A wonderful night for her and a nice slow start for us

24 Sep

My mom had a good night, ate some breakfast and is now sitting up in a recliner visiting with a friend. The upswing has been dramatic and it looks like we’re headed in the right direction. She still has times of mental fuzziness but is “there” most of the time. She tires easily, so if you’d like to visit, please keep it to ten minutes or less. My wife and youngest daughter arrived last night from Costa Rica. Today Cathi will be coming in to the hospital and Anna and I will take a day of rest. So the next posting will be later this evening when Cathi gets back and I can write the next update.
Many thanks for your ongoing prayer and words of encouragement. Although I haven’t responded I have read every one and have shared them with my mom. At some point she will go back and read this series and understand how many have prayed for her and cared for her.

    Thankful to hear that she had a good night, and is able to be up in a chair. Thankful, also, that you are going to have some relief today. Our loving prayers continue.

    So glad to hear your Mom is well on the road to recovery. You have been a faithful and constant son Brian. I trust you will enjoy your well deserved rest. You are now leaving your Mom in the safe hands of Cathi.
    I have followed you updates with interest. Please give my love with a gentle hug to Marian, from her Scottish friend who lives in Portugal.
    Lots of love, Jill

    Hallelujah! To God be the Glory!
    Give your mom a hug from Carol & Max… (She’ll know who Max is.) I will try to stop by for a 10-minute visit one day this week if she is still up for it.

    Thanks for the great news. It brought tears to my eyes!

    Such a blessing. And glad that Cathi and Anna could join you, to be together.

    So wonderful to hear! I’ve been praying for your mom – she is such a special lady and I’ve missed seeing her (we’ve done bible study together for the past few years). I’m so thankful she is feeling better and is on the upswing! Please give her a big hug for me. Praise the Lord!
