Mom's BFF stopped by at 9:30 this morning so Dad could get "a little bit of fun time" and go outside to hit some golf balls. It's Saturday for him, too. This always thrills me. The first time he left Mom's side to do something other than shower and change his clothes was my bridal shower, a full three months after Mom went to the hospital. Since then, he's taken a handful of hours to himself to hit golf balls, watch TV at home and make popcorn.
Mom had a good day, too. She enjoyed knowing that Dad was getting some fresh air and always loves spending time with her girlfriends. Ross came over in the afternoon when Dad came back. I missed out on the family time, but got a good chat in with everyone.
I plan to head back in about two weeks. Very much looking forward to it.
