September 28 – Day 779

Joyce had a great day. Joyce continues to do her exercises and is increasing her grip strength with the exercises. She was doing great all day yesterday. After I got her ready for bed and gave her the medication she didn’t have a coughing episode but she threw up everything but I assured her it was not a problem I will clean it up it just clothes and we have plenty and she seemed to relax after that. Even though she had no medication in her system she still slept all through the night after that.

September 27 – Day 778

Joyce had a great day. She had a wonderful day at therapy she was just talking her head off. Then when Wendy her caregiver brought her back home she talked until the afternoon lady took over. Wendy told her she was leaving and in Joyce fashion she asked her where are you going they all laughed so today was a good day all a round for Joyce. She slept well through the night with no issues.

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.

September 25 – Day 776

Joyce had a great weekend. Justina came Saturday and we got Joyce into the shower. She is continuing with her exercises but I am noticing her grip strength diminishing so I am having the caregiver start a regime with the nerf balls we have 4 different sizes and I think this will help. More concentration will be on the left hand this is the weaker one the right hand she can curl up into a fist but the left she is having trouble with. She is sleeping well at night and we just finished her medication for her respiratory issues.

Joyce had a great day. Joyce had her outpatient therapy and she did very well was alert until maybe the end and her caregiver said she was getting tired. She brought her boots that she wears at night but since she a different physical therapist she did give us much advice or even look at them so I will have to call and talk to them. Joyce was very up spirited when i came home she was very alert and happy until bedtime. Her night was good and slept well through the night.

September 20 – Day 771

Joyce had a great day. She was very sleepy her caregiver took her to her outpatient therapy and the speech and occupational therapist could not wake Joyce up. Physical did range of motion and measure her after her Botox injections there is improvement in the movement of the ankles. She came home and slept the rest of the day. Don’t know if she is recovering from her respiratory issues or did she not sleep very well. She is sleeping when I check her but if she is not having coughing issues or a lot of movement I would not be aware as the monitors wont pick that up if she is just awake and resting in her bed.

Joyce had a great weekend. We have a afternoon caregiver but still looking for someone that has a personality to coincide with Joyce. Joyce after her Botox shots has loosened up those ankles we can so an improvement. The caregivers noticed a difference before and after the shots so that is a positive sign. Joyce’s medication is clearing up her congestion she is feeling and sounding much better. Her nights has be restful which is good to aid in her recovery from this respiratory issue.

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.
