I get out of hospital today!
Tuesday, December 03, 2013
Today is December 3rd and I get out of the inpatient hospital in a few hours. It’s almost 6:30 am now. Vision is still kind of messed up and right side kind of weak and this is slow typing but I’m making some progress. This hospital is in Dallas, about 40 minutes from my son’s home in Fort Worth which is better than what I had for visiting when I was in Phoenix to get medically stabilized. At his house I will do a day program to help me regain more skills which is about 10 minutes from my son’s house. I’m looking forward to it. My son and dil have room for me and between them and my son’s mil they are going to make sure I get there. I really am blessed to have this help in a place where there is the type of help I need.
I have 5 grown kids, and they are divided on the care I’m getting. My 2 grown daughters and their grandkids in Silver City NM are upset I’m not coming back and mad at my oldest son because I’m over here. But they actually want me to support them and really don’t have any idea what I need right now or that resources are not available anywhere around there to do the best they can for me. My youngest son, had gotten his own place over there and I think he has mixed feelings. My middle son, in Oklahoma, and my brother and his family in Sacramento are really happy I’m out of there and over here. My oldest son and family, here, are also really happy. Sometimes we don’t realize what we live with until we are out of it.
I know my fitbit I was wearing when this happened is in the stuff they now have at the Fort Worth house, along with the charger, so once I get to their house I’m going to charge it and start wearing it again. I know I won’t rack up the miles and floors I did, but will look forward to tracking my progress and recovery. Still on a walker right now but hopefully within a month or two will be off that. Fort Worth doesn’t have hill, which I’m not quite ready to climb anyway, but there is a flight of steps in his house I will be working on. We’ve been working on stairs in therepy here and in outpatient therapy. Life is good!
