Moving Forward As Best She Can

Filed under: Doris Update — by thepluckygastronome @ 11:07 am

I got teased by Doris yesterday. We were on the phone and she was complimenting me on my new blog pic.  “You know,” she said. “I’ve never seen you that bald. “When you were born you had at least an inch of hair growing.”

I had forgotten about that…  she’s right!

“You know what’s happening?” I replied.  “I looked in the mirror this morning and see some of my hair is starting to grow back!  The only problem is that it is only the gray hairs.”   What gives?!!  I am in the MIDDLE of treatment.  All the hair is supposed to be falling out.  But the gray hairs?!!  “My friend Sandy dropped by and I told her about this phenomenon.  Her response was, “Just be glad they’re growing!”   Well put.

Mom is plugging along in the LTAC. She recently developed another infection. They have given her a second type of antibiotic to try and knock this new one down.  From the sound of her voice it appears to be working. She had developed a nasty cough that I don’t hear anymore.  She is eating better and her numbers are up in several good ways.  We are encouraged by her progress despite the small infectious setbacks. She sees the cardio surgeon doc next week for a progress/planning session. She is hopeful she will be ready for the Triple Bypass.

We want to thank those of you who have reached out to Mom in ways big and small. She enjoys your visits and phone calls immensely. Thank you especially for your thoughts and prayers.

  1. Maybe it will come back that beautiful salt and pepper gray like Hedi Georgie and you will look sleek and fabulous just like her as we hoped we would.
