I need to get some more photos for Mom's room and I want to put more hooked rugs on the wall. So "pretty" will take some time. One of the first things to go in the room was her special angel.
A friend brought her to the hospital on Christmas Eve and she has watched over Mom ever since. And of course there's a picture of Millie there too.
It seems that they are not really eager to move Mom's room so for now it looks like this it. Mom's bed is on the right. I bought that new recliner for me when I visit. The window at the foot of bed looks out to a couple of bird feeders and the staff told me that deer and pheasants are frequent visitors. I think I may find a low, narrow stand for the foot of the bed and buy a small TV. I found that it entertained her when she was alone in the hospital. Until she is assessed for a proper Geri-chair she is not mobile and I don't want her laying there all day bored.
Sorry I didn't take better pictures but it was a bit chaotic, moving and meeting all new people.
Dark picture but she loves the butterflies on her new quilt. I need to quickly hook a larger rug to go next to the birdhouse rug. Any suggestions?
I will say the staff were very helpful and welcoming. The residents are not lacking for attention in this wing. That is a good thing. Thank you all for the encouragement and support. It has helped me so much as I try to figure out this next new phase in life. It was a very long day. I think I will sleep like a rock tonight
