Description from Leigh D: Found out yesterday that my mom was admitted to the hospital with trouble breathing. She is going to be fine and the plan is for her to discharge today. My main worry is that her health problems have become more frequent over the last couple of years - a heart attack followed by a few ER visits usually having to do with her breathing (bad asthma). My mom is very active and it is hard to get her to slow down. Guess this is her bodies way of telling her to take it easy. My challenge is going to be to convince her to take the rest of this week off - wish me luck - she is as stubborn as me - wonder where I get it from :-)

    Leigh, sorry to hear about your mom. I hope she listens to you and slows down even though mothers (or is it women) do a better job taking care of others than they do of themselves.

    Thanks Lee – and I think it is women – I have a tendency to do the same thing even though I am not a mom myself. Her breathing was made worse by the fact she has had bronchitis that her antibiotic was not really knocking out – she is being pumped full of IV antibiotics and being given breathing treatments yesterday.

    OH, Boy Leigh! I hope you have sucess in convincing her to slow down! I Know that is something that most women do. We are able to do so much while we are younger, and as we age…. we dont compensate.

    I hope that she begins feeling better and the meds work quickly!

    Hi Leigh, Sorry to hear about your mom. My grandmother was like your mom. We would tell her that we would superglue her to a chair. Buy her a couple of magazines and her favorite drink.

    Aw Leigh, so sorry to hear about your mom.
    It seems like we change roles with them when we get older. :-( It’s our turn to worry about them.
    Hope she recovers quickly and has many, many more healthy, active years with you. Prayers are on the way!

    Nice and beautiful pick to dedicate to your mother. It truely speaks of a strong yet fragile person. I have found myself lately in that position and have had to reflect on the slowing down process. It is not easy. I am now enjoying myself and beginning to relax. It has take me almost 3 years to accept. I still think somedays I am still physically that strong then I have to laugh at myself. I miss the physical activity somewhat but what the heck I have found other outlets for that energy like Lima Beads. LOL This one has got my pocket book in a snit. ROTFLOL.

    Just had the same experience with my sweet mama. She’s 92 and usually healthy but her recent bought with pneaumonia really has her aggravated with her “energy Level” She used to go 90 now she has “slowed down” to 75!

    Leigh, I wish you luck in convincing your mom to slow down. Not an easy thing to do on your own, so hopefully the seriousness of her situation will do some of the convincing for you. You can always play the pity card on her – and tell her how valuable she is in your life… and if she won’t do it for herself, then for you???

    You did create a beautiful pick from your worries, these are gorgeous together!

    Thanks everyone for you kind words and prayers for my mom. She is home now and has been ordered to not work until her dr clears her – she has an appt on monday. She is on oxygen and has a nebulizer, plus some heavy duty antibiotics. I am going to see her on Saturday to hang out and lounge around with her. And as she said I am to bring my Jewels for her to peruse plus she has some pieces she wants me to take apart/fix/redesign – LOL ;-)

    Lynn – I think her doctor knows her well – not only was he her attending when she was in the hospital but he is also her PCP!
