About Jackson's Mom + one other thing

So this morning Jackson (my Dh) called me to say that he'd talked to both of his brothers in the know about his mom.  She was sitting up and was coherent, had enough vision back that she could recognize her sons & daughter with her, she could recite the names of her grandchildren & their ages - though she was still in the ICU.  According to the MRI (of which she got to have 2 of yesterday because during the first time, the MRI techs discovered they'd left part of the machine back in Boise, ID - a 3 hour drive away), she definitely had a stroke, and she was discovered to have some serious heart problems too.  This morning she was to be flown to Kennewick, WA to a heart & stroke specialist (hospital) where she would have a pace maker installed, then she would be moved to a hospital in Walla Walla, WA; apparently Jackson's sister Pam lives not too far from there.

So she's doing much better, but she will still be hospitalized for an undetermined amount of time.  Thanks to those of you who are praying for her.  I called the Vernal LDS Temple yesterday and had her name put on the prayer roll; I think that I might take a few minutes to call a few of the other temples for the same reason.

Oh one other thing, last night when Jackson called his sister Cindy to tell her how their Mom was doing,  she told him that her daughter Alicia had just given birth to a baby boy about half an hour previously.  Just one other reason to keep January 26th in our minds.
