Happy Birthday To You, Happy Birthday To You

Mother Dear is 80 years old today!

I have to be available for a conference call today, so I went up yesterday with a whole bunch of stuff. A card, two bouquets of flowers, a little palm plant, some jelly candy orange slices, and a big box of Russell Stover chocolates (thanks for the idea, Greg!)!

She was in a great mood, recognized me immediately, and gave me a big ol' kiss! The staff reports that she's been much better since we added the Xanax back in the morning so that was a good decision.

When I left, I was feeling very good and I think she was, too!

YAY!! So happy to read this post. Feels great, doesn't it?

Mom said...

Sounds like a good birthday. Glad to hear it.

Wow, that's GREAT news. You must be very relieved to have found your Mom more settled. A very Happy Birthday to your Mom!

I've just got home from another visit, myself. Mum gazed at me like a love-struck teen. I have to say that seeing someone light up when I walk in the room like that is bewitching. I wish I could find someone under 80 who felt the same way...
