Thank you everyone for your well wishes.

Time has not been on my side lately, which explains my lengthy absence. I'm terribly sorry for that. I promise, I will be getting the TR started. I have to get all of my photos together and uploaded, and then we'll get started.

I wanted to give everyone an update on my Grandma. She is currently in a very intense rehab facility. After all of the tests that were done they found out that she actually had 12 mini strokes. She is fortunate, because she doesn't seem to have a lot of damage from it. However, she cannot see very well at this point, and her hearing has decreased even more.

She is still in the rehab facility and things are moving along slowly. They were talking about a tentative release date of 8/10, but that's dependent on what the therapists say. I don't see it happening and I think she has a ways to go for sure. I'll keep you posted along the way. My poor mom is running herself ragged seeing her every day at the rehab, and I'm getting beaten up at work. By the time I get home every night, I only have enough energy to eat my dinner and go to bed. Seriously. It will get better soon.

Anyway, hang in there with me and I will be starting the TR soon. Thanks for your support.

I already commented on your other TR, but don't worry about us. We will be here waiting patiently, you need to focus your attention on your grandmother and your work so you can be all together again. Things can only get better, I'm sure. Hope your grandmother makes a smooth recovery and some for you!

Sorry to hear about your grandmother, but I am glad she is slowly improving and that she is in an acute rehab program (at least that's how it sounds). If she is in acute rehab and isn't ready to go home on the 10th your mom should talk to the social worker/case manager about sub acute rehabe or a skilled nursing facility. I'm sure they'll have a family meeting to dicuss.

Praying that you grandma gets a little better everyday and your mom keeps up her strength!

Sending and prayers for all of you as you all work to get your grandmother better. Bless your mom for going to the rehab facility every day. I'm sure it's a great boost for your grandmother. And bless you for dealing with the stress of work plus the stress of not beign able to help your mom and grandmother as much as you'd like. Please take care of yourself, too. We'll see you back here when the time is right.

Danielle, I'm very sorry to hear about all the problems your grandma has faced. It seems like she has more to endure and I will send prayers and good thoughts her way.

I think we'll always be here, so focus on your family and we'll see you when you actually get a chance to breathe.

I've been on a long break from the DIS too...been super crazy and finally had some time to come check up on all my Subs.

I'm so sorry to hear about your grandmother and hope everything continues to get better.

I'm also sorry to hear about your ear! Hopefully it's not bothering you now...

I just wanted to let everyone know that my mom has been moved to a Nursing/Rehab center right down the road from us. We are 5 minutes away so that is fantastic. She still has a long way to go before she can come home. If she still needs help then we will arrange for home care during the day while all of us are at work. Her improvement has been slow but steady.

Thought I had already replied to this but apparently the Dis ate my post!
Glad to hear that she is improving, and that she's into a center so close! My best wishes for her continued improvement!
