Mama’s eyes were open when I arrived and what a difference it appears to have made! She was alert and lively for most of my visit. Ms. Othello was, fortunately, asleep for most of our visit, so we had minimal interruptions from the peanut gallery. 😉 Really, Ms. Othello is a sweet heart.

Though hard to rouse, Mama was finally able to wake and have a nice visit this morning. Mrs. Othello, sweet lady sitting next to Mama, answered every question I asked of Mama and so she and I had a nice visit too. Two visits for time cost of one! 😉
My heart aches for my darling wife and the French and Smith families. May remembrances of Betty Ellis and Mike Smith remind us of all our blessings and our shared loved this advent season.

She was in fine form with “Santa”!
Katherine, Allison and I had a nice visit with Mama Friday. She seemed to really enjoy our visit and was not unhappy when we left.
Katherine handed off a cold to me yesterday morning, and we are hoping I do not re-infect her in the coming days!

Had a great visit with Mama this morning! She stayed remarkably alert throughout and laughed at all the right times! 😉
It seems 9:30 is the ideal time to visit. Though her eyes were closed when I walked up, she was not actually sleeping … yet.
Caught Mama having breakfast again and she was doing great! We had a nice long visit and she was not sad to see me leave. Visits just don’t come better, these days.

Sat with Mama while she ate breakfast this morning. It was nice to be with her whilst she was awake and bright eyed, but not amongst the rest of the diners in a crowded dining room. Not much interaction to speak of, but she was happy and apparently feeling good.
Over the last few weeks I have posted a couple new videos of Mama, at the link below.
As I always post these updates at http://dolorespylant.com, you can always find photos and links from these email updates there.
Hope this email finds you all doing extraordinarily well! Katherine, Allison and I are doing fine. This weekend we’ll be with friends, all walking for MS, which should be fun.
Mama was not able to sufficiently awake for a visit last week, but was pretty sweet when I first arrived. She did eventually open her eyes, she was calm and returned my gaze, but did not say anything beyond what you hear in the video, here: https://youtu.be/4uxQ8C_S-hY

Mama was really upbeat today and we had a fun visit. She “stayed with me” the entire visit and accepted my leaving with grace. One for the books for sure!
