Today actually went a little better than yesterday, or the day before, but it all just accumulates and hangs on you. Soon, we'll have things settled and under control.
The quick version (ha! get it? Quck Grits!) is that they did the lower scope today and mom looks good, just some diverticulosis. Nothing they can do about that. We're getting the paperwork handled to get her out to The Glen for some inpatient rehab to build her strength back up and rehab those sore muscles from her fall last week. Her best friend is out there and they are both kind of looking forward to being together! I just got off the phone with said friend who is tickled to learn mom is coming out there; she said, "We're going to parrrttyy!!" Heh!
Lifelong friends are great!
Anyway, I've been sitting and talking to doctors and social workers and nurses and handling paperwork and business matters all day, but there's a little glimmer at the end of the tunnel.
So today, I'm a grit.
