First a very heartfelt thank you to those that have sent letters and flowers. She really does love to hear about what's going on in your life as well as some of the memories you share with her. Mom wanted me to please tell everyone thank you!
She is still pretty weak but is making some great "mini goals" to slowly get her strength back. She sits in her chair every 2 hours (this helps with keeping her lungs clear) and her goal is to walk with her walker from her room to the bathroom by next week. It seems she may have bit her lip and tongue and because of poor circulation and being on a blood thinner her tongue and lip don't heal quickly so blood has pooled around her mouth causing her lip and chin to go purple! It was pretty frightening until we learned what was happening from her doctors. Dad has taken her off the blood thinner and we are starting to see a difference. She is able to eat more but still needs to be careful she doesn't overdo it (this causes her discomfort and she has thrown up because of being too full). We are grateful she is able to eat whatever she wants (can't imagine not being able to enjoy food!). We are very happy she's home and resting. We missed her terribly while she was in the hospital and she is determined "not to go back!" :)
