Our Move to Inpatient Therapy

Mom continued to improve at the hospital, and yesterday afternoon we moved her into the Saint Joseph of The Pines Therapy Village.  All went smoothly with the move, and we couldn't be happier with the facility and the care that she'll receive here.

This morning brought a few not-so-welcome changes too.  Since I arrived, she's been telling me about "the house" that she stayed in last night.  When I told her that she looked pretty, she replied that  the kids found her clothes in the street for her.  And she's also been having a conversation with her roommate about visiting with her at her home last night.  She even remembers her sitting on the couch.  These are just a few examples, and it's new for us to see her disease manifesting in this way. 

The good news is that while Mom seems to be more confused today, her spirits are great.  She has a huge smile on her face, and she couldn't be friendlier to everyone she meets.  She received her medication about 30 minutes ago, and I'm hoping that she'll see things more clearly again soon.  Her doctor also mentioned that this new symptom could  be related to yesterday's transition.

While I thought that today would be my day to break away for a bit, instead I'll be staying with her at least until her new routine is established and she's more comfortable with it. 

Thank you again for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers!
