Hey y'all, I'm back!!

I really don't have alot to report on today.  I got here about 11 and I spent about 45 minutes with Tom at the airport.  Dad stayed at Dottie and Frank's while we swapped at the airport.  Tom was afraid if my plane was late and he had Dad with him, he would miss his plane.  All worked well.

Dad and I came back to the house and then I took him to have his blood drawn.  It took me a while to find out where to take him to get it done, but it is done for the month.  After the blood test we went to see Mom.

It was the first time that I have seen her since just after the stroke.  She physically looked great.  Her color was good, her incisions were healing well,  and most of the bruising had gone away.  She had just finished her PT when we arrived at 3 and she slept most of the time.  She did wake up and I think that she recognized me.  The nurse, Roz, came in to feed her and she turned her head and eyes to look at her to see what she was doing.  She didn't stay awake long and at 5pm Dad wanted to go home.  We told her we would be back tomorrow and that it would be her birthday.  She seemed to perk up at that anouncement.

The technician, Naomi, came in and told me that DM came over today and did an evaluation on/of her and they said that they would accept her as a patient.  I haven't gone over there yet, maybe tomorrow, to see it too.  Anna and Tom both like it and feel that it would be the best for Mom.  From what I have heard, it sounds good to me.

Well, that is about all from me today.  I will have more to chat about tomorrow.  I can't wait to see her do the PT.  Jon, the therapist, said that she did great today!

Thanks for everything.

Mary and Ed

PS Mom's Birthday is tomorrow!!!
