FIELD TRIP!!! Mom is presently at home, sitting on her couch, enjoying snacks from her cupboard and enjoying the company of her family. She said it felt great to be home. The living room is actually down two steps and there isn't a railing, so she said that was tricky to navigate, but overall, she felt that coming home may be a viable option in the future. I just wanted to make sure she felt safe there, and today, at least for the time she was there, she did.

The worrisome news of the day is that Mom has a little fever. She doesn't have any symptoms or feel bad, but there's a little low grade fever that started to show up last night. When it got a little bit worse this morning, the nurses gave her a bit of Tylenol. For now, we'll just monitor it. If it doesn't go away, or makes Mom uncomfortable in any way, they'll take some samples and see if they can tell what's going on.

I'm trying to figure out how to "sandwich" this post-in fitness trainings, we're taught to sandwich critiques: first tell someone what they're doing right, then provide criticism, then finish with something else positive. I'm trying to end with another positive remark or story, but I think today accurately reflects life as we now know it. There are great things and not so great things, often happening in the same day. Honestly, often happening in the same moment. We just have to take the good where and when we can and enjoy it.
