Six Word Saturday…February 19

My six words for today are:

“Sick folks are finally getting better!”

“MeMa” and Brad

Brad continues to improve daily.  He’s still recovering at home.  Headaches and fatigue are his main complaints these days, but each day seems to bring improvement in those areas.  It’s been three weeks since he first became sick with what was diagnosed as the flu (eventually sending him to ICU for 4 days).  We’ve had several people from our area seriously ill with viral infections, just like Brad.  I have no idea when Brad will be able to return to work, or if there will be any work for him to return to.  I’m praying about those things daily.

My mother-in-law was released from the hospital on Thursday evening, after spending just shy of a week there.  She was suffering from dehydration and renal failure.  We’re still not 100% sure what caused this, but her doctor suspects some of her daily medications caused her kidneys to fail.  These meds have been discontinued, and her kidney functions have improved to nearly normal.  I hope the medications were indeed the culprit, and not something more sinister.

There was much  concern about whether my mother-in-law would be able to return to the personal care home, due to her declining state of health, but the personal care home has agreed to give it a try.  We are praying that she continues to improve and grow stronger with time.  We really hate to think of putting her in a nursing home.  Her mental health has declined somewhat during this illness, and I am praying that it will improve as her overall health improves. 

The sun is shining brightly outside, and it’s a beautiful day.  This day symbolizes how I feel at the moment.  Finally walking through another storm, and into the sunlight.  I hope the sunshine lasts for a while…

  1. I was so happy to hear your news..How is Jennifer doing?

  2. We’ve lost our sunshine and I’m now listening to the rain on the roof.

    Glad everyone’s health is improving – that’s definitely some great news!

  3. I’m so glad everyone seems to be feeling better. I hope this includes Jennifer. 🙂

  4. I am glad that both of them are improving. It is hard to see people that we love get so sick!

    Glad you had a nice day. Ours have been nice lately too…but I hear the cold and rainy days are coming.
