Happy Easter everyone. On my way to visit Mom. Last visit I was sure she would not make it another week. Yesterday the nurse called to let me know she couldn't swallow and doctor prescribed an antibiotic for a lymph node infection in her neck. She told me Mom still has her periods of being awake and active and still trying to undo the safety belt and get out of the chair or bed. They call her the Energizer Bunny and never saw anyone like her. Half the time she is out of it, but then they can't understand how someone so completely skeletal and frail can still be alive and active and fighting other times. One minute she is sweet and complimentary to the nurses. But yesterday, when the nurse gave her a shot of antibiotic - she flipped her off! Never ever have I known Mom to do that - I didn't know she knew how!
