Can you spot T performing with her class at the Mother's Day Tea Party? They were very good.
Here's T with her friend Lauren.
Friday after meeting with the lawyer, Dot T and I went out for dinner. T had her favorite M&M Sundae. She eats the M&M, whip cream, and a bit of hot chocolate, and leaves the rest for Dot and I. Yummy!

If you're not interested in the details of my mom, read no further. Otherwise:

My sweet mom remains in the hospital. Turns out she has a Left Atrial Fibrulation. The top left chamber on the left in her heart vibrates at times, instead of fully beating correctly. That allows the blood to pool and possibly clot. The clot could then cause either a heart attack or travel to her brain to cause a stroke. Drugs like anti-coagulants and blood thinners can help the situation. However, the biggest risk of blood thinners is if she falls (or my dad drops her). B/c her blood would be so thin, there would be a high risk of hemorraging in the brain. Yikes. That's just more evidence for the judge on why the guardianship must be granted. Court is on monday. We'll see how it goes.

Meanwhile, its looking like my mom will be release sometime next week, probably to Villa Maria "for rehab" we're telling my dad. We'll then work on his issues.

I second all "Anonymous" has said so well. Do it.

A marvelous plan was made in the stars,
to create a miracle across the ocean so far....
Then entwine and weave all the hopes and labor,
it would take to bring us this joy called "Taylor"....
Now three lives are blessed and somewhere in the stars,
the planners are smiling, as we all are.
