Good Day! Sunshine!

Thank you, thank you, thank you everyone for you kind thoughts and prayers about my Mom. She is home now and doing as best she can. They will be upping the number of visits the hospice nurses make, so that is a good thing. I hate the thought of her being alone all day, everyday so this should alleviate that somewhat. YAY!

Remember when I mentioned she was being combative the first day? Yep, she was cussing out my sister, the doctors and nurses - which is not like her at all. She also told me the food was "crap" and she didn't want to eat it - also not like my Mom who loves hospital food like you and I enjoy a good steak dinner - well, turns out there was so little oxygen getting to my Mom's brain she went a lil' haywire. She says she doesn't remember any of it, not even what she ate - but she apologized. We told her "No worries" - because honestly? Who can take offense from a person that is oxygen deprived? What is so weird tho' is this is the third time she has had resipatory failure but the first time this has happened.

Also, thank you so much for your good advice and thoughts about my knee. I didn't go to the doctor [hush up] because although it swelled up and turned purple I could still bend it, wiggle my toes and hobble on it a bit. Nothing was out of place and all the tendons seem to be working - so we skipped the doctors, but really? Thank you for your concern. It certainly scared the heck out of me. Bonus! Our bedroom is all sparkly clean. heehee

And a great big thank you to Linda and Marni for calling me and cheering me up. It is always a good day when "Not your Mom" and "Georgia Peach" friends call. :)

Hugs to y'all! Thanks for the support

Glad your Mom is gonna have the hospice nurse in. Makes a big difference. It is real hard to see our "Mommys" not be the strong, capable, women we have always viewed them as. Life is kinda ugly that way....we switch places when our folks get old. My Mom was such a sweet woman and also had similar episodes with hospital and hospice, it was very disconcerting. Hugs to you and yours. I'm glad you survived your knee episode and are on the mend.
