Thank you, all, for your prayers for my MIL. Her surgery was delayed until 5:00 PM on Friday due to trauma patients arriving but she eventually was able to get in and did very well. We visited her on Sunday and R said she was looking much better. We found out that the hospital had to give her some blood on Saturday because she was very weak. Sunday was her first day of PT, which she was able to do but it also wiped her out. We don’t know how long she will be in the hospital or how long she will be at the PT facility after. One day at a time!
Little K did great meeting Okasan! Her first question was “What is the Japanese word for Grandmother?” Upon hearing it is “Obasan,” Little K proceeded to use it in practically every sentence. She definitely charmed her!
We are working on moving Okasan to an assisted living facility in Raleigh. Of course, the great facilities are very expensive and the good ones have incredibly long waiting lists. Hoping and praying that we find a facility with an opening by the first of the year!
