Thank you so much, Larry, for keeping us posted as often as you can. I completely agree with <a href='http://www.caregiving.com/members/janshriver/' rel=\"nofollow\">@janshriver</a>. You inspire me to keep going!


I continue to be amazed at the complexity of your mom's condition and how well you are managing it. I hope she adjusts well and recovers after her surgery, and there are no other delays.
