Days 9-12

Anyone familiar with the song "Popular" from Wicked?
Imagine Kristin Chenoweth singing...

Laaaaa Laaaaa La-a-a-Laaaaa!

That's exactly how I've felt these past four days about Mom. :)

She found out she is deficient in iron...better than deficient in other things, but still important to rectify. Not that this was necessarily good news, but it did explain why she kept having such intense weak spells. I think just knowing WHAT the cause was made a huge impact on her state of mind. She'll have a whomping 3-hour iron infusion on Tuesday when she goes in for the next big fill-up, but until then guess what's been happening??

Mom has felt GOOD! (insert La-La's here)
She drove Daddy to a doctor's appointment and then...drum roll please...made it in to work for TWO days for a FEW hours each day!! Gloryoski! (as my Granddad always said)
She was, of course, tired after each excursion...but not weak or sick. Awesome!

It gets better.

Mom and I had a date this morning. She brought Daddy over to hang out with the kids so she and I could enjoy a movie at the Monaco. Glee in good!
Now she can enjoy another Sunday at church and a good solid Monday of feeling good before the truck comes barrelling down the road again.

Not much in life is better than spending time with your mom.
Especially when she's feeling GOOD!

I really like that word.
