Mom was a little tired today--understandable I guess after her hectic day yesterday. When the Occupational Therapist and Speech Therapist were trying to get her to brush her teeth and feed herself applesauce, Mom didn't seem to be all that interested. Of course it didn't help that they woke her up out of a sound sleep to work with her! Mom did a little bit, but seemed to lack either strength or motivation--maybe both. I try to remind myself that in a patient with an injury like the one Mom's got, "up" days are bound to be interspersed with "down" days.
They changed Mom's tracheostomy tube today, because the one she did have had metal in it and they could not do an MRI if it was in her. I heard that Interventional Radiology wants to do an MRI, I am not sure what for but I imagine it is a routine follow-up exam. We will keep you posted.
Ali and I are so grateful for the cards, words of encouragement, and the gifts of money you have given. We are especially thankful for your prayers! We can see God's hand at work and it is really special seeing Him do the things that we are incapable of doing. Thank you for being there.
