Sorry I haven't updated in a few days. Seems each day is busier than the last. Dwight is run ragged trying to get everything done.

Today I had a doctor's appointment and was thoroughly disgusted when I left there. They did take my blood pressure but didn't listen to my heart, take my pulse or even look at the leg that was infected. It is still open and I'm a bit concerned. Guess I will have to wait for the nurse to take a look on Thurs. Then Dwight had to run to get bandages that the nurse had ordered and pay a couple of bills. Jordan had stayed overnight last night and was up with a stomach ache so he didn't go to school. What a day!

Mom is doing okay but they still haven't given her the test that they had planned for Monday. Not sure what is going on there and since my leg is still open I still can't go to the hospital, which annoys me. I would like to know exactly what is going on. Seems they're just keeping her there and giving her pain meds...not doing anything to find out what is causing the pain. Grrr! The doctor told her today, "We aren't going to be able to cure you." Now what is that supposed to mean? I told Mom to put them on the spot and get some answers. They seem to be hedging. If they don't tell her something tomorrow, I will be phoning and delving into the matter further. At least they are letting her get out of bed now and she walked to the end of the hall with the nurse yesterday. She didn't say anything about walking today.

I haven't had much of an update on Josh. Last I heard he was eating more and itching to get out of the hospital. He actually fed himself at the end of last week and seems to be coming along. He has a speech therapist and apparently is talking a bit more. He is now in the brain rehabilitation part of the hospital.

That's about it. Not a lot of news. I'm holding my own and doing a bit more each day.
