As some of you know, while on a trip to visit my brother and his family, my mother wound up being hospitalized with pneumonia secondary to a strain of the swine flu. After to weeks of being primarily unconscious, my mother was awake, aware and cognizant yesterday, and able to speak, albeit with difficulty. The doctors were astounded. They weren't expecting this development until Tuesday at the earlies. She continues to astound the doctors today. The report from my father is that she is at 85% of her normal capacity, and they are considering starting her on physical therapy this afternoon. (After being bed ridden for two weeks her muscles have atrophied a bit and she is retaining quite a bit fluid.) There's still some question whether or not she will have two spend several more weeks in a skilled nursing facility for more intense physical therapy. She has quite a ways to go, but she cleared the main hurdle. Thank you all again for the healing energy you sent her way.

I am more than relieved, and am taking a moment to do some celebratory booty shaking before beginning the daunting task of sorting through my parents bills so that I can call the utility companies tomorrow and ask for an extension. I actually got to speak to my mom on the phone for a few minutes for the first time in weeks. Her first question was "Who won American Idol?" Too funny. Nonetheless, it was so great to hear her voice and hear her in such good spirit.
