My thoughts and prayers are with you and your Mom. Here's to a speedy recovery.

Finally things have started clicking for me, my knees, my elbows, my back, etc...

Thanks so much everyone. I am exhausted. The roads were so bad that they asked folks not to be on them but I had to be with my mom. A 10-15 minute trek to the hospital took me 45 minutes. The way home, not much better--a half hour.

My mom is stable. Her lungs are loaded but she is drinking fluids and I am getting her to eat some. She is lucid and knows where she is at and I am very happy about that. I am beginning to think that she was over-medicated on top of everything.

I'll be checking things out for a bit, then off to bed for me.

Thanks so much for giving us the update. I'm glad she is doing better and very glad you made it home safe.
Take a good long rest. Easy your bones. And have a good night.

I'm glad you made it there and back safely. I pray you are sleeping well, and I pray that your mom's health continues to improve.

Dear Susan, I am glad that your Mom is doing better. It's tough to see your loved ones go through things like that. She is blessed to have you, and I believe you are blessed to have her as well. Good, loving parents are a precious gift.

I will pray for your Mom.

Mom update:
She has both bronchitis and pneumonia--lower right lobe but she is not aspirating food. Twice a swallow test was performed and she did well.

I shall be devastated if she dies and if she lives and further declines because of weakness and dementia, I will be devastated as well.

I have no desire to have to use her living will and hope that the issue never arises. I pray that it is taken out of my hands.

I have been crying at the hospital and crying when I saw Dave had passed. Today has not been a good day.

Peace be with you all and thanks for all your kind thoughts, prayers and concern. I am besides myself.
