Today, the irrepressible Peggins (aka Mom) turned 83. Sadly, she is spending this birthday in a rehab clinic in New Hampshire. All accounts are that she is doing well, and will be able to go home on Tuesday. Trouble is, she is still in pain, and her surgeon has not cleared her to do any bending or twisting. The normally fiercely independent Peggins will need some help. Fortunately, the team of caregivers at the rehab hospital have done a home evaluation, made recommendations of what modifications will have to occur in the house, and will see to it that she and my older brother make use of the Meals on Wheels program.
So eat a piece of cake in her honor, and continue to hold her in your healing prayers.
