Thank you, friends, Aunt, and SILs, for your words of support and wisdom regarding dad going into rehab. Yes, we decided that a rehab facility was the place to be for him. He is delicate and bed bound…he needs round the clock care right now. As much as he disliked the decision, he knows it’s the right one. So he arrived at the rehab facility at 7PM on Friday night and seemed to settle in just fine. But, he called mom at about 10:30 that evening, very disoriented and upset. We rushed over and discovered he was also short of breath and had a low oxygen level(of course, the staff was looking after him by the time we arrived). It was decided to return him to the hospital, by ambulance of course. They tested and examined, and as time went on he improved. Within an hour, he was telling his jokes again! By 7AM, we all went home and he went back to rehab. (That’s only 8 hours in the ER, my rule of thumb is that an ER visit takes 12 hours.) It really was scary for him, and no one knows what was going on. He had a good day on Saturday and Sunday.
I’m teaching a mosaic cross class this April, at 212 Art Center. I’m inspired by the Mexican painted and mosaic crosses( here is a link to my Pinterest board) I’ve discovered and decided to start a couple as samples for the class. It feels wonderful to be breaking glass and fitting together the pieces once again. See the colorful Mexican influence? Just starting:
I have several more crosses ready for tesserae…hope to get on a roll.
Last, but not least….baby pics….hope they make you smile!
