Mom Came HOME….Butttttt….


Mom came home today!



It was only for a four hour visit again.
(Told my sister Patty that I would use that Butt Shot on the blog)


We broke her out of her “jail” for another four hour visit at home, this time to her home instead of my sister’s home two doors down.


Marcia and I fixed lunch, bacon-lettuce-tomato sandwiches with chips and fresh strawberries, blackberries and raspberries.  Mom said it was the best food she had in nearly a week (remember she was home for Father’s Day, which means Arny’s BBQ, so that means it was the best food in nearly a week.)


You can just see the relaxed feeling she has being at home….she is planning to come home on Friday of next week, and we feel she will be to the point where she can do that.  She is getting out of bed nearly by herself right now, and walking with her walker, and with the lift-assist chairs that her and dad have, finishing her recuperation at home is probably the best thing.

It was a relaxing visit….

As Sandy and I returned mom, this 1931 Model A, was parked out front.  What struck me was seeing this old car, about the age of mom, in running condition, but in need of love and affection….much like the people inside of the Nursing Center.  My brother-in-law Arny has the ability to make this Model A (above) look like this Model A (below)


He has restored many an old car, some made into hot rods, some into original condition (although he typically added extras such as air conditioners).  With people, doctors can never get them back to “original condition”, although they do fairly well about getting them into “running condition” when certain parts break down.  


However, with people, the aches and pains of being old just don’t go away. This old Model C sure shows its aches and pains, which made it fitting to be parked where it was….in a handicapped parking space in front of a Nursing Center.  I hope this old car continues to be in running condition for many years to come.


  1. Glad to hear about your mother's progress. I'll bet your sister wants to kill you for that picture. So nice for your parents to have her living just two doors down. Every parent's dream.

  2. Your mom looks (in these pics) so very happy being at her own home, again! I'm happy for her I'm sure God will provide for her, and will continue praying for her, you and your family.

    1. Yes, mom was very happy. Last time she went back because she was tired...this time she went back because she knew her 4 hours were up. Next time she won't be going back...

  3. Delighted to see Aunt Dorothy looking so good! Please give her our love.
