Mom has had a good day today. She has been up and walked to the nurses station again. She is doing exceptionally well according to the nurses “for what she has been through”. I know it is all the thoughts, prayers, and well wishes that have been sent her way. She is resting peacefully without pain medicine. When she hits the bed after sitting up, she rests well. However she is still dreaming – she has cooked egg sandwiches for the grandkids, loaned her car to a friend, decided not to go to a funeral because of the weather, been to Walmart, and made new curtains. When she is sleeping she talks like this, but when she is wide awake, she is back to her old self. For example, yesterday she asked the dr. about his daughter who is getting married. Then just now, she pulled the sheet up and I asked her if she wanted a blanket, her response was, “I am fine, thank you.” THAT’S MOM – always appreciative of others. Thanks for the comments – I am passing all the well wishes along to her each day. Love to all. Joyce

      Thanks so much Karen — you will get a big laugh out of this — when I first read your comment — I thought you had prayed during social studies 🙂 out context and focus is so school related. Hope Trevor did well in FFA this weekend — I am with mom today having an ostomy class to learn how the bag will be attached …. then maybe they can schedule later in the day. Hope you have a good Monday — see you Friday at Ag Day.

    So glad to hear about the progress, Joyce. There’s nothing like a couple of weeks of hospital sensory deprivation to throw off your mental equilibrium and orientation altogether. It happened to both my parents at different times. The latest was about a year or so ago when my mother was in ICU a year and suffered “ICU psychosis,” when she thought at various times she was on a bus and that snakes were infesting the ward. It sounds that despite all she’s been through, your mom is doing remarkably well both physically and psychologically. I know she will bounce back – she’s just that kind of woman.
