Home so soon?

Wow, at 10:30 this morning, I was busily trying to cram in some work on a big presentation I have to give on Thursday. The phone rang, and it was Rick saying he was going to be discharged. I said I'd plan to be there around noon. Then, at 11, he called back to say they wanted me to come get him. Well, we got him in the car (no small feat) and into the house (another not-small feat). I fed him some lunch and got him all doped up for the afternoon. He's been sawing logs for the last hour or so. I took the opportunity to get some shopping done. Phew!

So, no shower for 3 more days. No driving for 3 weeks and no "work" for 6 weeks. I'm pretty sure he'll be working from home this week. But, he can take his time. They can wait until he's ready.

I'm glad he's home. I missed him the last couple nights. It's going to be a busy time!

did the OT teach him how to sit down/stand up/get into the car, etc? if not, ping me -- I had lots of practice with my dad.

Well, that's good; there's nothing like sleep in your own bed. (Remind me to tell you, someday, about my wicked times with a long-leg cast!)

We need pix of Rick sawing logs in his own bed.

Welcome home, Rick - be all better soon.

Oh my goodness! I just checked your blog and saw what happened! Praying for a speedy recovery. It sounds like Rick is a determined patient. ;)
