Mom and I decorated some brown paper eggs using paint, glitter glue and sequins. We hung them up to decorate the Easter tree. I thought it looked a little bare so I drafted out some roving bits and draped that around too. We didn't really have enough eggs so I also felted some vaguely egg shaped balls to hang.
I wonder how long it will last. I have it sitting on the air conditioner which I never managed to carry to the garage last fall because the thing is heavy and awkward to handle. The cats like to sit on it and bask in the sun, when it is actually out. The lower eggs and roving will probably be goners early on.
Mom had another seizure Friday and we spent the day in the ER on the advice of her doctor. The little clinic here in town isn't able to do the blood work necessary to check electrolytes. Of course it was terribly windy, major drifting and slippery roads. Cars in the ditch left and right. Joy.
Everything was normal, so now there are decisions to be made about anti-seizure medication. Do any caregivers out there have experience with this? I would love to hear from you.
I almost forgot to share what Mom did in the ER. One of the nurses was trying to get Mom to sit down on the bed, and was talking almost baby talk, in a really high voice, like Mom was a two year old. Mom just looked at her, and then mimicked her voice exactly, same inflection, same high voice. I don't think Mom was even saying actual words, but she definitely let the nurse know who she was dealing with. Yep, she is her feisty self once again.
