Tuesday, Nov 4th
Everything here is going well. Mom was doing great today. When we got to the hospital today after running to the grocery store they were just bringing Mom back from PT. When we walked in she had just finished looking at a magazine and turning the pages. The therapist (Jan - pronounced Yon), did some more exercises in the bed. I thought for sure that Mom was going to sleep, but she stayed awake for the entire time we were there except for a cat nap of ten minutes. We come home at 5 pm to get supper ready for Dad.
Mom really looked good today. Later in the afternoon, Jan, came back and was having her sit up. She did it without help for a few seconds. Most of the time she was leaning on Jan, but there for a second or two she was on her own. She is recognizing people when they come into the room and she is turning her head to look at who it is coming into the room.
I spoke with the case worker, Annette, and she said that they were going to send her to the rehab place on Monday. Jan wants to work with her some more before he ships her off. I am going to see DM tomorrow morning. The house keeper is coming tomorrow at 10:30 to 11 so that gives me time to run there in the am and see the place. We most likely wont get to see mom until 1 or so.
That's about all I can think of for now.
Love, Mary and Ed
