…and still here

Mom is back in rehab and doing well, but that still means she can’t use her right arm at all and can sort of move her right leg. Her speech is usually slurred, although sometimes is very clear. Most of the time she totally understands what you say to her; other times she sort of seems out of it. She can’t sit up without help much less stand. But bless her heart, she is giving her all in therapy – even when the doctor – for some unknown reason – gives her a drug that makes her blood pressure drop so low that all she can do is sleep. (That one has been discontinued.)

I was thrilled that John was here last week and sad to see him leave Sunday morning. He let me sleep in and took the breakfast shift with Mom – now I have to get up early – ouch!

Thanks for all the words of encouragement.
