I am glad to say that I have some pictures of Mom to post! (Thanks to my sister, Joy) As Mom has been cooped up, healing, for the last several weeks, she was a little nervous about the prospect of going out to the golf course at Black Butte with Joy and her husband for an afternoon. Joy won a free 18 holes for four golfers at her class reunion last summer and needed to use it before it expired. It gave her a good excuse to come visit Mom at the same time.
In the end, they had a wonderful time, with Dad spontaneously joining in and loving it.
I was shocked at how he fit right in! I know that he doesn't golf, but you would never know it looking at this picture. They said he played a great game too. You're awesome, Dad!
Here she is! I was really happy when I saw this picture. It's the first I've been able to "see" her since her accident. This picture is deceiving, because she looks better than I thought she would. My sister did her hair (hard to do with one hand) and she's out holding the flag for their game. These things are actually a big deal and firsts for her.
She said that "coming out" after her confinement indoors was really wonderful, enjoying the great outdoors by riding around in a golf cart, even though it wore her out. This is a happy victory.
