It is FREEZING (literally) in Arkansas right now. WHERE IS SPRING?!? Today my mom had to go to the clinic to get IV fluids to help hydrate her. Kids aren't allowed in the chemo room, but Maggie and I went along anyway so we could enjoy the ride there and back with Mom and Dad.
While mom was getting her fluids, I took Maggie down the road to the mall where they have a nice little indoor playground. It was good for her to have a place to run, climb and play on such a cold day.
I am so thankful to report that Mom is feeling MUCH better tonight. She has been so sick the past couple of days that I just dumped tears all over her last night when I went in to hug her goodnight last night. Tonight she was up and around and laughing and visiting with me and dad and my grandma (what a fun surprise to get to see her today!). I had a huge grin on my face when I kissed her cheek goodnight tonight. As she walked back to her bedroom, I called after her:
"You know, Mom, you don't have to feel good for me to be happy. But I sure am happy to see you feeling so good."
