Glad for the positive news, Laurie. Take care.

My Mom asked me to thank you all for your support. She appreciates it greatly. She has had a couple of infectious complications and is still in hospital.

Because she's been on prednisone for quite awhile due to her arthritis, she's susceptible to infection, and has a couple of them: MRSA and C. difficile.

MRSA she's likely had before now because a few weeks prior to her scheduled surgery she ended up with cellulitis in her right leg. At that time the surgery was postponed. They ended up going ahead with it on schedule though- they didn't want her to wait.

C. difficile she has had previously, for similar reasons, back in 2006.

Despite these complications, she is improving daily. They removed the pacemaker wire today, and her breathing is improved, though she's still receiving supplemental oxygen. She's able to stand and walk without a walker. She walked from her bed to the window and back a couple of times yesterday, with good strength and coordination.

I had a c. difficile infection after a ruptured appendix in 2008. It was much worse than the rupture. I can't guarantee that it was the difference, but my insides only started to recover once I started eating probiotic yoghurt. I recommend it to your mom.

Thankyou very much, John. You're right, it's very important, indeed. And I bought some probiotic yoghurt for her a couple of days ago and have brought some samples of it to her while she was waiting for the dietician to put it on her menu. She's getting it daily now.

If you are always looking back you can't see what's in front of you so when you bump your head again you have no one to blame but yourself!

Mom was released from the Ottawa Heart Institute November 13 and has been staying at her sister's home in Merrickville. She'll likely be going home to Arnprior this weekend. She's walking without the walker now, they say. Smile
