Sorry for the late post -- Mom is in very good spirits today. She had a good night's sleep and is very chatty and talkative. She's in a great mood and joking with us and staff. So all good.
She's still pretty weak and doesn't have a ton of energy, so she's really not able to chat with people or have many visitors. She gets worn out pretty quickly.
She is taking short walks down the hall and was cleared for regular food -- she was at an in-between, not puree, but not regular food. Now she's just regular (hospital) food.
They are hoping to take out her last chest tube today although not sure when.
