Thank you for stopping by my blog. I really do appreciate it ;-)
I believe my Mom thinks she is a cat with nine lives. As many of you know, my dear Mom recently turned 90 and has been facing a series of health issues, mainly congestive heart failure and worsening dementia. This past Monday, "something" happened. They are not sure if it was a stroke, a TIA, or just her heart not sending enough blood and oxygen to the brain. She had some signs of a stroke, mainly drooping on one side of the face and her lower lip. It was heartbreaking. I seriously did not think she would survive. Well, in typical Mom fashion, by Tuesday she was doing much better and joking with the hospice aide, telling her that she was a pain in the a**. Gotta love my Mom!
I am so thankful my Mom is in hospice care. She is at home with 24/7 care and hopefully will be able to remain there! She is no longer being transported to the hospital for health issues. They are managed by hospice. Her nurse Sue is wonderful. The social worker is just a hoot. I know she's a great person ~ she owns a pug! The aides have been wonderful, too. Their goal is to make mom comfortable and manage her pain, and for that, I am thankful.
Please say a prayer for my Mom. She believes in the power of prayer and I know she'll appreciate it.
Pug hugs :)
