Home Again, and All Is Well

Thank you for all your kind words and prayers.
Mom was sent home last Friday. She is sleeping and eating better at home than she was in the hospital.
She had a cracked rib, and her pelvis was cracked in 5 places. And a sprained ankle that healed on its own, since she was already taking a lot of painkillers.
Mom is alone in the house now, but has care workers coming in every day for several weeks, and my sister will join her for lunch each day.
She is using a walker to get around (I am soooo glad that the bedroom is on the main floor), the kind with a seat on it. She is using the seat to carry stuff, rather than to sit on.
Wednesday, while I made dinner, she watered all the house plants.
And now I am going to have ice cream for dinner and veg in front of the tube.
I promise new photos tomorrow!!

I am so sorry about your Mom but it sounds like she is on the road to recovery. Sending prayers and healing thoughts her way.

I'm so glad your mom is doing so well. You and your family have been in my thoughts and prayers - and will continue to be so.

Love and Peace to you.
