When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick. ~Matthew 14:14
We just get my mother moved into a beautiful assisted living facility last Friday, when Sunday finds her back in the emergency room because she is struggling to breathe. And that's with oxygen!
The news comes as we are driving back to Kennesaw, but that turns out to be a good thing. The medical POA is in our safe at home, and the hospital definitely needs a copy of that in order to proceed with any treatments. It is sent to them pronto.
I don't need to tell you, as you've probably already guessed, we do not hold out much hope for Mom's full recovery. But once again, at least for now, she's beaten the odds. They will be placing her in a regular hospital room, after a night in ICU, as I write this on Monday.
Our concerns for her health are many. She is sleeping way too much, not eating enough, doesn't have the strength to do meaningful PT, and still has a bed sore that, although its being treated, could lead to sepsis. Since things are touch and go at the moment, I will not be blogging again this week unless we find out something definitive.
Prayers are still welcomed as our entire family and her circle of friends need all the comfort and peace we can get. And of course, prayers are needed for Mom, too. She is in dire need of healing, either here on earth, or at home in heaven when she feels Jesus' healing touch and knows she is well for all eternity.
Thank you, dear friends, and I do hope my next news is good news.
