Pretty Good Day So Far

Today has been a really good day so far.  Yesterday was very smooth and uneventful as well.

After the doctors' early morning rounds and breathing treatments from the respiratory therapist - Mom got up, had a nice sponge bath and washed her hair.  I put curlers in again today!  She spent 30 minutes with an occupational therapist working on her stiff joints and tight muscles.

Cathy came for a visit soon afterwards.  She returned home from a week-long vacation at the cabin in Truckee.  She had lots of fun stories and great pictures to share with Mom.

Mom and Cathy sharing cabin stories
We let her hair dry out, got it styled nicely and then went for a walk around the ward.

I got the thumb up - hair is good!
I talked her into walking without the walker - just holding onto the IV pole
Checking out a prison patient (with 3 guards!)
She is resting now comfortably in her bed, attempting to sleep - despite all the noise surrounding her !
