Quick Update From Arkansas

Well, my mom got out of the hospital on Monday and is pretty quickly regaining her strength. She's started to eat better and is sleeping much better than in the hospital. Her blood pressure was too high and that was causing some fluid to build up around her lungs. They drained that and gave her more medicine and her pressure has been steady for about six days now. If she continues as she has today I'll probably head back home on Friday afternoon. Fortunately there are a lot of folks around to check on her, as well as her husband. I probably won't be back to regular posting here until later in the weekend, though.

Thanks everyone for their good thoughts. I really appreciate it and something certainly seems to have helped.
