Mother is doing well,

Monday, March 27, 2006
though she isn't really feeling well. She is in a lot of pain and it's going to be a long recovery - but everything is healing nicely and the doctor is still very pleased with the results. She is getting up more and walking today - granted not very far, but she's still walking. I think she is going to get to eat solid foods today, too and they have removed her IV. She is still taking some pain meds, but not much. She takes as much as she can stand of the pain before using anything for it - just like my brother! Not me, I don't handle pain nearly as well!

Anyway, I think she is going to be coming home some time in the next few days - she isn't rushing it, though! I spent Saturday with her and then went back for the afternoon with my sister on Sunday. She looked so much better on Sunday. A lot more color and definitely more alert!
