Mom's news

They moved her yesterday from Villeneuve to another hospital in the area (lack of beds for one, and the other hospital is more geriatrics-oriented).
I visited her today. As they fear infection (the nurses told me about possible tuberculosis) I had to wear a mask, gown and gloves, and hand-wash with red Betadyne when leaving. No taking risk I washed my hair and changed when arriving home - for Paul, I've been vaccinated as everybody in my generation.
She felt better, obviously, she could swallow some liquid food, so I think muscles in her throat aren't paralyzed after all, thanks God. She's patient, which is good as I couldn't subscribe for a TV right now (nothing works during weekend, of course). I'll do that next Monday, and bring her her reading glasses and some cats magazine :o)
She coughed only a very little whilst I was here and seemed to breath normally. She speaks more clearly too. I told her of all your messages; she doesn't know you but it made her smile.

I've only just got back online after a long absence :( So very sorry to hear this news. My fingers are crossed. I know how scary it feels (dad is awaiting a triple bypass operation on Tuesday) ... and it's horrible horrible :((

Nom d'un petit bonhomme, c'est encore pire. Je pense bien à toi et à ton père, ma grande. Tu nous tiens au courant, hein ? Je t'embrasse bien fort.

I'm glad she's able to swallow and that she's in a hospital that sounds like it will take good care of her now. ~big hugs~

That's great news. I hope she continues to improve quickly and that they figure out what was wrong so your Mom can prevent it from happening again.

I'm so glad your mother is feeling better and able to swallow liquid. That's very good news!

I'm also glad our messages make her smile! That can only be a good thing! *g*

Still sending positive thoughts to you and her.
