Looking Happy

A friend I have not seen in a while told me that I looked happy and how it made her happy. It also made me happy. I have been having a rough time mood wise and I am happy it did not really show. It is a sometimes internal struggle and I don’t want to be told that I am looking sad or down. I was surprised to find out I looked happy. Smile

Tomorrow is going to be a challenging day. I am taking the day off to take Mom for an MRI. They are concerned she can not move her toes on one foot and her whole demeanor has gone down hill. So I am picking Dad up and we will take Mom out to the MRI place. Dad took her to the doctor’s office today and it went well. I was a little worried it was going to be one big problem but Dad said it went well.

When I went to visit Mom yesterday, she was not very lucid at all. She barely looked at me and she did not talk to me. I stayed for a half hour and tried to talk to her but she was not very reactive. It is really hard staying there a long time when she is like that. It just tears me up. Hopefully, the MRI will show something, even if it only is the progression of the disease.

I did an half hour on the elliptical and got some walking in today. Food wise, I ate well and got a lot of vegetables in. I had a salad for lunch while I read my book.

  1. Just randomly stumbled upon your blog. But after reading what you're recent post was, I'm glad to see that you're happy. I'm not too sure what's wrong with your mom, but I'll keep her in my prayers.

    And the elliptical is the best way to get in shape (in my opinion) I'm freaking sweating after like 3 minutes on the damn thing. The only thing that gets me through it is playing 'survivior' by destiny's child over and over and over haha. following you!

  2. Keeping your mom in my prayers!

    Sometimes, being able to successfully put on a happy face and hide the depression from the outside world is the only way to get through.
