Homeward Bound

While we have no intention of getting lost in the woods, we are planning to head toward home this afternoon. Will has been stable for the last 24 hours so all looks good.

We have been really blessed while here. While the first 24 hours was challenging, we had great nurses, nursing students, and the doctors were able to communicate effectively which is incredibly helpful. They even called Dr Teasley who is at a conference to discuss a medication change they wanted to make. I didn't anticipate that it would go so smoothly, but they really were fabulous.

We also learned valuable lessons. Instant oatmeal in the hospital bag is a lifesaver for Mom, coffee's benefits are not to be underestimated, and a private room makes the time much more manageable. Oh, and recliners are not meant for sleeping! :)

Thank you for the emails and phone calls over the last few days!
