Mary came for a visit to help with mom and to give Bob and I a break.
It was wonderful to see her again!
Mom has had home healthcare through the month of February as well as this month hopefully. She seems stronger some days but then will have trouble walking. She is trying and we are doing what we can to make sure she has plenty of fresh fruits and veggies and is getting naps and lots of hydration. It can be frustrating. Her chronic UTI's are an issue. We went to her urologist this week and he didn't offer much. She has just been changed to a new antibiotic (AGAIN!).

We are enjoying our therapists and nurse visits and a wonderful "shower lady" that has come twice a week to give showers, especially when Mary was here but she has continued this week, giving me some respite.

One of our PT's (Physical therapist) is Deb Button. She started out with mom and then had to pass the baton to Teresa. Deb has volunteered to go to Haiti. She is on her second week there and has a blog that I want to share with you. I am impressed to learn about the organization that she is with called, "Healing hands for Haiti".
They are a team of docs, nurses, and therapists who volunteer their own time and talents for free. She told us that 100 percent of donations go to the actual cause. That is rare. She said they have been in Haiti for more than 10 years and have recently been more visible because of the earthquake and tremendous need. Please look at her blog. We have loved her working with us and so appreciate her love and compassion in voluntering her time to help. Please pray for her and her fellow workers.
