GRANDMA GETS TO EAT EITHER JELLO OR APPLESAUCE

Hello everyone!. I thought I would give you just a quick update. Grandma has over 50% swallowing, so they are letting her have some jello I think or it might be applesauce. The first day I heard about this she had 50% and they said they would let her try some jello to see how she would do.  Then the next day was a little more and I heard something about applesauce. I am not quite sure. Also, today my uncle called my grandmothers name, and I guess she was asleep, and it sounded like my uncle was in distress so she whipped her head around real fast. Almost all the way to the left, everyone saw this, even the nurses, they went whoa, they were a little startled that she could do that. That is some improvement.

Also when Health South releases Grandma we are having her put into Manor Park to continue her therapy. This will also give us time to get the house ready for her, for when she is ready to come home. We want her to have as much physical therapy that she can get, that way she will be able to do more for herself when she does come home. She is a strong, proud woman, and this will get her back on her feet, and not have to depend on us as much. She was already having to depend on us because of her not being able to see very well. I was helping to balance her checkbook, and pay her bills, mom, and my uncle was taking her to doctor appointments and to the store. Now this it will be too much if she can’t do for herself when she gets home. So we are making sure she has all the physical therapy that she needs before she gets home.

If she needs some additional once she is home we will make sure she has that also. We are just happy and blessed that she is still with us. She is our Christmas Miracle. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Everyone

UPDATE ON GRANDMA

  I was just legrandmatting everyone know a quick update on my Grandmother. She passed out during her physical therapy session today, but she is fine. She was just dehydrated, and they hooked an I.V. up to her to replenish her fluids. My mom and me were talking about this the other day that she was not getting enough nutrients through her feeding tube. She is still having trouble swallowing so she is not able to have liquids by mouth so she is not able to replenish her fluids like she should after her rehab sessions.

 It really was only a matter of tome before this happened. It was during the session when they were helping her walk and she passed out. The guy behind her was able to keep her upright and get her in a chair. The y called the ambulance and a doctor checked her out  and she was o.k.. She is still at Health South Rehab Center. The doctor thought it best to keep her there and just hook up an I.V. and just monitor her there. Otherwise she is doing very well on rehab. She is still having trouble with her left arm, but she was complaining that it was hurting and itching. So I believe the nerves are waking up. When I have more to report I will let you know. Thank you for all your prayers.

Grandma is doing well right now

My Grandmother is doing well, and still spunky as ever. My Uncle told her that he was going to take her water away manage told him “Bull Shit!”. That definitely sounds like something that my grandmother would say. She is moving her arm, leg, and head. They said all her vitals are good.

We will keep praying, and hope for the best. We all want her home. Nobody likes to wait, but the body takes time to heal.She is 85 and we still have her with us. Thanks to all of you for your prayers. They mean so much. I will try to post more reviews later. I am having internet trouble at home, and I am writing this at physical therapy. I will talk with you later. Thank you.
