Mom looks pretty ok today. Her eyes are bright and she is doing fairly well. She has digressed after the last stroke on Feb 2, but she is ok. She won't sit up as long as she did before and now she is having a little trouble swallowing.
Dad is good, I got him new blades for his electric shaver (the old one) and it works much better and I got him looking pretty good.
I am still trying to get to talk to the doctor. Lori (the RN at DM) said she know we want to talk to him and he has been busy and will give him till tomorrow to call us, then she will start to bug him. She said according to her it would be ok to move mom the first week in March, but as she says, she isn't the doctor. So the tenative plan will be to get an RV (the therapist said she can't sit up for longer than a few hours and the plane trip would be too long for her to sit without laying down for a while).
We can get it On wednesday after work (March 3rd) and have Anna, Mary Jerry Kelley and Buddy/Donnie and head to fl. We can go a ways that night and finish up on Thurs. This leaves us Friday to pack and move out. We can get rid of Dad at Dottie and Frank's and pack the RV & a pull behind trailer. We get Dad and leave from their to get Mom at DM. We will have their car and 2 can drive the car behind the RV. So we would have Tom, Jerry, Mary, Kelley Mom, Dad and maybe a nurse in the RV.
Anna and Buddy could drive the car (or we can swap out people in the car). We haul ass to TX and Dad and Anna would go to her house while we un pack mom and the trailer. After the Apt is set up we bring dad to VOP.
Joan would stay in Atl and come down spring break to finish up the house.
Joan would be here next week (Feb 23)
Tom would do Dad care/moving the week of Mar 1 and Tom could go home from houston on Sunday after the move.
So here is a tentative or first stab at an RV moving plan.
Love and hugs to all,
