The Mother's Day Gift 2010


Millie is going in for hip surgery so her thoughtful son Steve brings her the perfect gift for Mother's Day.

Update 5/11/10 12:10 PM:

The surgery was successful and Millie now has a new hip!

Update 5/12/10 10:17 AM:

My mom has two lovely ladies helping her to get up an do therapy this morning.

Update 5/13/10 12:44 PM:

Good News. Moving to rehab tomorrow.

Update 5/16/10 9:28 AM:

First full day at rehab yesterday. My mom is up and walking without the expected pain. She's gone the the 'gym' and is doing all the excercises that the therapists have scheduled. After yesterday's workout, she had cake and lousy coffee. Everything can't be perfect. :-) There's a computer in the activity room so she can read all your comments. She loves reading them.

Update 5/16/10 7:18 PM:

Today we took a walk down the hall, into the elevator, and out to the garden deck. We brought in Dunkin' Donuts coffee as a treat!

Update 5/19/10 11:00 PM:



Update 5/26/10 11:00 PM:

Mom goes home tomorrow. She's doing great and has been taking notes, on paper, in a notebook. She told me that writing is a lot easier with a computer.

Here she is walking down the hall in her scrubs:



Thanks for all your comments.

Steve's gift makes a nice change from an orchid corsage and a trip out for brunch!

It will come in very handy quite soon and I'm glad he was so thoughtful!
 
@Peggy We went out for a nice brunch too!
 
That is both thoughtful and useful! Am thinking of you and sending all my good thoughts for your surgery, Millie.
 
Steve, your mother is a gem! You owe here a gem of a necklace after this surgery and such a practical gift. I nursed my mother-in-law through hip surgery recovery and we also used a bear bell attached to her bed covers because you need to help her in the middle of the night to use your useful gift!
 
A thoughtful gift from a very thoughtful son. You will find it a great help after the surgery. I'll be wishing you the best thoughts doing this surgery!
 
YA HOOOOOOOO FOR THE NEW HIP!!!

I'm so glad the surgery was successful.

Millie, you will really appreciate that Mother's Day Gift when you get home. I have an elevated seat for my toilet, also, and still use it. Getting up from low chairs remains a problem for those of us with new hips.

Congratulations on joining the 'hippy' crowd.
 
ARE YOU KIDDING!!!! REHAB ALREADY!!!!! WAY TO GO MILLIE!!!!!!

Congratulations on your new hip and successful surgery.
