Sorry for the long absence. October has been a busy month with 24 days spent with Mom in the hospital. She has bounced back to almost where she was, which is wonderful! I guess one of the side effects of massive strokes can be seizures, and scarily, that's what happened to Mama on September 30th. After 24 days of adjusting the anti-seizure medicine down, she finally was awake consistently. Our doctor has a sense of humor a mile long (at times) and he swooped into the room a couple of days after she was awake and herself. She was giving me, the nurses, and even absent people a little bit of her "piece of her mind" she likes to distribute... He came in and silently mouthed the question: "More Dylantin?" haha.. I shook my head with only half a smile, and he said softly, "Too soon." haha..
Now this morning? a little sleep would have been lovely. But not the drug induced kind, you know.
I was up at the crack of dawn with all kinds of good ideas. I made a little hoot owl egg for my son on his way to work. He often grabs a little bite of protein breakfast here before his long days. Right now he is again exercising and losing weight with Paleo and a more common sense calorie reduction diet combined. Through the month when I was going into the hospital every day, I was also rather "good." But now... it's every bite for itself as I try to get back into the swing of things.
Whimsy and Hugs!
