Thank you to all who have wished my mother well. She seems better. The infection seems to be under control. Her sodium levels are still too low. I was hoping she'd go back to the nursing home today, and she might, but I doubt it. I stayed Wednesday and last night. My brother stayed Thursday night. We're both pretty tired, but we'll be ok. So many have much worse that they've been through. My prayers are still going out to those of you with sick ones and who have recently lost loved ones.
I'm going to try to sew a little today. My brother relieved me this morning and I came home (about a 45 min. drive) and took a shower, so I feel somewhat refreshed.
My daughter's daughters swim on a swim team. Apparently the new thing for swimmers is to wear towel shorts. They cost $25+ through the catalogue, so I'm going to make some for my DGDs.
I still have their red, white, and blue outfits to do. I had Emory's almost finished before this all happened with my mom.
My FIL is doing pretty well from his knee replacement. He now has carpal tunnel in both hands and is having difficulty with that!

TAG: She's in the ambulance on her way back to the nursing home as I type this. Gotta go get her some dinner since it's already past dinner time at the nursing home.

I know what it is like to take care of older parents. My husband and I did it for several years. I hope your family gets well and take care of yourself.

Bless you for being such a good person. A lot of elderly people don't have the support of their children, or anyone else.

I love how you take care of your mum, it is very special.

You and your family are in my prayers. Things may seem very hard right now but you have to think positive thoughts that she will get better.
