Beginning a New Week
Brian again. I talked to Mom yesterday and she sounds very good. Sometime in the next few days, we expect her doctors to declare that her acute medical crisis is over and they don't want her taking up valuable hospital space anymore. She'll still need dedicated care and physical therapy, probably at another facility with the staff and skills to help her. Everything is working toward the goal of getting her mobile, self-sufficient, and able to step out into the world again. There's no reason that can't happen.
I'll keep you posted here, and as soon as we can get Mom hooked up to a computer she can tell you about it herself. For now, I think it's safe to say the emergency is over and the hard work continues.
Thanks for all your e-mails and good thoughts, they mean a lot.
