My mom's going home in an hour!!!!! We're so happy!
There are only three things I'll miss about the hospital:
1. The molasses ginger cookies from Macrina Bakery.
2. The view of Mt. Rainier, the Olympics, and the city skyline.
3. The awesome RN's and CNA's--especially Premilla, who learned early in the week how much I rely on coffee, and subsequently found me whenever I was at the hospital (even when she wasn't assigned to our floor!) and brought me coffee and snacks.
As soon as we pack up and get my mom's IV out, we'll head home! My mom is feeling much better now. Her pain and nausea are under control, and she's walking without a walker.
Her next trip to the hospital will be on Tuesday to learn about chemotherapy and to get her staples removed.
Good job tackling the first obstacle, Mom! We're so proud of you!
