Stirring the Nest
I've just had my Mom admitted to our private block. She'd fallen and broken her hip, and it was repaired at a state hospital in S.A. But now she has nowhere to stay as her previous residence will be inaccessible to her disability. So here she is. The Lesotho folk very graciously welcomed her, and our little 1st year nursing students bounced into her room all bright eyed and bushy tailed, giving her an eager and cheerful welcome. This brightened her up quite considerably, as she was somewhat disgruntled at being back in hospital, after a long day of travelling, with a blinding headache. Well, i took her some coffee, rubbed her feet and back, tucked in some extra pillows, gave her some pain pills, two young youth pastors came to pray for her, and she looked and felt so much better.
