Thank all of you for your prayers. My mother was released from the hospital Friday and went to a rehab facility to build up her strength before going home.
It was very bothersome seeing this 69-year-old generally very sturdy woman so frail. Given the life she's had I am very surprised she's still with us. She wanted to go directly home from the hospital but between me and my two siblings, the doctor and the social worker we convinced her that going straight home would be a serious mistake. I reminded her that being home alone and unattended was what got her in the hospital in the first place. She had been home for several days in bed and her kidneys had nearly failed. The treatment for that flooded her lungs with liquid so that had to be resolved. Also, she has some serious issues from radiation treatment for uterine cancer when she lived in the wilds of Montana.
But thank you and Praise The Lord she is still with us.
