Our Mom, of three, the grandma of eight, and great-gram of four, soon to be five, is getting better and stronger each day from her most recent stroke which occured the first weekend in March. Tim/Bev and Mike/Carolyn are doing a great job keeping her on a schedule involving in-house exercise, a low-fat, low-sodium diet, physical therapy appointments and ongoing doctor visits. She's surrounded by people who want the best for her. Having always been fiercely independent, she sometimes feels "too monitored" for her comfort level. She hopes to go home someday, back to her little Indiana town , going to the library and lunch out with the girls. We wish that for her as well, but, her needs are more complex now, which complicates her freedoms. She'll celebrate her 90th birthday, this April 4th.
