Morning Everyone,

Today is Friday and things here are ok.  Mom kinda had a bad day yesterday.  She was looking pretty good when we got there for lunch and I got her a bowl of chicken noodle soup.  She ate it just fine and was looking for more, but they were out of it.  Lunch was a bit late (12:45) and everyone was waiting.  It finally came and Mom took one bite of the meatloaf (made with onion, bell pepper, red peppers) and threw up.  I got the nurse and they said to just try to eat the potatoes and see how that goes.  She did fine on the potatoes, so we gave her one more  bite of meatloaf and she started throwing up again.  She ended up throwing up 4 times during while we were there for lunch.

They put her back to bed about 2pm.  She also had dirreha (sp?) twice yesterday.  The staff took her temp and blood pressure and both were ok.  Temp 98.1 and bp 158/72.

We came back for dinner at 5pm and I gave her some beef vegatable soup with crackers.  She kept that down.  I pulled off the cover from her food and they had a noodle salad (cold) and chicken or tuna salad (cold).  Both were made with onion, red peppers and mayo.  I thought that may too much for her tummy and gave her another bowl of soup and some jello.  She kept that down while we were there.  I called back at 9pm and talked to the nurse and she said that she did indeed keep down dinner.   I hope she is better today and hope that she just had a little bug. 

I will let you know how she is today.  Not much else to chat about today.  Yesterday was a bit worrysome, but I guess everyone has their ups and downs.

Y'all have a good day.  I will be going home on Sunday and Joan will be taking over for me, she arrives here sometime Saturday afternoon.

Love and hugs to all,

Mary and Eddie
