according to daughter, the intubation tube is out. she is still on oxygen mask. still coughing up yucky stuff. her mental condition is dicy. she talked about a double murder she saw in a bar. never happened. she said she wants more cat. she has six. the nurses keep asking was she suffering from dememtia and from how long. she was not in any fashion demented. i felt was drugs but daughter says not on pain meds. anymore. .

she went to big cheese at hospital and said she wanted her mom evaluated. mentally. for two weeks she has had a very hard time of it. i would be a little mental myself. not trying to gloss it over, but it needs to be assessed. she knows president, date and so on. i feel a tiny bit better but don't think we are out of the woods yet. we have been here before.

Babe,
if you've been there before they know who you are. I'd just show up and visit with her..If you get lucky she might be alone and you can just visit and see for yourself how she is doing without anyone interfering. I pray you find her doing better,
kades

my visit got moved to tomorrow. daughter called said she was going to leave that moment instead of 6 pm we had set. i was still in p.j. there house is in same park as mine, so couldn't make it that fast. said she is tired and doesn't want to go twice. what is she covering up? i don't drive, if she pulls this tomorrow will find a ride some where else. cab rides is 24 dollars. can't spend that.

she says wallie is the same, and that is good.

she is still holding on with only oxygen in her nose thing. but they have added a tube down her throat to try and clear up lungs. suck up the liquid in them i guess. she is still mentally confused. can't pass the swallow test, so no food. were going to move to extended care. guess not, as she tried once again to escaped. more drugs and maybe restraints . daughter seems to be hot on the restraints. she told me that she is not physically or mentally able to care for her at home. she has written her off i think. up tomorrow , again to see.

she looked good to me this am, up sitting in chair. p.t was there, had her stand and march in place. she got tired very quickly but did well. they are talking bout moving her still. but didn't pass swallow test again. she did not sound crazy to me. i think it is looking better.

Babe, I apologize. I have been away from DC for awhile and missed all of this but just read the entire thread. My thoughts and prayers are with you and Wallie. You are such a good friend and I know that she does appreciate it. I will check in as often as I can to see how she, and you, are doing.

You take care of yourself too, please. Love you to bits, you know!
