeps saying she looks like a little old lady.
But this is such wonderful progress, all we can do is cheer!
