MRS. G IS HOME FROM THE HOSPITAL

Mrs. G's total hip replacement surgery went great. Dr. Walker did a fabulous job and may I say to the folks at Mother Francis Hospital thank you for all of your careful care. 

She had her surgery Tuesday with rehab  each day. I was her "coach" for the rehab. She was released from the hospital Friday at noon. The first thing she wanted was nachos and a cheese enchilada from Taco Bell. We drove through the drive thru and then came home.

Friday night was a rough night for her. She had her meds but was up every few hours. I didn't get much sleep and neither did she. In fact you will see a pic of me at the top taken this morning. Ha!!

I cancelled my meetings this week end to stay with her and hopefully she will still want me around after all of my "coaching" is completed. The Texas Home Health Care Director came by today to see Mrs. G and to fill out a zillion papers. They will start on Monday with their part of the rehab. She has to give herself shots to prevent infection and prevent potential blood clots. 

Thank you to all of you who have expressed your love and prayers. She is doing as well as can be expected. I will keep you updated! GOTTA LOVE FAMILY!
