Praise God! My mother in law is coming home today! She is still very weak and needs oxygen, but her kidney infection is clearing up. Her sugar is high and they have started her on some stronger medication than she had been taking before. She will have a home health nurse come and check on her for the next couple of days.
The Doctor said someone would need to stay with her during her waking hours to help her around the house, do cleaning, cooking, and just keep an eye on her vitals.
My mother in law kept our son from the time he was 5 weeks old until he was old enough to stay by himself. We paid her $75.00 per week to watch him. We will now be paying our son $75.00 per week to watch his grandmother. Of course, he didn't want any money to do it, but we felt if we were going to have to pay someone anyway, it may as well be him. He knows how to cook, clean, take her sugar, temperature, etc.. He will be there from the time we leave for work until we come home, than my husband and I will take turns sleeping at her house until she is well enough to be left alone.
I have noticed that most things in life eventually come full circle. There's a lesson to be learned in that. How we treat others will someday come back to us. She has been so strong and so helpful and kind to us, now it's our turn to help her.
Thanks so much for your continued prayers.
Have a blessed day!
