My Mother

OK OK I know I said that I was actually going to do this last post but I had to talk about LOL before I talked about something serious again. Mom has been progressing so much in the just the last two weeks I do believe we are starting to see the end of the tunnel. She has lost Over 200lbs yes I typed that correctly! Also she has now moved on to a different type of trech. She is now about to talk they put a special type of valve on it that has a mesh across it that allows her to speak. Very well actually she is able to talk on the phone when called and the speech therapist has said she will not need any speech lessons. The Dr said that she should actually be able to cap it off completely very soon. After she get used to that they will be able to sew up the tracheotomy. This is AWESOME NEWS!!!! She is standing more and more each day and is able to stand up completely on her own. She is soooo wanting to take that first step and can't wait. She is totally home sick and misses everyone so much.

The rehabilitation hospital is
