Outing

Outings when you’ve sorta still got pneumonia are a big deal.  So, today we went to the beach…. It was a big deal because it’s great to get out, and it was a big deal because it was exhausting and took its toll on mom.

Read for almost two hours–mom her LA Times, me the manuscript I’m editing. Right here. In the car. Periodically looking up to look at the ocean and do a little people-walking-their-dog-watching. Mom in front, me in back. The windows were open, so we caught lots of conversation snippets, too.

I am moved by her pluck.

  1. Pneumonia can be so tough to outrun, especially for an Elder. Bravo to your plucky Mom!
