A very slow day for me at CH today (that’s shorthand for Conifer House – for those of you in the know). It was cold and snowy, so my residents were happy to stay inside and drink hot chocolate. I still did a lot of walking because my mama was busy pacing the hallways in her wheelchair. I really miss my rides when mama was using her walker. I rode everywhere with her! I would just curl up on her walker seat and go to sleep.

I wasn’t with mama last night when she went into another resident’s room and fell down. Mama forgets that she needs help now when she wants to walk. The caregivers tell me she is okay and not to worry, but it’s hard not to worry.
