Hi! (From My Mom)

 My mom's window at her room (she painted this little church!) She always enjoys plants and flowers in her window.

 

This is Ernestine's daughter, Jamie. Hello!

 Visited my mom today (she loves the potato soup at the restaurant where my younger daughter works and I took her some for lunch today) and also yesterday as I was out of town most of last week. She wanted me to write an update!

She was recently in the hospital a few weeks ago for a UTI and dehydration but last Friday felt well enough to get out and get her hair done, go to TJ Maxx AND go to her favorite thrift store here in Nashville. She's really doing well. I took her to get her knee injections at the orthopedic doctor a few weeks ago as well. Next up is an eye doctor appointment.

She says, "Thank you for your prayers and all the many cards I have received It looks like the good Lord is going to keep me here a while longer."

I think she is doing the best she has all year so it's great to see her up and about. She's doing physical therapy but walking with the walker is tough for her (but she can do it.) But she's in her wheelchair most of the time.

If you would like to send her a card she is still at NHC Place at the Trace, 8353 Highway 100, Nashville TN 37221. (c/o Ernestine Lawson, Room 537).

Thank you all! We are going to try an Ipad out so she can make Amazon orders and possibly blog. She tried a laptop but did not like it.
