Very good news from Shannon, but as you will see, Linda needs all the prayers and healing wishes you can spare. Please keep sending them.
I just wanted to let you know that Mom was just fast-tracked into the rehabilitation unit at Oakville-Trafalgar hospital. She is being put onto a program of 3 hours a day of physio, plus has a new dietician and nephrologist (kidney doctor) - whom she LOVES. They are working together to try and preserve Mom's kidney function. As of right now, she is severely anemic and if they can't get her blood iron back up and stable, she will have to go on dialysis. This aside, her other readings are better than before and Mom is resting comfortably (in a very pretty room, I might add - not too "hospital-like") and slowly gaining strength.
If you're local and would like to speak or visit with her, she is located in Room 3232 (bed 1) of the rehabilitation unit (3-Centre). The hospital's main switchboard is 905-845-2571. I'm afraid I don't have an extension number for the rehab unit.
Again, our family's most sincere thanks for all of the positive energy you have been sending our way. I know that all of the prayers, visits, emails, phone calls, etc. have made the utmost difference in helping put my mother on the road to recovery. You have lifted her spirits and given her renewed faith. This whole experience has definitely changed her emotionally and spiritually - for the better, she'd say. The physical part, well, we believe that can also be improved with ongoing positive thought, so don't stop thinking and praying....
