My Mom's in Rehab!

No - Not That Kind of Rehab! 

She's actually in a Cardiac Rehabilitation Center,  although believe it or not, they call it "ReHab" for short.

Which of course makes me giggle, because I keep thinking at any minute I might run into Lindsay Lohan or Paris Hilton.  I think it's safe, though, since so far, I see no sign of the paparazzi.  Come to think of it, this might be a good place for either of them to come and hide.  A rehab center in South Jersey, owned and operated by Hasidic Jews is probably the last place anyone would ever look.

I keep joking with the staff here about running into celebrities, but they don't seem to get it. (Oh Lucy, where are you when I need you?)

Anyway, I guess I should bring you up-to-date...

Mom's doing pretty well.  They take her to the gym downstairs every morning for physical therapy, and it does seem to be helping.  She's walking better, and her physical strength and dexterity seems to be improving daily. 

Unfortunately, she still has to go back to Jersey Shore Hospital for an additional stent procedure.  That hasn't been scheduled yet, though.  We're still waiting to hear from the doctor.

Here's a picture of my sister sitting with my mom in the courtyard of Atlantic Coast Rehabilitation Center.
