thanks for the warm wishes

Thanks so much for you kind thoughts and good wishes for my mom. My family and I really appreciate it.

Mom is feeling a bit better today as they are pumping her full of whole blood and I have to be honest here, it's nice that she doesn't look so scary sick because her color is better. We got a couple of answers today. She does have a severe bacterial infection in her digestive system. But there is some internal bleeding that they have not narrowed down yet. She is scheduled for an endoscopy tomorrow morning and we are hoping that shows something.

We were able to move our tickets for the Not So Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom from Tuesday to Thursday and we think we will be able to go. We might as well go as visiting hours in the ICU end at 6:00pm and we will be back to the hotel by the time it starts. And to tell the truth, my sister and I can use the break. It's been a tough couple of days. Mom really wants us to go also. She is really upset that we are spending as much time as we are with her. But we told her the reality is, she would have gotten sick no matter where she was and at least we are all together. If my parents and I didn't join my sister and her family in Orlando, I would have had to call her and make her fly home.

I'm glad to hear that you mom is doing a little better, Margie. I can imagine that you and your sister really do need a break. It is exhausting, I'm sure.
Continued prayers and good wishes for you all!

It is good that you are all together for this. I hope they find what is causing this quickly. And, I'm still horrible, because I think it's great your costume will be seen!

Good to hear that there is some improvement. Hope the doctors can get things figured out soon. It is hard on you and your sister to watch her be so sick.

Remember that we have all of you in our prayers.
