Today was our best day since 10/18---Cris was released from Mercy SNF and sent home. We are so happy, grateful, giddy, joyful, etc. etc. I worked with the Physical Therapist for the last 2 days proving I could transfer him from bed to wheelchair and back to bed. I passed!! And we got sprung.
The nurse took out his staples before we left. Really cool to watch and didn't hurt a bit.
See how good it looks? As Charlie said--it's a cool Crankenstien scar.
The ride home went well and he commented on how "the colors are so vibrant and beautiful". Hospital rooms are drab--do gettin' around it. Emily met us at home to be my safety net while getting him out of the car and settled. It all went very well.
Score!!! Home at last. He's lost a little weight, no appetite, but that can be fixed soon enough.
