Busy Busy Busy

Hi All, J here. Mom is being kept very busy at the extended care, and they're pretty much wiping her out. Today she had breakfast, shower, occupational therapist, dr. appt (that included a trip to the hospital), lunch, physical therapist, something I'm forgetting, and somewhere, dinner. She was too worn out to get to blog. Tomorrow she has a very similar schedule, with occupational therapy, physical therapy, another dr. appointment, meals, on and on. She is planning on getting here to blog, but can't promise.

Her left hand seems to be numb. She spoke to her doctor about that, and the doctor said that is very common after heart surgery, and in 99% of cases, all feeling comes back within 3 months. Which is good, but not much use right this minute.

Her blog is keeping her motivated, though. Talking to you, and hearing from you, is one thing that she can look forward to EVERY DAY. Of course, she can also look forward to talking to family, but that's different. As you all know, family is family, and a blog is truly one's own. So she will be here when she can. She loves you, and the blog, too much to stay away.

Thanks for updating. Naturally her readers and friends are concerned but her priority has to be healing her body and everybody understands. Sounds like she is doing well with what she needs to do

Thanks for the update, J! Yes, having a blog affords some great opportunities our grandfolks could not have dreamed of.

I'm so glad you're improving! J is doing a good job, keeping us posted as to your recovery. Hope you'll be able to blog again, soon.

I'm so glad that we, the blogging community, can bring you some motivation, Granny. It's a funny thing about blogging...and I can't explain it to those that don't do it...but it really is an extended family and very satisfying. Please continue to gain strength.
