We're home

DS was released from the hospital last night. He is far from well, but is stable and we have all the equipment here that they do at the hospital. Well, except for one. A suction machine is to be delivered sometime today - until now we have successfully avoided using that particular piece.

The diagnosis was bacterial pneumonia and atelectasis. Pretty standard stuff for him that can quickly wreak havoc on his compromised system. He was in isolation at the hospital because of all the flu and viruses in that place. I don't know who is happier to be home - him or me.

I've spent this morning trying to catch up in between his treatments. I did run out and buy some groceries. I am craving real food after a few days of hospital fast food. Yuck.

Now if I could only remember what day it is - it feels like Monday. Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised when Friday arrives sooner than I expect!


PS My Dad has recovered and is doing great! Thank you for all the concern for both of my guys!


  1. I'm just catching up - you've sure had your hands full. It sounds like both of your fellas have taken a turn for the better and it's wonderful that you can looks after DS's needs at home. Yup, there's no place like home. I hope both keep improving and that the worst is over.

  2. So glad to hear they're both improving. And congratulations on getting your debt under 50k. May 2018 be the wonderful year you deserve.
