So far, so good

Mom is still in the Stroke Center, in a very nice large room all by herself.  Her primary complaint is that she is always cold.  This is nothing new.  When they weighed her she was 103 pounds, and I know when I was that low weight I tended to be cold as well.  Her room is kept at 80 and she can request a hot (warmed up) blanket whenever she wants.  Now that she has figured out what foods she likes from the cafeteria she is eating again.

No obvious damage from the strokes.  Yes, plural.  She was told she has had several mini strokes.  As it is the weekend not a lot is going on and we don’t know if she will come home or go to rehab, and when it will all happen.  At this point she is where she needs to be.

Thank you for the prayers and good thoughts.

  4. 103 pounds! That bag of lemons she carried all the way over to us last week weighed at least 20 pounds. Yes, she is a strong woman! It is good to hear they have figured out what happened and that they have her under observation. We are sending positive vibes her way!

  8. I'm so glad your Mom is doing well and able to eat. A couple of years ago I spent close to a week in the hospital and went down to 104# (I'm 5'5" tall). I lost the weight because I couldn't eat a bite of the hospital food. I was able to eat when I got out of the hospital, but for some reason the hospital food made me sick to even look at.
