Mom's strength continues to build!
I don't know for sure, but I think her immobility is making her very antsy and frustrated. The thought of lying in bed watching television is no picnic for her. I've also noticed that on days when she sets goals for herself, or knows she has a priority that day (such as hosting her dear friend Peggy who drove many miles to visit her this week!), she does better.
She actually went into the office for a bit yesterday, and couldn't remember basic URLs and things like that. Although I'm not surprised (reading wasn't really an option mere weeks ago), I think she was. It'll all come back to her.
We aren't traveling to be with her this weekend, so I hope she doesn't get too lonely. :)
Her surgeon's appointment is on Monday. I think she's progressed well beyond that nasty infection. I'm not so sure they'll remove her bile drainage bag yet. It's still draining. Frankly, I know it's not FUN, but I am nervous about another doctor removing it. It's not just stuck into her side! It goes in through her liver and biliary system, and was placed during the surgery.
Trust. Trust. I have to remember to trust.
