Monday Update

Hi Everyone, J here again. Mom seems to be doing better every day, and is now ready to be moved back to the Extended Care Facility. I don't think she suffered a setback so much as she was moved before she was really ready the first time. And of course, the anti-anxiety drugs were no help at all. But over this last week, it sounds like she's made a lot of progress emotionally and some progress physically, and is getting her head wrapped around what needs to be done. And one thing about Maya's Granny is that once she has the challenge figured out, she tackles it head on.

One nice thing about the Extended Care Facility is that it has at least one computer that patients can access, and I'm pretty sure they wouldn't do that without internet access, so it's possible she'll be back to blogging herself soon! I know she'll at least be reading if she gets the chance. Perhaps I'm being premature in hoping she'll be back online soon, but I'll let you know if she doesn't have access.

So all signs are looking up, I'm happy to say. Mom and I have had much better conversations this week, which has been a relief with her off of the heavy meds. The 'mom moving fund' has been GREAT, and has raised $1,780 thus far. With our expense being $3,800, that leaves just over $2,000 for Richard and I, which is SO much more manageable than the numbers we were looking at just a few weeks ago. Again, thank you to everyone who has been able to chip in. And of course, thank you to everyone for your kind words and continued support. I'm hoping this will be the last you'll hear from me over here, and mom's voice will return where it belongs. If you need to find me, as always, I'm over here. :)
