My mom is in ICU with pneumonia

Having COPD, it is easy for her to suffer bouts of pneumonia, but she normally bounces back surprisingly fast. She’s tough. But this time they had to intubate her to assist her breathing. They are working on weaning her from the tube. We are awaiting results of a CT scan they did to look for more fluid and mucus in her lungs. She’s stable and doctors are hopeful for a good recovery. She’s lucid and aware of what’s going on, which is great. She knows we’re here for her I think. Still, not being able to communicate in a substantial way (she can’t write – she’s too weak, and she can’t speak of course) is disconcerting. I wish I could talk with her.
