The quieter you become the more you can hear ~ Ram Dass

I was feeling pretty good yesterday so I went to see Mom.  She was doing well physically.  She's off the oxygen during the day and the steroids.  Her legs looked great.  They were testing her sugar 4 times a day but the nurse said she was going to talk to the doctor about reducing the number of times a day, since its been so good.

Her mind was another story.  She seemed a little confused the first day she was back from the hospital.  Yesterday, she kept trying to tell me things but would just use pronouns and then would stop talking like she forgot what she was going to say.  I've seen her like this before but usually I can figure out what she's trying to tell me but I couldn't. She couldn't seem to concentrate.  It does sound like my cousin, aunt and uncle visited her some time.  Mom didn't remember when or what they talked about.  Good thing she was back from the hospital because I never thought to call them and tell them.

I just got back from seeing her.  She seemed a little less confused today. She talked and talked but really about nothing much.  But still, when I tried to talk to her about the Oscars and stuff she didn't really seem to understand what I was talking about or else couldn't concentrate enough to understand.   She did tell me she got a blood test.  We'll see how she is by Wednesday.

I know what you mean about signs of spring. I saw the tippy tops of my tulips pointing out of the ground yesterday -- they may as well have been grinning for the joy they brought me.

I hope your mother continues to improve.

Sending you and your mom Zen hugs! She may improve when the extra drugs leave her system!
