Mom is Back!!!!

It's amazing that as quickly as mom became ill, she is now almost back to her normal self, at least mentally. She is quite aware of everyone now, her memories have almost all returned, and she is starting to learn how to walk again. She is joking, she is serious, and she is talking. They moved her today to a different hospital, one where they can take better care of her and one where she was a patient before when they operated on her knees. She likes it much better there!

In less than two weeks, I'll see my mom again and she and I will spend some quality time together!

Thank you to all of those who have cared and sent me such sweet messages!

I've found and scanned some pics of Mom I have from her past.

Wow, that is so good! It is a good new to know that your mother is getting better!
I don't know your mother but I think she is a very good person according to what I read about her.

I'm happy for all of you! :)

I'm sure you are counting the hours until you see your mom! That will feel so great after all of the stress and worry this summer.

Joe,

Such great news! With time, patience, care and faith, we can recover from just about all things. I'm sure you will find her appreciative of what has been given back to her.

Wow! That's fantastic news!! And by the way, you look just like your mom...especially the picture where she's holding the little dog :-)

I'd say something profound in Italian, but I only speak English.
