Mom is now at the point in her recovery that we can start talking about her physical strength being the most important thing to focus on. That is good news. When you cannot breath on your own, you don’t worry so much that you cannot sit up straight. So, the short story is that mom is making good progress on the antibiotics and that she is on target to complete the 21 day course this Wednesday. She will stay in the hospital for a day or two after that for observation and if things go well there (dare we dream) another upgrade.

Mom always has lots of help around but her progress now will be measured by what mom can do for herself, the more the better. Mom is keenly aware of this, try to help her hold her cup and she grabs it our of your hand and waves you away.

Nice to have you back mom!
