This is where I'm spending my days right now, with my mom at the Life Care Center.
She has good care, plenty of physical therapy, and it's a nice facility.
Of course, she would much rather be home but it's going to be a good while before that can happen.
It takes a long time for things to heal when you are 90.
The dining room is elegant even, with lovely tablecloths and crystal and silver table settings.
On the left is an ice cream parlor which is open for a while everyday with free cones and bowls for anyone.
There are two therapy dogs who come and go.
This is Cricket, a teacup Schnauzer. She weighs six pounds and comes every day.
They say she gets bored if she has to stay at home.
She is quite used to posing for photos and needs no leash.
Can you believe those ears?!!
And here is Jingle Bell. She used to work four hour shifts as a greeter at Walmart.
Now she is very old and the pace of a care home is more to her liking.
Mom isn't fond of the food here so we bring fresh fruit, dark chocolate, and yesterday we brought her favorite grilled shrimp tacos from the marina.
They are soooo good!
So that's where we are, making life's lemons into lemonade.
