She spent about 45 minutes on the video call with Marge - she really enjoyed it!! With ear buds she can hear the sound and watch video through the computer. It's such a wonderful way to stay in touch with her family and friends. I would encourage all of you to consider this as a tool to visit with Mom remotely.

We are all brainstorming on finding the best communication solutions for Mom. The biggest challenge we will have is the telephone. There are systems in place for the speech impaired, however we would like to try and find something better! If anyone has ideas - please feel free to email them to me: firstname.lastname@example.org
On the topic of her recovery ..... things are moving along. We are anticipating discharge at the end of the week. They are still watching that darn feeding tube. She seems to be absorbing more and more of the nutrition and we are working towards the transition of care to home. Margaret and I will be there full-time and we will also have a Home Health nurse stop in to check on things.
