In speaking to the daughter today, I learned a few things.
Friday, the day after I worked on her back, the doctor ordered x-rays of her back infection. They expect no change from these but are going to take another set Monday.
Today, she got out of bed on her own...without any pain. This is quite a feat for someone that hasn't managed to get out of bed without pain in four months and has only accomplished getting up a few times on her own. Mom reports that her back pain is greatly reduced and she is feeling a better over all.
On the other hand, she was found unconscious during the late afternoon today due to very low blood sugar. This is after a day of eating well. I find this very concerning.
