Fun times in familial medical land, part 4: mom is back home

Hey gang,

My mother returned home from what was a 32-day stint in the hospital and then rehabilitation approximately a week-and-a-half ago.

The aunt and I have been adjusting to having mom back home, and we’ve been very busy with her post-stay follow-up care (there’s quite a bit of it to help reduce hospital and rehabilitation facility recidivism).

Mom came back with a walker, which we are learning to accommodate, and we’re having “grab bars” installed in the restroom and are ensuring that mom gets some physical and occupational therapy to learn how to move around in a safer manner.

As soon as I can take a breath and get mom’s care sorted out, I’ll get back to work. I miss the work and I miss the community of readers on the blog, FB and Twitter, and I hope all of you are doing well.
