Made it down and back safely. I arranged for Tiki Tour since Mom was always looking for shells and the one tour took us to uninhabited island except for the protected birds. She came back with lots of shells since everything I collected was for her. She told relatives where we were so we had influx of visitors and she got to visit with all of them one last time since she won't be able to do the trip again. I suppose my sister enjoyed it. She was in pain constantly. I don't know about my great niece cos she sulked half the time because we didn't go on a couple tours every day and she didn't want to walk on beach, collect shells, or swim. I did discover her problem with not losing weight. She was always saying she only eats 1 meal a day and was going to cut down to 500 calories a day because 1200 was too much. She's up every 1/2 hr in the night fudge sickles, potato chips, candy, cookies, etc. I said something to my sister and Brandey doesn't consider those as calorie intake since it isn't with a meal. I insisted on the 2 days down/2 back that we stop at restaurant and eat a meal since I don't fill up in the car on the junk and don't eat fast food. And I think I made them feel guilty cos every day I had salad before dinner so they did the same. Overall it went okay. Goal met of getting Mom to ocean one last time. And I caught up on my steps for the month. Glad to be back.
