We went to Manor Care last night and it was a nice visit. Joe's wife Lois is staying one the same floor as him now and they are both very happy about that. And I must say that although Joe is losing weight and is posture isn't too good anymore (he is 91), his mood and spirit has increased dramatically since he gets to see his wife all day. They get to eat lunch and dinner together and hang out all day watching TV and reading. I've very happy for them both.
But on a sadder note, my friend Pearl passed away on Saturday:( She would always be laying in her bed and when we'd come in her face would just light up and she would get soooo excited. The last time we were in she was actually sleeping, but mom knew she would want to see us so she let me go right up to Pearl and I gave her a kiss. That made Pearl so happy and I'm glad I got to see her like that since it was the last time I would ever see her. I knew something was wrong when we went in her room and visited with Virgie, but mom wouldn't let us go to the next bed (there was no one there)even though I kept pulling. Mom was really upset because we were suppose to visit last week, but the vet appointment was done so late and mom had one of those nasty headaches so we didn't stop. Mom shouldn't feel bad though cause Pearl will always remember us the way we were and especially the way I woke her on our last visit. Pearl was a wonderful person who we all will miss.
Tonight we have a visit with Danny and I'm looking forward to it cause it's so nice out and we walk and play with him outside. I'll be sure to let you know how it went. I hope you are all able to enjoy some of this beautiful fall day!
