Vitamin B12...Miracle Drug?

Mom seems like a different person since receiving her B12 shot on Friday. She is more cognizant and able to understand instructions better, at least for me. She slept from 9:00 to 3:00 AM tonight, and last night she slept right through the night until 5 AM. Now she is up, bright eyed and bushy tailed, coloring in her books. She had been receiving them every month up until a year ago when she stopped going to the clinic. The doctor wants to start them back up now and after seeing her improvement, I agree with the doc. Mom's B12 was just slightly above where it should be when we started the shots. Now it could have been really low. She's still confused, just not as much as she had been.

Poor sister is experiencing Hurricane Hanna. Last time I spoke with her she was watching water pour into her basement from the egress window and hoping it didn't get too high. I hope she and her husband were able to stem the flow of water. She has had a tough week too. I hope things get better for her soon.

I received my Clickfree backup drive yesterday and immediately backed up my photos, music and files from my laptop. I was pretty impressed by it; it was plug and play easy to use. This will be extremely useful for future backups and now I feel safe knowing that all of the music and videos that I've purchased on iTunes is backed up along with all of my digital photos.

Glad the B12 is helping some. I've read good things about it.

Sorry about your sister. Around here, we don't have enough water but out east it's a different story.

B12? I'm going to have to go google that.

I had in my head that your sister was still in the Duluth area for some reason. Hope the water stops coming in her window soon!

Will you have help with the move then?

Yup, poor sister is just outside of Philly. That's why she provides more moral support (phone) than face time. Those $500 airfares are tough to take. I'm on my way out on Saturday, though!...and I never really lived in Duluth. I'm a Michigan gal!
