Update: my mom

A lot has changed since I last posted about my mom. Things were touch and go for a while but eventually she showed signs of improving. She went to surgery and got a tracheotomy for the ventilator to be connected to. She began recovering her strength and her ability to communicate (write) improved. She was moved to a long term hospital with plans to wean her from the ventilator. It's becoming more and more obvious that she will not be able to tolerate breathing on her own for and real length of time. She is very tired and feels like she is not getting enough air, in spite of the ventilator.
