just have to share:)

well after such a rotten day yesterday I knew that today had to be better and it was, we weighed my mom tonight and she is just about 120 lbs, she entered the hospital at just under 100lbs, she has not been this weight for 3 years, before she lost all her weight she was a steady 140. and she is/was 5'8" so she was still thin, at the 100 pounds she was the kind of picture that you see when someone is anerexic,, I guess being there every night for with her dinner and making sure she eats is paying off . woo hoo.

Re: just have to share:)

That is great news Jags. It is difficult to keep the weight on and I do find that Mom maintains better the more I am there at meal times. Hopefully she will be able to maintain her weight now.... or should we say you will

I do hope tomorrow is a good day as well

Love, deb
