Mom's home

Well, for someone the medics had pretty much given up on, my Mom is making a great recovery. We brought her home this afternoon. Along with her we're getting some more gadgetry to make her care easier--this time it's a "crane", which will make getting her in and out of bed much simpler.

I'd like to thank everyone for their kind wishes.

My Mom will never be 100%--the stroke 3 years ago saw to that, and each successive medical problem has taken away a bit more of her "self". She faces another issue brought to light during this stay in the hospital--a "mass" in one of her breasts. A biopsy has been done and we're waiting for the results. However, there won't be much that can be done if it's the big "C"--she's far too frail for any radical surgery, and too weak to withstand chemotherapy.

So we're all going to do our best to take care of her, come-what-may. Each day will be a gift and we'll take each one as it comes.
