Update

Dear Friends and Family, 

It has been a month since we updated everyone via posthope.org.  First, we want to thank you for the continued support for our family. As time has passed, Mom has improved in many ways by getting some of her strength back and functioning "somewhat" on a daily basis, but her short term memory and confusion is our biggest concern!  [...]

"GOMARIEGO"

We would like to thank you for the prayers and well wishes! Mom arrived home last Friday. She has a long way to go and will need aggressive therapy. This therapy includes Physical, Occupational and Speech therapy. While home health and insurance covers some of this, we plan to maximize all resources to ensure a full recovery. So many people locally and an out-of-town have asked how they can help. We feel the best way to help is to gift Mom with the extra therapy she will need. A donation page is set up as "GOMARIEGO". You can access this link at the menu icon via donations on top right hand corner of this page. [...]

Out of Duke

Hello,


Thank you for all of the encouraging words and messages. All of these mean so much to my Mom and to our family.  Yesterday, she was discharged from Duke and moved to an inpatient, subacute, Rehabilitation Center.  With aggressive PT and OT, we believe she will have a great recovery. The road ahead is still long, but everyday is new and every step is encouraging.  Keep this process in your prayers. Mom has enjoyed reading all of the posts.  Keep those coming.[...]

Good News!

I am sorry for the delay in updates for Mom, but the ball has been rolling fast.  Mom was moved from Neuro ICU to step down on Friday night!!.  She is making progress slowly but surely.  The good news is that her kidneys are working and temporary dialysis improved everything.  After the first dialysis (temporary) treatment, she was somewhat conscious and has been getting better every hour. Sepsis was treated successfully. What have a miraculous recovery!!! [...]

Latest update on Mom

Mom has improved a great deal since Friday. She is able to open her eyes, wiggle her toes, respond to command, and nod her head for communication.

We have a long road ahead of us but gradual improvement is promising. Thank goodness for the team of doctors at Duke who literally saved her life. We will be in touch soon.[...]
