Blogging from ICU
Mom is doing better today than anyone expected, which just goes to prove that she's strong and determined, even when knocked out cold. They woke her up for just a few minutes today, and she was breathing on her own for a bit, so they feel confident that they will be able to remove the breathing tube in a day or two. I've been in here, talking to her and rubbing lotion on her wintery feet, and I think she can hear me. She opens her eyes once in awhile. I know she's not completely awake, as they said they don't like to do that with the tube down her throat, and I'm sure she won't remember that I was here, but I also think she knows I'm here now, and that's a good thing. She and I are both doing SO much better today. Thank you all for your good wishes and prayers. They have helped a lot.
