I'd love to be able to report that every day is a little better than the one before, but that's not quite how Mom's recovery is going. One day she is optimistic and doing well; the next she is discouraged, confused (because of medication), in pain and/or nauseated. Today was one of those discouraging days, for her. This evening, though, she seems to be feeling a little less distressed. I tried, tonight, to convince her that she needs to eat (which she hasn't been doing). When she doesn't eat, the pain medication hits her empty stomach, and she gets sick. And once she's sick, she won't eat, so it is a vicious circle.
I'd really appreciate your continued prayers. This has been an extremely trying time for her.
