Yesterday's post-op followup appointment for my mother was happily quite successful, exceeding everyone's expectations. My aunts are departing this morning. It looks like my mother will be going home early next week. So everyone gets their life and health back rather soon, with just the smallest bit of luck.

Onward, and excelsior.

Luck to you! When things settle down, I'll be interested in your thoughts on becoming caregiver, after being cared for. My Mom is laid up in the hospital with a broken leg. Poor thing.

Something I'll probably post about, once things settle down a bit more. Though I'll have to be careful, as while I can speak freely about my own health issues, I need to be protective of my mother's privacy.

Im not much worried about privacy actually, and am here to tell you Jay is a good high quality caregiver. He is attentive without hovering. I have had a good recuperation time in his house, and am super grateful that he has plenty of room for me to wiggle around in his lifespace for a while.

We're so glad you're doing fine. :) As for the wiggling, well, that may be too much information.

I'm glad to hear that the followup news was so good! I hope her recovery stays on track, so all and sundry can get back to a semblance of normal soon.
