It's been a while, but Mom is finally getting out of rehab tomorrow. I know she is ready to come home.
It has been an interesting experience, that's for sure. Mom has had some health issues while there, one is her continuing cough. She also came down with another case of pneumonia. That was the main reason for the extension.
One of her main complaints while staying there was not being able to get a good night's sleep. That is a problem for many people when they get used to their own bed and their own noise level as well. Hard to rest well in a place that is always noisy and full of people.
For the most part, the staff was helpful and seemed to be concerned for the patients. I don't know how much they concentrated on Mom's strength, but I reckon we'll find out. That was the main reason for putting her in rehab.
Anyway, I know she'll be glad to be back home. The other issues we will work out as they show up. Tuesday I go back to V.A. for a follow-up with the cardio doc. That should be interesting, to say the least!
So...that's the latest update from the homefront. Sorry about not giving a more regular report, but I wanted to wait until I actually had some news for ya. At least it's mostly good news this time, right?
Coffee out on the patio this morning.
