Mom seems a lot better. They put her on steroids for that horrid cackling in her chest which on Friday she was already sounding a lot better and much less coughing. Today when I went there they had her sitting up in a chair. Her legs seem to be less swollen too which is a good thing. She said she saw the doctor and he told her she would get out on Monday. So we'll see what happens.
I don't mean to be cryptic about this but something might be different when Mom goes back to the nursing home. The social worker called me on Thursday right before I went to the hospital; she said mom may or may not be going back to the same room. I guess I'll find out when she goes back. It seems very curious to me.
