Not much happening today. When we got to Mom's room she was asleep and stayed that way till the therapists woke her up. It took a lot to wake her. Jan had to take her effected leg and straighten it out, and she didn't like it, so she woke up. They had her on the tilt table today and they had her playing volley ball with a balloon. Mom did good. I got a picture of her doing her therapy. When I get the photo's developed, I will send them along on the e-mail. I have to wait till I go home to get them developed. Anyway, she did her excersises then they put her in the big chair and took her to the therapy room (Dad calls it the play room). So all and all Mom was out of bed for two hours today. She fell asleep very quickly after getting back to bed.
Dad and I came home kinda early today, but he is wore out and so was Mom. There is not much use sitting in the room, if Dad is slumping in the chair cuz he is so tired.
I spoke with the doctor today and he said they would most likely move her on Monday to the rehab. He didn't have any good news and frankly said he didn't think she would get any better. I am not sure what to believe since Mom has an inner strength that he dosen't see. I certainly hope Mom proves him wrong.
Aunt Delores and Uncle Bob are coming tomorrow and I have a bunch to teach them before I leave on Sunday. They will be the ones that set Mom up at the rehab. I bet they are going to enjoy the weather here since I saw on the weather report that the high for tomorrow is 39 in Chicago and 83 here in sunny Fla.
Well, I must go and check on Dad he is so tired.
Love to you all,
Mary and Ed
