GOOD FENCES #16

Today my husband and I drove to the retirement home where my parents live. My mother was told a week ago that she has cancer, metastasized to almost all organs (no pain). She came home from the hospital and the nursing staff gives loving care to her. We, as children are coming every day now, so she and my father will not be alone.

Persoonlijk
Vandaag ben ik met J. naar mijn ouders geweest. We kregen vorige week donderdag te horen dat mijn moeder kanker heeft en niet meer beter wordt. Ze kwam maandag thuis uit het ziekenhuis en wordt nu liefdevol verzorgd door het verplegend personeel daar. Wij als kinderen zijn er iedere dag om beurten, zodat zij en mijn vader niet alleen zijn.

Yes: knitting next to the bed of my mother ♡

On the way home we drove through the countryside. It's GOOD FENCES day and I have made two photos while we were riding. An iron fence in a pasture. And a hedge as fences. Ugly photos. But real Dutch landscape, real Dutch kids on the bike. and real Dutch fences.

Uit-de auto foto's
Op weg naar huis reden we binnendoor. Op donderdag is het GOOD FENCES dag voor mij. En als je daaraan denkt, zie je opeens overal Good Fences. Ik nam snel wat foto's vanuit de auto. Een ijzeren hek, een heg. langs de weg. Lelijke foto's met mijn mobiel maar ja, we reden ook hรจ?! En wat een fietsers kwamen we tegen.

  2. Jedidja, I am so sorry to hear about your mother but hope she continues to receive such good care. That vehicle looks pretty intimidating on such a small road. I like the hedges, though I wouldn't want to be the one to trim them!

  31. I'm so sorry to hear about your mother. My mother also has cancer (lung). At the moment it is cleared up and I am thankful for that. Chemo and Radiation are both horrible, but neccesary treatments. Sending hugs your way.
