April 24, 2010 joycepsouth

Mom is a very determined woman. They told her she would start getting up today. She got up and sat for 10 minutes last night about 8:00, then again this morning at 4:00 a.m. for about thirty minutes, and we have just now gotten back in the bed exhausted after a bath and sitting up for 30 minutes. I am so proud of her and her determined spirit. She has not walked since Friday of last week. So she will have to make small steps, but every step of progress in moving in the right direction. Thanks for everyone’s comments. We love our family and friends. This is such a great way to “reach out” to everyone in this new age of communication. Thanks to Ron for thinking of it and getting the “ball rolling”. Love to all –Have a great Saturday!

    I’m not surprised by her determination. Being a strong willed person has its benefits. Plus she is a woman who loves her children, grandchildren, and life. Surgery and chemo is not going to keep her down!
