We will call it a good week (and pray for another)
It's been a week again since I have blogged. Mom and I had a good day to see the doctor last week. The doc said that she saw improvement in mom. No new orders and don't have to go back for another year. We went through the drive-thru at MacD's , I got mom a shake and a hamburger and she ate and drank all of it.
Last week was ok, up and down, as usual. Mom seems to be talking more and understanding more. She has walked twice for me in the last few days. She always says, why? and I try to explain that if she doesn't start moving she'll get weaker. Today she said, "If only I could fix this" and she patted her mouth.
I took the grand-daughters with me on Saturday night and that really helped. They are so good with her, especially Anna. She listens to her and reads to her. Shelby performs, she dances and makes faces, always makes mom laugh.
Mom's roomie turned 94 last week. Her son and daughter-in-law came in and we had a little party in the room. We got her a card and a necklace. She loves jewelry and make-up. She's something , a little spit-fire. Mom laughed quite alot that day and talked more, too.
What a difference from 2 weeks ago. Those uti's are awful. The bad part is getting someone to listen to me. She is my mother, I know when something is wrong.
There are some new cnas on 3-11 shift and I think there is a big improvement. That makes me rest a little easier.
My brother is still fighting I talked with him today and his voice sounded so strong I didn't think it was him. He was moved into the bigger room at the hospice house, which is good, the other one was so small. We are planning on going up on Sunday after church.
Hope to be on chat tomorrow night, I am really enjoying it. Though I don't add much, I just like listening to everyone else.
