Another entry from the journal I kept during the month my mother lay paralyzed in a convalescent hospital after a major stroke.
Betty (my sister) was here when I came, Jen (my daughter) had just left. So, Mom has had lots of company. She ate 75% of her breakfast, but she didn’t eat much of lunch. Jen helped her with it.
Betty brought a TV so she can watch the news tonight. Her eyes were open when I arrived. But her speech is not as good.
Betty brought the paperwork she had to sign out @ Kaiser. She and I both think Kaiser put her out too soon, but she is getting better care here than she probably would have gotten at Kaiser.
Again today she breathe so hard and then more shallow. Makes me wonder what the hard breathing is all about.
Mom moves her good foot more. That’s probably good. I sat and rubbed her feet for awhile until the nurses come to check on her.
