the post with no name

because I'm too shattered to think one up. Went back to bed at 9.30 this morning. Didn't wake up until 4pm. Greeted by "I thought I'd been abandoned" when daughter and I visited mum tonight. She wasn't hooked up to the drip but was a bit confused - kept asking where different items were, as though she were at home, not in hospital. Still coughing but not as badly, I think. Still poor appetite and not drinking much (deliberately, so she doesn't have to ask the nurse to take her to the toilet). No indication yet of when she'll be going home. Dreadfully boring visit as mum not that chatty but felt we had to stay anyway. She expects me to take time off work to look after her when she's home. Goodness only knows how this is going to pan out. I am not looking forward to 2009. Bah humbug.

Thanks to all who have sent their good wishes. Much appreciated x

i'm sure it will all work out for her (and you).

Lily, your mom's confusion could stem from her not wanting to drink (dehydration). If someone can get her to drink it might help.

I'm sorry, please try not to be too shattered. If you want a distraction, check out this link: http://alzquilts.org/lt0316.html It's a small quilt that I donated and it was sold at the Int'l Quilt Festival in Houston. My quilting friend Ami Simms is working hard to raise money for Alzheimer's. Cheers to you and Happy New Year. I'm almost finished with Tractors.

Since coming home with my Diabetes, I feel kinda befuddled alot, even more than usual.
Good wishes your way...I been through it with my folks and can only hope you find the kinds of treasure I did in your days ahead.
