Well, it has been a week of worry and long days and short nights, but Mom is better. She broke her leg a week ago Friday. Brought her home that night and everything seemed okay—
Then she reacted to the pain medication and we almost lost her.
She lost her way for a while, but is slowly finding her path back home. It was a heartbreaking day on Sunday, when she didn’t know who or where she was or who I was – particularly heartbreaking to see her so confused.
I believe sometime on Tuesday, she chose to stay with us and each day she has gained a tiny bit of herself back.
Still very weak and of course with a big heavy cast on her left leg, she can’t move without help. We are looking for someone to stay with her during the day while I am at work. And due to being at the end of the earth here in the Ozarks, it is hard to find folks willing to drive all this way.
But I remind myself, it has only been a week – so each day more and more will fall into place until finally we are back to a regular old normal day to day routine.
We are so grateful for your kind thoughts and prayers – each one has been a bright candle in our dark days. Please continue to shine your light –
