    Thanks for asking, Renee.

    I heard from my sister, who spoke to my dad. Her kidney function is looking better and she is overall doing well. They were going to try to stand her up later in the day and possibly move her out of the ICU tomorrow. I'm hoping to get away to see her tomorrow sometime in the midst of it all.

    Overall, we seem to be moving in the right direction. :)

    Oh, that is good news Eddie. Sending my best to your Mom for continued improvement. That was a little scary, wasn't it. Lots of good wishes coming your way.

    That does sound like good news :) And the sooner she can start moving around the less pain she's going to have to manage later, so it's doubly good they're working on getting her on her feet so fast.

    Just left the hospital. Mom looks pretty good. She's miserable, of course. We had a good chat for a couple of hours. Kidney output seems decent.

    They will keep her in the ICU through the weekend. So hopefully they will move her Monday.

    Sorry she's feeling miserable, but that is kind of normal in a hospital :( Good that they're planning on moving her out of ICU in a couple of days though!

    I just came back from the hospital. Finally, after 2 weeks and 2 days, my mom was moved from the ICU to a regular hospital room. She is eating (still all liquid diet) and completely herself. No loopiness or anything. She even had my wife brush out her hair a little.

    Still a long way to go as she cannot stand on her own yet, but they are doing PT and she will get there. We brought her a prayer shawl from our church and she absolutely loved it.

    Thanks for your prayers and vibes everyone! It certainly works!
