Newest Update

Journal entry by Matthew Eckenrode

Sorry folks. Lots going on since mom got home. 

I'm simply not going to be able to do an update every two weeks as I had been attempting. Too much going on. 

That said here is an update on my mom. She is home and we had some hiccups with that transition. But that was to be expected. She went for a follow up appointment on the 10th and got exposed to Covid in the hospital. No symptoms, so reasonably sure after 12 days she's in the clear. 

However, due to her exposure, her PT and OT have been canceled until after Christmas. My concern is with all of this Covid going on, that she will miss critical time w her group of therapists. So we are going to learn what needs to be done and adapt and improvise. 

She is getting stronger. Right bicep is starting to come back. 

Right now though the biggest thing is she is missing Grandma and Aunt Deb quite a bit. That has really had her down the last few days. 

Hopefully Christmas will lift her spirits a bit. 

That's all for now. See you in 2021.
