New Update

Mom is home! Look Ma no oxygen!

She is doing well and is happy to be home.

Check in on her on Wednesday to say hello.


Tuesday Update

Sorry, I didn't update this yesterday.

I visited Mom on Monday early evening. She was hoping to get checked out on Monday, but it was too cold. She had her IV updated, they were going to remove it, but since she had to stay they had to update it. She was doing good and was glad they kept her one more night.

Today, Tuesday, she is waiting to be checked out as of 3:00 PM. She will be leaving soon though as the doctor approved her going home. She is still going to be on antibiotics at home and still have oxygen. Her Oxygen level is up to 95 today and has been as high as 98.

Dad is waiting for the OK, and they will hit the road.

Update from Mary

Just talked to Mom. She sounds like her spirits are high. She said she is improving every day...and was even talking about things she is going to do "when she gets home". She has her hopes on Monday...but the doctors haven't said anything about going home as of yet. Her oxygen has improved to 93% while on the oxygen. She is able to move around the room on her own now, which has encouraged her as well. Her fever is gone (she has had it go up and down for a little while now-low grade).
She also said she feels like she is taking deeper breaths now!

Thanks for the prayers!!

Friday Update

I visited Mom today and she is improving. Her spirits are good. She seems to be feeling a bunch better than yesterday. I can tell both her and Dad were in better spirits. Mom's breathing was much closer to normal and her color was good. She is very thankful for all the prayers.
If you can stop by and see her. She has some very beautiful flowers from Tina and Dan Jost and family.

Mom Is Resting Better

in her new room.

I hope she can sleep better tonight. Her breathing is still labored; they only just started her latest antibiotics. She needs all of our prayers.

Update from Mary

Talked with Mom this morning.  She didn't sleep well last night because she was up coughing.  She said that the nebulizer was helping when they give it.  She also said that she is still not able to take deep breaths...but hopefully with the iv antibiotics and oxygen it will be helping soon.  She has not seen a doctor yet this morning, but she said that one of the nurses told her she has pneumonia.

Love you all,
