Hi . . . I’m finally home!

It’s Lilac Tree and I came home yesterday to my new bed and pillows . . . And oh what a relief it is!  I have made a note to write a thesis on hospital beds!  I am using my daughter’s iPad, so please ignore any gross errors in my typing!

 

First I want to thank all of you for being so kind and gracious to her on her efforts to keep you up to date.  I read them all, as she also did, and she thinks you are wonderful, caring folks and so do I.  Thank you so much! I wish I could answer each and every one of you, but it is my writing arm that was broken, and my hip, as you know.

 

I am not going to attempt filling you in on all the details right now, but I will say it was an “experience” I do not want to repeat in my remaining lifetime. 

 

I am am walking with a walker, but unfortunately my lumbar spine took most of the punishment from PT at the rehab, so I’m still pretty uncomfortable.  I plan to wait perhaps a week before I resume PT at home.

 

My girls were amazing throughout this ordeal, I think it was worse for them than it was for me.  And of course my youngest who kept you up to date was . . .  Well, there are no words to describe her efforts to take care of things.  I love them all so much.  It’s times like these when one realizes how much she is loved and how lucky she is.

 

Thank you all so much again for your caring and encouraging words, my wonderful cyber friends.  I will write again soon.

Hi @LilacTree .... I'm so happy to hear you are home!! I've tried to keep up with the update on your progress. You are so blessed to have such wonderful girls looking after you and your needs. They are angels! I do pray for your continued progress. Heart

 

Falls are so dangerous. I've had 2 myself ... nothing compared to yours. The last one, 2 1/2 years ago, has left me with chronic  daily back pain and a couple of messed up discs. I warn my DH constantly to be cautious and do not do something silly and fall. We don't have children we can call on. We just don't bounce back like when we were young... as you well know.

 

This news has really made my day! Continued healing and joyous spirit! HeartHeart (((Gentle Hugs)))

Glad you are doing better, and will add that this might help your girls take heed of the things that matter. Everything works better when all are pulling in the same direction.
