Mom is pretty easy to surprise! Nurse Diane grabbed the camera to snap one with mom and myself. (Miriam and a Dr. are in the background.)
We got Clayton to smile for this one. He was awake by now!
Taking 2 of the cupcakes back to the room and leaving the rest for the staff, Clayton was ready for cake! I grabbed his bed table and he was set. He had that cake done in no time! He gave mom a birthday card signed, Love Clayton. I know he really appreciates her company each day.
Mom had said she would wait on the cupcake because she had a big breakfast, but then said, "Well, I can't let Clayton eat alone." (Notice his is 2 bites away from being gone! :) It was a nice little party that included Clayton.
You never know how long they will both be with us. We must enjoy and appreciate the wonderful parents we were blessed with and make special moments to remember.
Happy 84th Birthday Lois Lind!
( Note to self, next time, take a picture of the nurses and the cupcakes before they are gone!)
