Marian''s return home was described by Lynn as "making the process of buying a car look easy'. It took 9 hours after the doctor wrote the discharge orders to the point that the hospital nursing staff got around to it. And then only with some urging from Lynn, our social worker daughter! To be honest, the floor had 6 discharges yesterday and 8 new admissions, so we understand their pressure . The 40 minute trip home was uneventful, the new meds were waiting at the pharmacy and Marian had a very restful night.
This morning she ate a good breakfast of scrambled egg and toast, walked around the apartment, read her Bible selections for the day, and then went back to bed. She is getting in and out of our very tall bed quite easily, with a little assist from Jim. Amazingly she is feeling no pain. Lynn will be leaving soon for the airport with our longtime friend Ray Cooper. She has been invaluable to us, bringing cheer as well as buying trips to find all sorts of things new to us. Thank you Lynn!
