More Updates

Well, I am so glad that I got to see Grandma and Grandpa and MOM last week! I was pleasantly surprised to see that Grandma still looks pretty much the same. Her face is slightly droopy and can only lift half of it when she smiles. (she calls it a half-a**ed smile, haha) She can lift her left pinky slightly. I also enjoyed seeing Ashley and Sandy again and seeing Ethan for the first time. He's a DOLL!

Today I talked to Mom to see when she was going to Shakopee to leave tomorrow morning. I was then informed that she cancelled/postponed her flight as Grandma is back in the hospital due to tingling in her lips and arms. They're going to check her Coumadin levels and adjust them and then adjust her BP meds.

And just in case you're wondering....Nigel is much better, too. Almost back to normal. For a comparison, here's the weights. Simon's was 12.4 oz on 2/17.


Here are Nigel's weights:

2/17 7.8oz
2/18 8.2oz
2/19 9.4oz
2/21 10.2oz
2/24 11.2oz

So he's almost back to his normal weight. I'm not sure what he was exactly, but it was very close to Simon's. If not a smidge bigger.

I'll blog more when I know more.

I sure hope that your Grandma is doing better.. I think once everything is regulated and stable she will make remarkable leaps in her recovery, she sounds like a high spirited woman.
YAY for Nigel, he is gaining like a big boy again. Take care and Hugs!
