Since the last update on the status of Mom’s health we have been through a roller coaster ride of emotions. Thank goodness it looks like I can now finally bring you good news.
As I wrote the previous post we were all under the impression that she was doing better and would recover soon. Just a few days later her health took a turn for the worse. Mom could no longer breathe by herself and her infection sky rocketed. Since then she was battling uphill to get better. The longer we were waiting the harder it got to stay patient and expect improvement.
After three hard weeks the good news finally arrived. The doctors have found out which infection she has, and not only this but there is also treatment for it and chances of survival are quite high. This means she has been receiving the proper treatment and is now seeming to be better.
She is still in the ICU unit and even though this is scary in itself, I also know this is where she is in the best hands possible. The doctors and nurses have been very kind and competent and they are very attentive to her every moment. People have asked me why she has not been taken to a hospital in Denmark and I can honestly say that she is being treated to well I would never consider moving her anywhere else.
The last days Mom has been awake enough to ask for her hair brush and her mobile phone, so she will soon be allowed receive your messages of love. She will most likely stay in the hospital for weeks more but at least it looks as if she will return now. We are aware that it can easily be a month before she will feel “normal” again but we will take this any day for having Mom back.
Thank you for all your messages in here and on Amy’s blog. And thank you for the many re-blogs. And for the private e-mails. We have been reading each and every comment several times. They mean so much to us. Mom is a very kind woman. Still the amount of love we have received is so great and even more than any of us had imagined to see. Thank you for giving us hope and comfort and for sending your support to Mom.
Like on the last post I will not respond to any comments myself. Until now we have only been allowed to tell her about your support (mobile devides still strictly forbidden). I am sure that Mom will be overwhelmed when she returns to so much love and I believe that she will respond to you personally when finding the energy to do so.
Love back to all of you,
