I spoke with the Purple Lady a couple hours ago. She’s fine, health-wise, but miserable. She’s considered a fall risk, so they have her in a bed with an alarm that goes off every time she gets out. She has to have an escort to go anywhere — even the bathroom. She told me yesterday was a beautiful day, but no one on staff could be spared to go outside with her. She misses her little dog and her little house. Not much I can do about that.
She got the cape I made. Apparently, it arrived after she was moved to the nursing home because she says everyone there has commented on it. She wishes she had a reason to wear it.
I plan on making a trip up there at some point. Whether she’s in the nursing home or in her own little place again (which I highly doubt at this point), I’ll be visiting her in the near future. I’m glad to know it won’t be an emergency trip. I’ll have to be sure to get a picture of her in her cape.
