Mom is home - Mom is Home - Mom is Home !!!!

All day yesterday the doctors were trying to work out which would be best - to leave mom in hospital for another week, the send her to a nursing home or the have home nursing. There was these 'pro's and con's things' which each and just when they thought they had it sorted it they would change their minds. The problem is Mom has to be on a lot of medications and one of them is 24/7. After many phone calls they finally found out they could hook her up to a pump that would give her that at home, so that is what they ended up doing - sending her home. She has a nurse comes twice a day to do all her medicines and they are teaching Dad how to do it. She has been very tired today and sleeping a lot but I am so happy to have her home. She stills smells funny but I have let her have a couple of pats. Look at the cool photo my dad took, this snow drift is on our back yard and is nearly 6 foot high!!!!



  1. Reilly! I actually yelped in happiness when I read your blog title today! And I'm not even a dog! My husband looked over at me and said "WHAT?!" I told him Reilly's Mom is home and he smiled cause he knows how worried Katie and I have been. Sounds like it's still a long road for your Mom though, so make sure you are extra gentle with her OK? And let her have as many pats as she needs, that's the best medicine!

    We're really happy for you all!

  2. Welcome home Mom! We are so happy you are home - Reilly has missed you so much.
    It sounds as though you still need lots of care and we are delighted that can be given at home.
    There is no place better!
    Take care and get well - we have all mmissed you so much.
