While all foods can be a part of a healthy diet, I believe that moderation is the key. For yesterday's lunch, I appreciated the sandwich station where you can request whole grain breads and vegetables. We all know that so many people have health problems related to poor lifestyle habits.
So many have expressed concern for mom. Thank you for all of your calls and emails.
Her surgery was successful, and her doctors are satisfied with her progress so far. Considering she is 89 and has a heart condition, they say she is doing as well as can be expected.
This is her 4th day in the Critical Care Unit. She is here because her heart rate was too high, and blood pressure too low, but medications are being adjusted to stabilize this.
She wondered if I was watching TV up over her left shoulder...so I took a pic to show her the 'TV' that is displaying her 'numbers'. She also wondered what that clicking noise was to her right...so I will show her this elaborate tower that holds her IV lines.
We visit in short spurts, between naps. She wanted to talk about lefsa. She says she can't find it in the store. I reminded her that no 'store-bought' lefsa is as good as the lefsa we make ourselves. This year, she peeled all the potatoes. We made a double batch.
She likes to watch over us as we roll and turn them on the griddle.
She is so pleased that the next generation will carry this family tradition forward.
