Ever So Grateful
The beautiful woman in all of these pictures is my mother-in-law. She loves, loves, LOVES her grandchildren. Ian and Laurel both love her immensely. It is delightful to watch the three of them interact. Up until recently, the interaction has been limited due to her being on oxygen.
However, thanks to modern medical practices, she recently underwent a double lung transplant. Oxygen tanks are now a thing of the past. As her strength improves, her activities with Ian and Laurel will change. Soon, she will take them for a walk at a park, a museum or perhaps the zoo. In the not too distant future, she and Dad will join our little family up in the mountains for the Highland Games. Towards the end of summer, we're planning a trip to San Diego where she can run after Ian and especially Laurel along the beach.
I am extremely grateful that my mom had an opportunity to improve her health. She is a brave woman for undergoing such extensive surgery. Her determination is obvious as her health improves dramatically each day. I look forward to the many different activities she is going to push on the rest of us in her family. Go ahead, Mom, push away!!!
