Another Update

Today went by really fast. I’ve been trying to think over what I did all day and I really can’t think of much. It was an unproductive day I guess. My Mom woke up this morning though with an appetite. She was able to eat eggs, toast, cereal and oatmeal…I think. ☺ I was very happy to see that she was eating real food, not just liquids.

Today was supposed to be my Mom’s day off but she wanted to do some therapies. She started with Mag Ray and instead of them putting the lamp on her tumors they put it on her side. She was still complaining of pain. After 20 minutes of that therapy she had 20 minutes on the Spinalator. This one used to be my Mom’s favorite. Today when she did it, it hurt her really bad. She said everytime it got to her back it was so painful. So, after her time was up, she said she needed to rest, and couldn’t do anymore. So she slept a little and then started complaining that her shoulder hurt. It’s weird, once we get one thing under control, something else starts to hurt. She is never comfortable or happy. The joy is gone…in our whole family. I miss it.

For lunch today David wanted to do something special for the staff here. So he payed for us to get tacos for everyone. I was able to go with Oswaldo to the taco stand and we bought 30 tacos. These are huge tacos, but so good! It was a lot of fun watching them make the tacos. The guy was so fast and proficient. He would toss the beans up in the air and catch them with the tortilla and then add the salsa, guacamole and cilantro, all within like 5 seconds. RAPIDO!

David Ingrassano, the guy making the documentary, is here for the weekend. He came to do some interviews and also to see my Mom. The weekend should be a little better having some company! We are also looking forward to our visit with friends from California tomorrow. They are such an encouragement to me, they were the ones at the airport in San Diego when my Mom had her seizure.

I’m looking forward to going home and getting ready for Christmas. I can’t believe it is already that time of year. It’s strange because in August when my Mom was diagnosed they gave her one year, if they are right, it is hard to think that 3 months have already passed…That would mean only 9 left. Time goes by fast…………

It is strange to think, in times like these, that the apostle Paul said he had learned to be content in all things. What a challenge. ...only in Christ. We can't do it. Look for Him... He wants you. It is a strange mixture of feelings to hurt and still have peace and contentment in Christ. Still praying for you...Barbara
