fall hope

I know, I know. It is supposed to say, “Happy Thanksgiving!” or something fall-ish, but there is hope that my mom will recover from this last bad health scare (it was really, really bad). The hospital is responsible for a big part of what went wrong, and healthcare professionals are responsible for most of why she is recovering.

My mom is breathing without a ventilator, is responsive, talking, can accomplish small tasks, and is getting better every day.

It has been an emotional, traumatic experience for all of us. Being far away makes it so much worse because I can’t just go sit with her and hold her hand. I can’t be there to ensure that the hospital is taking good care of my mom. But they are.

So many people have been praying, and I thank everyone for taking a few minutes here and there to think about my family.

There is hope that my mom will be home in a month or so (after a time in a rehabilitation facility). Now to get back to packing up so I can move back to Texas. My heart is there (and most of my family).

There is hope. There is always hope.

  1. I’m sorry to hear that your mom has been having a hard time. Sounds like your planning to head closer to “home” soon… I hope all of the decisions that your making for your move come to you easily. My mom passed away on August 30th after a very difficult summer health wise and a short two weeks of living with a cancer diagnosis. I was six to eight hours away and spent the summer traveling back and forth to be with her, so I empathize with you. I hope that each day goes as well as it can for you.
