My Mom

Some of you knew Mom was rushed to the hospital late Wednesday night and admitted to ICU (and thank you for all the kind words, emails, calls, concern and prayers)... I wanted to let everyone know that after being moved to another hospital on Thursday afternoon to have a drainage put in for the nasty, nasty infection on her back, she is doing much, much better now! She's in a normal room now and was given the okay to get solid foods as well, however she will probably have to stay in the hospital for another week or so. She's in better spirits than I think she has been in weeks (my what getting rid of pain does!). We're still unclear of the exact cause, but they are thinking it may possibly be an appendix issue now and will do yet more tests in a couple days...... thank you again to everyone keeping Mom in your thoughts & prayers!

On a side note, I did enjoy a wonderful day in Maine with
Joanne yesterday (Mom insisted that I had to go and not "sit and stare at her" all day, esp given that she was quite stable and on the road to recovery as of Thursday evening). I'll blog about it later in the week, but it was one of the best days ever... a great friend, 4 yarn stores, a on fire luke warm credit card, an absolutely awesome Double Knitting class and a little "detour" to Massachusetts on the way home (oops!)........ story & photos to come soon!

I'm so glad to hear your Mom will be OK! As my parents age I start to think about their health and what might be down the road.

Sending you hugs and well wishes!

It must be a big relief to have her on the road to recovery. She probably WAS getting tired of everyone sitting and staring at her. A yarn day sounds great!

I hadn't heard that your mom had gone to the hospital, but I'm relieved at the outcome, regardless :) Here's hoping she's home sooner rather than later.

I'm glad to hear that your mom is better. What a scare for you! I think taking time out with Joanne was a great idea. You don't want to get extra stressed out and get sick, too! Take care and big hugs!
