Another Rollercoaster Day!

It's like being on a rollercoaster, without the fun!  This morning Mum was not with us.  She was out - in a coma!  No reaction, no flicker ... nothing.  There was no-one there.  Sister in charge was worried and said she might have had a stroke.  This afternoon ... she wiggled her feet when we tickled her, she closed her eyes when I tried to wipe away her tears, then opened them and looked us!  She twitched her nose when we tickled it and moved her head!  WTF!  Dr came and said that she could be in a deep sleep and it could just be that the sedative it taking a long time to work out of her body!  They will do a brain scan either tomorrow or Thursday.  He doesn't want to bug her and move her around too soon.  He says she could STILL come out of this!

She is so brave and not ready to leave us. And we will continue to fight WITH her until she has had enough!

Oh Janet .. hugs and prayers to you all.
Saw my Mum over weekend - in her own world. She knew I was there. A blessing - she is in no pain

Your old lady looks like she isn't going to give this up without a fight. *Sending virtual hugs*
