I must apologize for being MIA again these past few weeks. My dear Mother slipped off the side of her bed last week, and broke her leg! She came through the surgery better than the doctors expected, but we have had a few hiccups since then. Wednesday night, after they moved her from ICU she had a GI bleed which caused her haemoglobin levels to drop dangerously low.
Once the doctors resolved this problem, we thought things were picking up, but then on Tuesday morning her heart started to give a few problems. The doctors are now trying to address this problem, but Mom's sensitivity to medication is complicating things.
She has been able to get up and sit in a chair for an hour, but her rehab is being delayed until these other matters are resolved.
Needless to say, I have been spending most of my time at the hospital, and will be for the next few weeks? The doctors haven't given me any idea yet, as to how long she will have to stay in the hospital.
I'll be back, I just don't know when.
Bye for now.

You are doing exactly what you need to be doing right now. I'm so sorry that your Mom has had such a tough time. Hopefully all will settle down soon. Be good to yourself too as I'm sure you have a lot of stress going on too.

Dorothy,

You came to my mind this morning. I thought I would drop by and say hi. So sorry to hear about your mother! Thoughts and prayers coming your way. I hope she recovers soon, and no more complications.

Remember the Cosmo threads you had sent me a long time ago? I never did use them (they are just too precious), but I have decided to try them on a smocked bishop for my little one.

Take care!
