Updates

Lots going on here lately that keeps me busy. Having lots of changes done to the house, new couch! Took all the wall paper down going to paint soon!
Going to get a new chandler for the dinning room! My old was is just that old and icky gross looking!
For those who don't read my private J ( not that I write there a lot anyway!) My mom (Jane) is still in the Hospital ... She is now in her third hospital ( moved yesterday) and has been there one day and is already showing signs of improvement! My mom is finally coming out of it and talking, she told my Aunt and Uncle( who have been acting as POA (power of attorney) for her ) that the second hospital ( the one she just left yesterday was treating her horrible they were mean and cruel to her and were not helping her at all! She finally is talking and remembers everything! She asked about me and my sister something she has not done since she went into the first hospital back in Aug!
She was moved to the new hospital (in Philly) to have a treatment called Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT)... it is a treatment for depression that uses electricity to trigger a seizure and is suppose to get her out of this deep depression that she has been in) ... I know times have changed BUT this is what her mother (my grandmother)died of in 1973. They do things differently now, BUT it still has us nervous Please Pray that it works for her and everything goes well! We may be going down to see her this weekend!

Bethany gets her cast off tomorrow! Can you believe it, it's been 4 weeks already!

I've heard a lot of great things about that procedure! I'll be keeping your mom in my prayers.

It sounds like things might be looking up for your mom. I'm saying a prayer for her.

I'm sorry your poor Mum has to undergo ECT. I know it is still quite common America and Canada but here it has more or less been abandoned as anything close to routine. Thank goodness as I was a candidate for it had it still been the norm.
I hope all goes well for her.

3rd time is the charm :o)

Glad that your mom is doing better, and that the cast is almost history.
