Mom Is Home...!
Yesterday about 3:00 P.M. I got a call from Mom at the hospital, saying she was being released!
I had just been there in the morning and at that time, she didn't know when she would be released! She was feeling fine and getting around on her own pretty good! The problem was that for the last two days, her white count had been climbing and no one knew why!
A blood specialist had been called in to check things out, and when she came back with the test results...she said that the white count was going up because of the steroids the doctors had put Mom on to help fight her illness.
So now she's home. She's happy, her cat's happy, I'm happy...the main thing is that she is feeling OK, just tired!
One week yesterday, she went in the hospital. A week in the hospital, away from home, is enough to make anyone tired!
Her thanks (and mine) go out to everyone that sent prayers and good thoughts her way! I know in my heart that it made a BIG difference in her getting better so quickly! At Mom's age, any illness like pneumonia can be very, very serious! Mom knows that and I know that! We accept it as part of the life cycle, so we do what we can to make the best of things while we can!
Folks, we all need to learn to live each and every day just like it was the last one we had left to be with our loved ones! You know why? Because someday, maybe someday soon...it WILL be!
Peace and love from the Hermit, my friends! Coffee's on me!
