May 1, 2010 joycepsouth

Mom has had two very good days.  She is able to be up more and more.  Enjoying conversation and visits now instead of being too tired to rest. She is eating and has actually said things are tasting good after over a month where she could hardly stomach the sight of food.  Her voice is stronger and she is making progress in the right direction.

We are so thankful to see her feeling better.  For so long now, she has felt terrible.  There are two main concerns now-  her incision to heal without infection, and her nutritional intake once she is off of her special $1000 dollar a day special nutrition (TPN) that she is getting through iv.  Dr. said we would re evaluate Monday and try to develop a plan to dismiss.

Mom has contemplated going to the Veranda (Assisted Living – Uncle Edgar is there is she is very pleased and fond of this place, she actually helped with a commercial for them) for a few weeks until she gets her strength back.  All of that is still up in the air until the dr. makes his recommendation as to “the complexity of her medical needs”  according to the social worker we met with last week.

We are so thankful to our Gracious Heavenly Father who always works things out for good according to his purposes.  Sometimes we just forget we are not in control and that his plans are higher than our plans.  Thanks for all your prayers and support – continue to remember mom as she continues to heal and recuperate.

    This is very good news. The Veranda is a lovely place and the staff would take very good care of her. It’s good to hear that she is willing to let others help her as she continues to heal. We’ll continue to pray for her progress.
