    The Little Engine that Could

    After a couple of very VERY bad days, mom seems to have reached a turning point. The NG tube is out, her lab work/xray is better than it was, she's breathing easier, her eyes are brighter, and she's more chipper. Still not out of the woods yet by any means but it's looking better. She's finally allowed to have small sips of water. They hope to move her on to broth/clear liquids in a couple of days. (It officially makes one week since she's eaten; she said she's been dreaming of food...chicken and dumplings, cheese and crackers, mac 'n cheese, applebutter, apple pie.)

    The pain medicine that they give her (she's down to once or twice a day) causes her to hallucinate. It was alarming at first (especially since she was seeing people who had passed) but now that we know to expect it, it's somewhat amusing. While "under the influence" she's scrapbooked, stirred cake batter, dug in the filing cabinet, searched through a purse, and yelled at me to "Get K'Cee off the couch!!" lol (Technically, the critters aren't allowed on the living room furniture but nevermind the fact that that's where they spend a majority of their time. lol)

    Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. They really, really mean the world to us.

    THANK YOU, GOD - keep getting Mom better! THANK YOU.

    Zippy - I am sure she'll get a kick out of how 'domestic' and 'busy' she was during this time.

    This is very hopeful news...maybe in a couple of days, she'll be over the worst. Will it be a while before she is out of isolation?

    HUGS to you all.

    In between pain meds, she's quite "with it" and, yes, we've all gotten a bit of a chuckle.

    I'm sure they won't remove her from this unit until she's ready to go home and that will probably be this weekend at the earliest. I'm guessing they will keep her into next week.



    In the previous post, I forgot to mention that tomorrow is their 34th anniversary!

    Prayers on the way.

    Two Steps Forward...

    She was able to walk up and down the hallway 3x, today. They gave her a popsicle (and something else -forgot what) and she was able to keep that down. Still on oxygen but breathing better. HOWEVER, her lungs are collapsing and she's now trying to ward off pneumonia.

    Will this ever end? Times like this, it seems like it won't. One of the scariest things is, how will we now determine what is normal chemo effects and what is the start of an infection? (The cancer center is sending home some test kits that we can drop off at our local hospital in case we are in doubt.)

    I'm ready for the "no set back" days. I'm ready for her to be home. I may be twenty-eight years old but I still want/need my mommy.

    That's wonderful news that she was able to walk today. I'm happy about that but saddened to hear about her lungs. I'm sorry but I had to chuckle a bit about her hallucinating. It brings to mind many years ago when a "then friend" had her husband in the hospital and they had him drugs for whatever reason and when we went to visit him and the nurses had to restrain him. Unbeknownst to them, he was allergic and he kept trying to get out of bed to "clean up the house" and "take the dog for a walk" and "set up the checker board for a game." He was seeing all kinds of people who had already passed. When we were there we both chuckled, even though it wasn't really funny.

    34th anniversary???? Happy anniversary to Zippy's Parents.

    More {{{hugs}}} and prayers coming your way.

    As a footnote, you are never to old to want/need your Mommy. My Mom and I are very close and can't even imagine what state I would be in if she were in your Mom's shoes. Don't ever be ashamed to let the little child inside of you come out and want to be held.

    Hang tough and slow down a little.

    I know what it feels like to go 150 miles an hour, when you are standing still.
