Waiting to Leap

23 Feb

The next big step for Mom would be to get out of ICU. And yesterday she was given the green light for that step. However, red tape got in the way. They had a room in the transplant ward for her, but the bed for the room seems to have grown legs and disappeared. So literally, there was no bed for her! By the time we left the hospital last night, the staff was still tracking down a bed. But I am confident that she will be moved by the time Dad goes in this morning.

Dad and I went in together yesterday. I drove on the way home. Dad is getting wore out. I suggested that we take turns going in for a while to give “us all” a break. Dad did agree, but wanted to go in today himself. So I will take a day off and go in tomorrow.

We have been looking for a place to stay in for the month after Mom is discharged but has to come in every day for physio and blood work. When you live outside of the “city”, even though its only a 2  hour drive one way, that would be too hard on Mom to do every day.  Dad spoke with a neighbor and she and her daughter offered the daughter’s apartment for the month. The daughter offered to move in with a friend for the month so we could have the place! What a wonderful thing to do.
