I feel so grateful this evening for having this Mother's Day with my mom. It's hard to believe it's been less than a year since she had surgery for tongue cancer. Then, just last night she took a shower before bed, and slipped in the tub. Luckily my dad was here to help me get her up, dressed, and into bed. She's been taking a lot of medications, so it's not surprising that it happened. She felt ok today, just sore. We didn't go out, just had a low-key day watching Parks and Recreation and Downton Abbey, and we got chicken and black beans and rice from La Granga, a really good Cuban fast food chain. Now she's sleeping, and it's still hitting me how lucky I am that she's still here and doing ok.
