Going Home Tomorrow Evening

Two weeks is a long time to be away from home. I miss everyone at my house plus my sewing machine, which is back from the hospital.

Vicky is definitely doing better. Yesterday she walked four times. She gets up to go to the bathroom and is eating a small amount at each meal. The doctor still doesn't want her to eat much.

Her pain pump is gone; she's on Vicodin. I think she misses the pump because it gave her immediate relief. Vicodin takes about an hour to kick in. The surgeon will see her today.

Physical therapy thinks she is strong enough to be at home. That was a huge relief; no transitional care.

It's rainy and windy here today. We might even get some thunder and lightening; I love them both.
