Lillie, Kim I haven't posted because there hasn't been any change to speak of.. This is my 4th attempt to post something to You all, I keep erasing because I find myself going into too much detail and getting long winded. Mom is still in the hospital and is now on a morphine drip. My sister has taken 'family leave' and is on her way in from out of town as I type this and will be here with Dad and I untill the end so I guess this is it. Mom's respirations are very good and from time to time she does get up with help to use the potty.. I will ask tonight about a catherter because she doesn't need to be getting up at all, she is extremly weak and fail and it's very hard to get her in and out of bed. I discovered lastnight and must correct a statement I made in an earlier post about a 'bag of nutrients' I didn't think when I posted earlier that Mom was getting any nutrients but she is and has been, it isn't very strong and the nurse said it will not keep her alive, she cannot be sustained on it but it is something. Mom is still drinking very little, only a sip of boost/ensure every now and then, she does eat ice cream and sherbert or popscicles but only alittle. So.. that's it, that's my update, I don't know what else to say. I will keep You posted, I love You all.. and appreciate Your concern and prayers. Love & Hugs, Beth
