Lena's Mom

Lena's Mom came home today.  She managed not too bad for only one leg*.  She did the transfer from wheel chair to car like a pro but had real trouble with the walk, stairs and narrow door at the apartment.  Basically, she clung to Lena and Roman on each side of her and hopped.  She was dead tired by the time she got to her room, though she didn't lie down but sat up for a bit at least. 

I stopped at the florists and bought her a big bouquet of flowers to celebrate. 

We need to get her wheelchair now from the agency that supplies them.  Come warm weather she will get out more and get used to using her crutches. Before long I hope she is truly mobile again.
