Mom did much better today. She was awake & did her Physical Therapy. By the time we got there in the afternoon, though, she was tired & her pain "ball" (a ball full of anesthetic to numb the leg) had run out. She had taken some pain meds, but was hurting more than she has before.
If all goes well, she will go home tomorrow afternoon. Dad will let me know if he wants me to go with him to the house to help with anything tomorrow. Friday, Ruth (Phil's mom) may go stay overnight to help out. Now, how many of you have a mother-in-law who offers to help your mother? This is the norm for our families so we forget that not all families interact so much with their kids' inlaws (or, as Dad would say, outlaws).
We will go for the next 2 Wednesdays to stay overnight as Dad has appointments on Thursdays. By then Mom may be ASKING for Dad to go play golf! Ha, ha!
For those of you who have been praying for us, would you please pray for the Kiser family? My niece's grandmother-in-law is in her last hours, if she has not already gone to be with the Lord. This will be a difficult time for her husband of over 60 years, as well as the rest of the family. Chris, Becky's husband, has not lost anyone in the family like this, so please pray for him and his twin brother. Thank you.
