No, Iâ€™m not calling myself â€œMommyâ€ now and saying that Iâ€™m back. My mom IS back, back from the hospital I mean.
Mommy canâ€™t walk yet, her right side of the body is still very week. Thatâ€™s actually what was affected by the second stroke she had in the hospital. But thereâ€™s still hope. The physical therapist said that she can still gain back her old strength through therapy in two months or so. That is so good news for us.
Itâ€™s not easy seeing Mommy this way. When she needs to sit up, I have to practically carry her. Dad usually does that, but I had to do it myself thrice or more today because Dad was busy fixing up the room where my Mom was going to stay. The first time I had to help her up, she cried. She saw how much difficulty I was going through, and she knew deep down that she had brought this upon herself due to her chain smoking and not listening to the doctorâ€™s advice. I didnâ€™t say anything. I donâ€™t need to say itâ€™s her fault, and I donâ€™t think I want to. I can see that sheâ€™s really guilty about what happened. I mean, even though she couldnâ€™t speak properly, she tried to tell us that weâ€™re going to spend a lot on her medicine by pointing at the paper where the doctor put down everything that she needed to drink (theyâ€™re around 8 medicines I think). When we asked her if sheâ€™s worried about how weâ€™ll pay for it, she nodded. You can see she was crying.
Iâ€™m going to apologize in advance now to the people emailing me or asking me for help in Flash. Sorry guys. Iâ€™m going to try my best to respond or help you when I have the time. Iâ€™m going to have to work double-time now, and be extremely busy. I need to work on as much projects as I can to help out here at home. What weâ€™re spending on medicines is no joke, both my sister and my mom require expensive ones. Iâ€™ll probably still blog once in a while, Iâ€™m going to need an outlet you know What I can promise though, is that Iâ€™ll reply to emails everytime I get a bit of free time.
I relaunched my portfolio site, www.gaildelacruz.com. New design, and much easier to update. Pass by if you have time.
I gave Choknat and Harry hair cuts. I wanted to give Sheero one too, but she didnâ€™t want to. Kept squirming and wonâ€™t stay put. I guess she thinks the little boy doggiesâ€™ cuts were ugly. Hehe. Iâ€™m no expert! Anyhow, they still look cute. Hehehehe they look like â€œpoodlesâ€ now! Iâ€™ll post photos when I have time.
