Dearest Friends, Thanks for the encouraging words. I haven't been home since 11/19, so I'm just know reading them. Mom was in and out of it all day on her birthday but we all stayed gathered around her bed most of the day and made the most of it that we could. The phone rang continously all day with birthday wishes from friends. We opened gifts for her every time she would open her eyes. She received flowers and was even able to sit up long enough to blow out candles on her cake. She couldn't eat any but we wanted her to have one anyway. We held our breath waiting for Thanksgiving and once again we shared a beautiful day gathered around Mom's bed. The Lord has blessed our family many times over and He continues with each day He allows Mom to stay on with us. We didn't think we'd get to see Mom turn 61. We had only hoped we could spend Thanksgiving with her. Now my hopes are turning to Christmas. Mom is awfully weak though. She has had some really low times in the last week and half. Right now all vital signs have stabilized and she's stayed awake all day the last two days. I'm grateful for this. It's allowed me to come home for a night and feel safe in doing so. It's an hour drive from my house to hers and I will be returning tomorrow. I'll try to update later in the week. Love to you all and thanks for being here for me. Donna (-:
