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!

    Hope things are still working out well for you and you are making progress. So happy you have a son and DIL to help out. You are definitely in the right place. Don't let the others make you feel guilty about not returning to them. You need to take care of yourself and put yourself first for a change! My prayers are with you.

    Oh dear, I have been here only sporadically for the last couple of months and had no idea what all you have been through until today. Please know that you are in my thoughts and I'm praying for your complete recovery. I have so enjoyed your blogs and sharing your hikes with you here on Spark and I hope and pray you will be back out there in time doing what you love. Glad you are doing better and moving forward. Hugs to you.

    I am so happy to hear you are being released from the hospital. My thoughts are with you and I am so happy to hear you are with your son and family and they will take care of you instead of you taking care of everyone else. Its time to focus on you for a while.

    I am so glad to hear that things are looking up! It is time for you to work on YOU and the daughters will just have to learn how to stand on their own. They have to grow up sometime. This is the time! When you get the chance, send your son's address (or have him send it to me on FB).

    And I am glad the Fitbit turned up!

    Hugs and prayers,

    I'm so happy that you are progressing so well. You are in the right location to regain your health and have the right attitude to do it.

    I am thrilled for you that you are getting out today and I am thrilled that you will be at your son's house. Sorry but I think you daughter's in NM are not worthy of you and I think they just think about themselves, not even their children, just themselves. I'm sure you are getting great help where you are because the Dallas/Ft. Worth area has wonderful medical help.

    Take care of yourself! You must do for you!

    Much love, prayers and thoughts!
