Today my mother said this was a once in a lifetime experience. Ha. What a sense of humor. Last week she talked about the 5 P’s of her life – Pillow. Pee, Poop. Pill, and Pain. I’m laughing and crying. Six weeks ago she went to the orthopedic doc wondering about her sore knee. She didn’t want surgery. He wrote her a prescription: You can dance. Then he told her if it hurts too much, do less the next time. This morning I asked her what she was doing for fun. She said talking to me and my sisters. When I reminded her about the ortho prescription, she said, I could still dance with Loretta-a few steps anyway. Once in a lifetime experience.
