Well, mom had another doctor's appointment today and it turns out she has shingles? It's like the old person's version of the chicken pox is what I have heard so far. The poor woman just can't catch a break. She has it on her shoulder and upper back. I didn't get to talk to her much because she was just walking out the door with dad to go pick up more pills.
For those of you who don't know, mom had surgery on August 2nd to correct a bladder issue and had about 5 weeks off for that, then about a week after that, she was diagnosed with bronchitis and had to take 2 weeks off for that, then was at work for 3 days and went on her girls weekend (when she had the stroke) and then tried to work on Monday and Tuesday of the next week before they took her in and discovered the clot. She finally gets out of the damn hospital and now she gets shingles... I can't help but laugh.
My only update from yesterday is that she had a good day. She was pretty tuckered out by the end of the day, but it was a good one. We had some visitors and we went to visit grandma and made her dinner, so that was nice.
I know that I ran into some of you at work today, but I just want to throw this out there again. Mom enjoys company. She is not supposed to be focusing her eyes, which doesn't leave a lot left, so please don't hesitate to stop by or give her a call sometime. :) She enjoys it!
