We make a good team

I stopped by to see Mom after work today – to drop off some Ensure and some of the flavored creamers she likes for her coffee and just to check on how she was doing. I stayed for about half an hour, just sitting and holding hands while she watched the 5:00 news with some of the other residents.

During a commercial, she turned to me and said “I’m glad we have each other.”

“Me too!” I said, with a big smile and a squeeze of her hand.

She commented on all the things that have happened to her in the last year, adding that “when you’re in the hospital, you NEED family.” I told her that I wished we had more family close by, and she smiled and said “You’ll do.”

“Yeah,” I answered. “We make a pretty good team, don’t we?”
