For as long as I can remember my mother has been cold. She would wear a sweater even on summer evenings. So now that she has been so sick, this effect has been multiplied! We have only been able to get her out of the house once for a ride to look at Christmas lights. I have tried to get her to come out and watch us play ping pong, but she is already cold. So I convinced her that we would wrap her up in blankets, all mummy like so she would be okay. Well we finally got Mother outside to watch us play ping pong. I wrapped an Afghan around her then wrapped her in a quilt. It was a bit stormy and windy and she was okay for a few minutes, but the wind was chilling her head to the bone! So we put another blanket around her head to block the wind and she stayed out there for 3 games!
