Mom is improving

Today is the 10th day after my mom had her stroke. She was in Mercy San Juan hospital which was a stroke center and happened to be about 15 min. from Brent and Noelle's apartment. The doctors and nurses saw enough progress in my mom that they transported her to Mercy general hospital to start her physical therapy. My mom is eating mashed potatoes and other pureed soft foods. Both her eyes are staying open a little longer. And she is already signaling for my dad to go go back to the apartment. So typical. It was hard to leave Sacramento on Saturday but the physical therapist was already saying it should be about a week until she can come home to Boise. That seems soon but they know better than I do. It will be nice and reasuring when my mom comes back to Boise. She will have more support here and my dad will have more help. Brent and Noelle have been a huge support for my dad and have been getting him out of the hospital so he doesn't go crazy. Thanks for all the support and prayers from family and friends during this last week.
