Home Again

Mom has been home just over 24 hours, so I feel safe in posting this. Last time I posted too soon and she went right back. She seems more stable this time around. She was way too many days in the hospital--basically 2 full weeks. We are hopeful that she is on the road to recovery which is expected to take 3 - 12 months. The medication she is on is intravenous and is very caustic, so she's pretty pooped out from the illness and the meds. We are just happy she is home in her own bed with her own nightgown and all that good stuff. You know you've been in the hospital too much when you are happy to have soft kleenex and a feather pillow.

I came home this afternoon to a clean house, tree and lights up, and pizza. I love my guys for taking care of me. A nice long nap was good medicine. We are in a new kind of normal, but routine is good. Crisis mode is exhausting. Thanks for all the well wishes.

Glad to hear your mom is back home. Being out of the hospital enviroment should greatly increase her healing time. Let alone her emotional stability. One day at a time and prayers that each day shows better improvement for her. So happy your "guys" are taking care of you. Hugs to you all.
