Mom has had another stroke. Happened on Friday while she was having lunch. Caregiver said her eyes rolled back in her head and she started foaming at the mouth. She called brother; he called ambulance. She also has a "rip-roaring" (doc's words) UTI. She slept all Saturday and Sunday, but today she is much better. Had a swallowing test, which showed she is able to swallow. Will start with pureed food, but she hasn't eaten since Friday. She is getting an MRI now to see if they can tell anything by that. She walked a few steps with the therapist today, but not many. Here we go again. Rehab next. She smiled big at me and held my hand and started babbling today when I walked in. Stewart was already there, so we knew she was better.

Yes, thanks for the update.
Now while she is being well taken care of by someone something for you. Get out of town or just take time to do what you want. A breather. Now...go forth and breath... :)
She sounds fine for now. Doesn't sound like she went backwards any in progress. With the UTI under control soon she will be able to do better.

Sometimes, reading your blog is tough; probably because I know what you're facing every day.

All I can offer is prayers.

God Bless.
