Mom comes home today

*happy dance*

Mom has made remarkable progress and Dad's on his way to pick her up at the rehab center. Today I'll stay with her and play steppinfetchit, doing things around the house to make it a little more walker-friendly. Hopefully we can array things for easy access and have things nice and comfy for her.

She's progressed beautifully in her recovery, and I know every day she has greater ease of movement. I do see the necessity of having to be away sometimes, especially when recovering from a major surgery like this, but I think there's just got to be a little lift, a boost which comes of being in your own little nest.

Welcome home, Mom.

*snicker* Steppinfetchit. That's great. *snicker*

Speaking as one who's rehabbed, been released, spent 9 weeks living with the folks for further recovery (120+-year-old houses are not conducive to recovery), and then finally getting home...yes, there is a MAJOR boost being back in your own space with your own stuff.
