I was at the hospital all morning, hoping to catch up with Mama’s doctor — and when he finally came in, he said that she can go home.
Today, if they can get all the arrangements in place.
She will need an oral antibiotic for a few more days, but all cultures, blood and urine, are negative and he thinks she is good to go! They are arranging “in home” physical therapy, but at least she will be with family in somewhat familiar surroundings.
She is going to come to our house for now. Daniel and I are going away over Mother’s Day weekend, Lord Willing, so this gives us a few weeks to see how things are going and maybe by then she will be able to be back at her own little house. (With some security measures in place, to be certain!)
Thanks for all the prayers, visits, cards, care and concern. She has a ways to go yet, and we feel a need for your continued interest. Don’t hesitate to call. I’ve been so glad to talk to those of you who have called. Thanks again!
And for those of you who may have worried about me after my last post — I’m sorry if I caused undo alarm. Sometimes I am feeling something intently and God ministers to my heart in a specific way, and I share all about it and then go away and don’t come back until evening and realize that things may have sounded more intense than I realized or intended. I hope people don’t hesitate to call or visit when Mama is here. It’s a wonderful privilege to have her with us.
