Update On My Mom.

Thursday, March 29, 2012

I went to the nursing home today. Mom was off of the IV, dressed, and sitting in her wheel chair near the Nurses' Station. I went and stood in front of her and said, "Hello Mother." She can talk today and I can understand her. She doesn't have much volume in her voice, but her words were clearer and I didn't have much difficulty understanding what she was saying. She also fed herself, right-handed, and crossed her right leg over her left knee. God is good!!!!! I am so happy about her improvements. She isn't eating and drinking enough and needs prayer that she would do that.

I went to the doctor today. My weight was 239 pounds, I finally got 30 pounds off again. My son and his girlfriend have started an exercise program. My son took my scales the other night and messed with them, now I can't weigh myself.
BP 120/60 and all was well.

  That is wonderful news about your Mom. I will continue to pray for her and hope that she begins to eat more.
emoticon on your weight loss. I think that I would ask your son to either fix your scale or buy you a new one. He should appreciate how hard you are working to lose and also realize all of the stress you have been under and try to make your life easier; not harder or more stressful.
Take care......

    I'm so happy to read this blog. I'm glad your mother is progressing so well, it must be wonderful for you.
What an amazing BP reading, if it continues like this you will be certain to have your meds reduced.
so your son has wrecked the scales, he'll just have to replace them!
best wishes, Sandra
