I would like to start out today by saying that I am so proud of all the Veteran's that have helped keep our country safe. Thanks to all of you.
I just got of the phone with Aunt D. She said that they got to see Mom at about 12:30 pm. When they got there, Mom was sitting up in a wheelchair in the common area.They had finished with the therapy and were keeping her up. This helps strengthen the back muscles and the stomach muscles. Then the speach therapist came and took her for therapy. They were gone for about 15 to 20 minutes and the therapist told Aunt D that Mom was not focusing on the person speaking. I noticed that she did that with me sometimes. The therapist said that they will work on that with her.
Also, across the hall from Mom is a young woman who Mom knows that has had 2 strokes. So Mom has a friend across the hall from her. A friendly face is a good thing.
They took Dad to supper at his favorite place, Arby's, tonight. He got me to take him there. I think Anna and Tom did too.
Aunt D also got a piece of poster board to attach the pictures we had in Mom's hospital room. She is going to work on them tonight.
Well that's about all for today. Will talk to you tomorow.
Love, Mary & Jerry
