mama's V-E-T visit

well mama got some unkind news today. she's shrunk by nearly 2 inches! she's been proud of being half inch shy of 6'. now she's less than 5'10". the nurse said 'oh, this is very accurate'. darn it!

otherwise, mama's lab work is coming in (love those reports available on their website!), and it looks pretty good. that's a nice relief.

last night, mama went with her friend from out of town to meet a composer/arranger she's always admired. it was a great evening to talk and listen and laugh. mama's going again tomorrow night.

tonight, though, she's staying home with me. we're just going to be quiet. maybe she'll turn on that electric fireplace and cuddle up with me and a book.

I hope you've had a nice evening together, and that *all the lab reports look good for your mom. Send her my love.

I did that shrinking thing, too. Strangely enough, I also lost two inches, from 5'8" to 5'6". I hope your Mom gets some relief from her insomnia. That is a real pain. Thank you for visiting my blog and adding me to your favorites list. I will add you to mine, as well. Oh, I haven't done a limerick on Daisy Mae Maus yet, but I am working on one for her. It doesn't want to work right, but I'll get it eventually.

Sorry to hear that your mom has shrunk! I hope that all the lab work comes back just fine.

Shrinking doesn't seem good! But I am glad the other lab work is ok. Sounds like yer mama had a fun evening out! Woohoo!

Sounds like the nurse's measurement wasn't too accurate ... Your momma's not shrinkin' 'cuz my mom's over 5'10 and your momma was taller last August. Me thinks there's inaccuracy afoot!
