You know, after a week like this week, and a day like yesterday, today was a bit of an oasis. The cardiothoracic surgeon who yesterday, was pretty convinced my mom would have a significant amount of fluid back around her heart, today said that it really wasn’t that bad. In fact, instead of having another surgical procedure tomorrow, Mom is being released to go home.
There are still lots of tests to come, all of which are outpatient, and she still has cancer, but we’re very excited that she can go home Sunday. She’s already told Dad what she wants for dinner. The food at the hospital has been predictably bad, so the fact that she’s talking about food is a good thing. She’s lost so much weight, just holding food in her hand makes a difference on the scale.
So, today was a good day. We’re not out of the woods, but we’ll enjoy the victory of at least being out of the hospital for now.
Thanks again for your prayers and words of comfort and support!
