I wish I had better news. Mom is still listed as critically ill.  Not a very good day as she has pneumonia in one of her lungs, along with a urinary track infection on top of being septic.  The Antibiotic has been changed to hopefully attack all of the infections. They are being aggressive with the antibiotic at this point as she has so much going on.  She had a cat scan done this evening to see what else may be going on in her abdomen. We will get the results of that tomorrow. She did eat some today and is loving being fed ice chips. Again, her highlight was being bathed. "It just feels so good" she says! The staff is being very attentive to her needs and genuinely caring for her.  Our hope is that the antibiotics kick in and she gets to a state of at least being comfortable so we can take her home.   The one thing she says when she is awake is " I just want to go home."  Blaine is with her 24/7, so for now, that is the closest situation to "being home" she has right now.  Blaine won't leave her . Please keep praying for her.

    Gena, I am praying for your wonderful Mom, the family, and for the medical staff. I send my love to her, too. I hope Blaine is taking care of himself, too. He is such a great caregiver. Hugs all around!!
