...And now I need a day off

I visited mom in ICU yesterday morning and found her alert and asking to get caught up on the events of past week, both personal, family, and at her church conference, which was held over the weekend. I'm pushing fifty, but was joyfully thinking, "It's my mommy!" She's been so out of it up to now and unable to talk when she wasn't.

I came back after work and she was gone. They'd moved her back up to progressive care again without informing me. But it didn't take long to track her down. Here's hoping she's off the ICU-progressive care yo-yo and on the high road to the rehab facility.

No PT or early-morning mom visits this AM. So I plugged a bit on Nano.

They called me right away when she was moving from progressive care back down to ICU on Tuesday. "Not serious," they said, "Just wanted to keep you informed."

*Very* disconcerting to go visit her in ICU and see the room empty. Although I suppose if something really bad had happened, her bed still would have been there.
