We’re Getting There!

with 2 comments

Well, we’re still here in the hospital.  We’re trying to coordinate her release – but there are so many things that have to be arranged that we’re kind of pulling our hair out.  We need a shower bench so we can bathe her at home.  We need a transfer slide board so we can transfer her from the wheelchair into her bed and into the car for doctor’s appointments, and we need a rolling commode that can be rolled over the toilet.

We are trying to arrange a special transport home for her so she can ride in her wheelchair rather than having to transfer between the wheelchair and car seat.

Her doctor ordered some home nursing and physical/occupational therapy so she can get back to her old self within a few weeks.  As the Decadron gets out of her system, she’ll be able to do more and more – until she’s 100% again.

She’s had her lunch and she’s just awaiting her chariot so we can go home.

I’ll let you know when she’s home.

  1. Bless your heart Tracey. I know it must be frustrating trying to coordinate the trip home. Glad to hear that is still the plan and that there were no more complications overnight. Hopefully by the time you read this you are reading it from the comfort of your mother’s home or your own. As hard as it is for the patient it is also very stressful for the family trying to “be there” and help wherever needed. Please know that I am praying not only for Julia but for all you who are providing hands on support. With love & prayers, Elaine
