Feeling the love - Part 2
Things are improving a bit. Thursday night and Friday were rough for Mom. She was wide awake and agitated badly after we got home from the hospital. So agitated in fact, she was awake until 6am. And then she got sick. Big Time. After being up all night with her, the clean up task was not fun. But once she "got rid of that" she went to sleep. But less than 3 hours later she was up again.
Last night she slept a bit more but is still restless. We can tell she is having pain but seems a bit more like herself today. She's eating again which is good news. I'm hoping she lets me sleep tonight because I'm starting to feel like a zombie.
But a very loved zombie! And Mom too - she has lots of friends who love her and the phone calls and drop offs have been amazing. Yesterday several of her old friends arrived at the door with donuts, cookies, flowers, fresh rolls, chocolates. A sweet blog friend, Kim sent me some beautiful handmade hearts all the way from California. They arrived Friday morning, just when I was about at my lowest. Perfect timing for sure. Today one of my friends made us a large lasagna. It's party size :) So thoughtful!!
And I can't say enough good things about the VON and our home care nursing support. They were here last night and again today. They've been angels and answered all my crazy questions and helped ease my mind.
So blog friends, we are doing OK. Thank you for your concern :)
