Post Happy 80th Birthday!!
My mom turned 80 yesterday and we had a nice party for her on Sunday for family only. In our case family includes 10 children, 20 grandchildren and 20+ great and great great grandchildren! About 35 people were here and she only mis-identified one person (thought her 40something grandson was his 22 year old son, the dad was thrilled! :lol: ). Everyone stayed less than 3 hours, which was perfect, she felt very special but it didn't exhaust her.
I mentioned in another post that her heart is functioning at 35% and we went to her PCP yesterday and found out that at her last US in 2009 her heart function was 65%, so this is a significant loss of function and makes me really sad. As much as I don't want my mom to suffer from the effects of all of her illnesses ( and right now she's doing great cognitively), at heart I'm still her little girl and want to keep her alive forever. :cry:

If I had that many relatives I think I'd be hard-pressed to remember who everyone is! Your mom was remarkable if she only got 1 mixed up! Glad you had such a lovely event, and it's hard to imagine that 3 hours and all those people didn't exhaust her. Lynn
