Sandy - People get crazy ideas in their head, don't they?
Thank you for asking about my step mom. She finally took a turn for the better and is slowly improving day by day. She can now eat soft foods again, and is able to stay alert more and talk "almost" normally (though her speech is a bit slurred). We are so thankful to God that the hemorrhage stopped when it did and didn't get any bigger. Come to find out, what she had was a type of stroke. There's the clotting type of stroke, and then there's the "bleeding out" type of stroke, which is what she had. None of her limbs seem to be affected and her mouth isn't drooping or anything, it's just her speech and vision and stomach (started out as constant puking, now it's just a little nausea) that seem to be affected. Her vision is pretty blurry right now, which we're really hoping will improve over time. Her memory is fine, too. The speech therapist gave her some memory tests and she has a better memory than me! LOL. She's 82 years old, by the way. My dad is 81 and in a nursing home due to Alzheimer's. He was 12 years older than my mom (my real mom, that is--she passed away back in 1995 from diabetes complications).
Okay now that you know part "my" life story, LOL.....
Hi to everyone else. Happy Monday!
I decided that I needed to stay home this morning after dropping my DD off at school so I could get some work done, some housework, and also do my workout. I haven't been able to do much with being at the hospital so much with my step mom. She's in good hands now and her son is staying with her a lot, so I'll just call to see how she's doing and then maybe go back to see her tomorrow.

Bonita- I am glad your hubby is still open to adoption and the classes. it has to be hard to get all excited and then be asked to wait I could only imagine it would be some what close to the dissapointment of a loss. Bein told something great was going to be in the works then the breaks put on and told you can try it again later. Maybe I am wrong but that is how I would think I would feel.
Mary- That is great about your step mom and good for you having some "me" time.... even though you are cleaning too lol
