Wednesday, November 5th
All is well here in Deltona, Mom is doing well today. We didn't get to see her till after Noon today since I had to go to see the Rehab Center and the housekeeper came at 10am.
Mom was on a tilt table when we came. She had been on it for an hour or so. They put the patient on the table and strap them on and then they tilt it so they can put weight on their feet. There is a foot rest on the bottom and it looks like a "L". The therapy really tired her out today, so she was snoozing a lot when we were visiting.
Jan, the therapist, had her do the sitting on the side thing again today. She was better than yesterday and she stayed longer by herself this time maybe 10 seconds instead of 2.
Mom had a student nurse helping out today and yesterday. She is very good with Mom. She told me that the regular nurse saw Mom move her toes on the right foot (this is her bad side), so YEA MOM!!
Dad was a little bored today and we left early and got back to the house at 4:30 today. So we didn't spend a lot of time there today. But Dad got so amused today, we were riding the elevator up to see Mom and there was this little girl with her mom in the elevator with us. The little girl (about 2 to 3 years old) looked at her mom and said "You Farted" the mom denied this and the little girl said "yes you did". Dad had a really good laugh at this.
Oh, and I forgot to tell you a few things from yesterday. I was looking at Mom and I looked up and saw Dad walking out her door. I looked back at Mom and said that Dad was escaping and I would have to go after him and I sware I heard her say "UH Huh". My second thing is that Dad and I were leaving and we were stuck in traffic (I think there was an accident on 17-92) and the traffic was backed up to the hospital. As we were sitting there, I looked over to the lake and saw a huge alligator watching the fishermen about 50 feet from him. The gator was only about 10 feet from the shore.
Well, I got to run and get some supper on the stove for us.
Oh, and as I was writing this, Dad took the rest of his pills for the day. He took the 5pm's and the 9pm's. OH well, I guess I wasn't watching to close this time.
Have a great day!
Love, Mary and Ed
