Mom visited El while she continued living in St. Petersburgh. She even considered for a time buying one of those little places like the one that Eleanor had.
I didn’t think it was such a bad idea because St. Pete is great with seniors. But, it didn’t work out somehow. Eleanor moved back to New Jersey and died up there at her daughter’s house. Ms. Doktorsky, El’s last name if I hadn’t mentioned it, was suffering from a brain tumor when she finally got to see her old friend Agnes again.
There was a nice fellow name Wayne who used to help El around her trailer in St. Pete. I wonder if I have a few pictures of him around the house. I bet I do.
Mom just loves this blouse. Still wears it these days.
When she recovers from this stroke she’ll be wearing it again.
Another lovely image of mom.
This is her when she visited her widowed friend from the Pennsylvania Railroad Eleanor Doktorsky.
I thought mom was going to follow Rev. Vaught into the sky this weekend when she was struck by what is known as a left sided stroke.
It looked very bleak on Sunday when the doctor said mom wasn’t responding, but today she was better.
I visited with her for I think 2 hours.
I sang to her since she can’t speak very well.
I sang Om Namah Shivaya softly.
I had listened to Om Namah Shvivaya on a videotape I own and the beautiful melody was fresh in my mind.
I had been very worried.
It sounded as if mom was going to die. That was my interpretation, but it turns out she is going to make it.
