Janie and I went to see mother at 5:30 and she was a completely different person. She was happy and laughing. She told us several stories about what happened to her during the day and had us both laughing. She is glad that she came to the hospital saying she feels so much better. The nurses said they were amazed by her progress. They were impressed that she was so considerate and helpful with others. She has been going to the group sessions and has enjoyed them. When other patients would need some help mother would get up and go to their aide. She told us of a man sitting next to her at lunch who kept trying to get the food off of her plate and he would be trying to pick up food that was not there from off the table. She felt sorry for him. Mother says she sees the need to get out of her room and mingle with others and plans to do just that when she gets back to the nursing home. She says she is going to eat with the others and go each day to the common area to do her sewing. We were so excited to see her laugh. She did not have her bottom teeth in so I did not take a picture of her this time. I want to thank everyone for their prayers for her.
