August 14 – Day 734

Joyce had a great weekend. Joyce’s weekend went pretty well with no issues to report. She rested well on Sunday and watched TV and laughed at the comedies on Saturday. Her exercises continue daily which keeps her range of motion. Her neurologist called and she will be doing the Botox treatment in her feet to help her get those heels down on the floor. She had a little restlessness last night with coughing but went to sleep right after but she was wide awake at 530 for her water.

Continue to pray and send positive thoughts so that things continue to progress and that God keeps putting his loving hands on Joyce to heal her.

August 11 – Day 731

Joyce had a great day. She was with Justina in the morning and with Wendy in the afternoon. The new splint for her finger is working very well. No therapy today but still doing her exercises. Her night was off and on with bouts of coughing but she went right back to sleep. Got a cleaning brush for her peg tube noticed lately it was taking al long time for even water to drain. Cleaned it and working fine probably will do water flush with the syringe and plunger instead of letting gravity drain through the tube.

August 9 – Day 729

Joyce had a great day. Had my caregiver train a new girl so I have more than one if a situation arises. Joyce was very tired and slept all day. She had speech and physical therapy and slept right through it they did the best they could with her. She had a good night with no issues and slept without any coughing episodes. Other than that it was just a peaceful resting day for Joyce.

August 8 – Day 728

Joyce had a great day today. It is now the second anniversary of Joyce’s illness. It was a down day for me but I guess my prayers were answered. because when i went home it was like someone flipped a switch on Joyce. She was smiling and laughing and she was a chatter box until she went to bed. I told her that was the best gift that she could give me today. She did all her exercises had a good speech appointment. her night was good just a little coughing nothing major.

August 7 – Day 727

Joyce had a pretty good weekend. She continues to do her exercises and her out patient therapy is going fine. Next week she will start her physical therapy as her evaluation was completed this week. She has been having a lot of coughing episodes lately. Last night she was up to about 1AM with coughing had to change her once about 11 PM. Other than that no other issues to report. I told Joyce if taking care of her is what she did with our girls she is one super woman and I salute her and it made her get emotional but Mothers like Joyce who had to raise the girls when I was deployed she is one special woman and I am humbled before her.
