This is such good news that I couldn’t wait to share it. In the back of my mind, I was praying that Sandra would be able to be home by Christmas. Spending her birthday and Thanksgiving in hospital was bad enough but I really wanted her home for Christmas. So the news was amazing!
She still will have much rehabilitation and recuperation time, but at least she can be at home with her children. Mom will have to administer her twice-daily shots of blood thinner and Sandra will have to travel daily for therapy and/or testing. But still, how wonderful!
The experience of coming home will be bittersweet, however. It certainly will increase her sadness to be coming home without Glen there. She is not looking forward to that at all. But mom and I will be there and on Friday her cousin Dena and family will be coming to stay with her for a few days. I am hoping the distraction of having family and friends around will lighten her anxiety and depression to some degree and ease the transition.
Thank you for your prayers for they surely have worked.
