Making Your Home Sing Monday Linky Party

Making your home sing Mondays

Welcome to the Making Your Home Sing Monday linky party!  Every day you are doing something to make your house into a home for yourself and your family (if you have one). 

My point with each Monday post is, what are YOU doing or going to do today to make your home sing?  It can be an attitude or an action. So have fun, do some blog hopping, and link up!  Thanks!

Topics can include marriage, parenting, encouraging women, organization, cleaning, saving money, our behavior and attitudes, homemaking, homeschooling, recipes.....the opportunities are endless.

Note: We had 115 linkups last week!  You guys are awesomely amazing and amazingly awesome!  Don't forget to visit one another and try to leave a comment on at least one blog to encourage someone today!  :)  

On the left sidebar (down towards the bottom) is the "Making Your Home Sing! Monday" button which I'd love for you to grab and paste into your post!  It is a "no-follow" button.

I actually planned on having a "real" post this week, I really did.  But my mom is back in the hospital again. So I've been busy running back and forth spending time with her.

She has lost the ability to communicate again and the doctors don't know why.   She seems to be able to say the word "no" pretty well, though, lol!

She said "no" very clearly twice today, and then even said a complete sentence.  After that, she was back to not being able to talk.

She did NOT have a stroke, for which I'm thankful.  But now they are in the process of eliminating things in order to figure out the cause.

She recognized me today, I think.  She is now able to smile (she couldn't smile two days ago) and seemed very happy to see me.  Four days ago she was talking and laughing and conversing and then, in one day, she lost the ability to talk, smile, or move.

But I think she couldn't move because she was just so out of it.  She just laid there unmoving when they brought her into the hospital, unable to respond to anything around her at the time.

But now she can smile and move her arms and legs, just can't talk.  Beyond a few words, I mean.

I don't know if she knows specifically who I am, but she recognizes that I am someone she knows.  I suspect that she knows I am her daughter, since she greeted me with a hug (and she tried to form a kiss) and she didn't do that to the nurse. 

Anyway, I feel that we, as her family, are an important part of her recovery, so I want to be there when I can.

Back in July the doctors, at one point, gave her two hours to live but God brought her back, so all this extra time with her is BONUS time and we are making the most of it!  :)
