    Good to hear this update, Theresa. At least those docs sound as if they are finally doing something for your mother. You know you have our prayers and well wishes for your mother to recover, and return home in better shape than before her hospital admission. I'm glad you are home and lying down for now. You should look out for yourself. Let the ICU staff handle Mom for now while you regroup and re-energize before you go back to the hospital to be by her side. How's your dad holding up? Thank you ever so much for keeping us posted. All you have on your shoulders, you still take the time to update us, and spread your love our way. ((((((((((((hugs to you and Mom))))))))))) :kiss

    All that I can say is that my Dad is either very tough or in denial about what's happening. Maybe it's a guy thing.Warrior Woman.

    I'm glad to hear that he is being strong, even if he would rather fall apart and bawl like a baby right now. That would be understandable if he did. I'm thankful to hear that you two have each other right now with your mother in the hospital....at least you aren't alone. That would be awful to be alone with all you are dealing with. Love ya, honey! :kiss

    Sending Theresa and her mother some Philly strength and healing prayers.

    Read your other post tonight....you ARE a survivor. I went thru similar period earlier this year. Take one hour at a time. Hope you can sleep well to night and awake refreshed.

    Theresa, sorry that your Mom took a turn, but like the others have said, take this opportunity to let the ICU nurses do their work while you get some rest. Be sure to look after yourself, or your Dad will be looking after both of you!
