Mom’s Daily Report
I am sitting in Mom’s hospital room with my family: the original five were all here together, but Chief just left to go back to work, and I am leaving for chemo in a few minutes.
Mom is great: her eyes are bright and focused, and she still very much our Rozzer. She is sitting up in a chair, she is talking, drinking, and delving into the (many, many) goodies that friends and family have left in her room. Literally, there are no flat surfaces left in the room because they are filled with gifts–mostly from her hospital friends. She is beloved! There have been a constant flow of visitors to the room, and even the CEO of the hospital has been in for a personal visit. VIP indeed!
Her chief complaint is dry mouth; her pain is managed with a push-button. She is using her arms and sitting comfortably. Goals for the day include two walks around the floor, and to eat. Ambitious! Dad and Baby Sister will be here with her for most of the day.
Thanks for your thoughts and prayers; we appreciate them so very much!
