She's Back

Most of you know that my mom has been through quite an ordeal.  Three weeks ago, the morning after my last post, she was hospitalized with a stroke and a heart attack. 

She was sedated and put on a ventilator to help her breath for a few days. 

She developed pneumonia, and a intestinal bacterial infection.

She went to a rehabilitation hospital.  Five days later she had another heart attack.

She went to the Heart Hospital. 
 I should say she made sure she went to the Heart Hospital after instructing the paramedics to take her there several times!

One Stroke
Two Heart Attacks
Three Hospitals
Three Weeks

Before she came home she told my nephew Chris that she has not been able to read any blogs or twitters for two weeks!  I told her when you get home you will have to tweet something.  She said I could say
"I'm Back!"

She Certainly Is!
