Slice of Life Story Challenge
Slice 1 of 31
As life goes, there are always things to be thankful for and celebrate especially one day at a time! For this Saturday, I am especially grateful...after a ten day hospital stay and a month of rehab at the nursing home, my mom got her wish and went home. I am so glad she's home for so many reasons but most of all I think my dad needed her company.
When she entered the hospital back in January, the whole family was scared! We all worried that the diverticulitis flare up would lead us down the road to surgery. Thankfully, her condition was different this time around and the doctors treated her with IV antibiotics and the problem took care of itself.
There are still other problems looming as many people who worked with her noticed her memory issues. One of the doctors she worked with also diagnosed her with dementia. In the near future, we are taking her to a geriatrician to get more specifics on what stage she's in and things we all need to do to help my dad as he deals with her needs on a regular basis...
So while I am happy that she's home, I worry about the journey ahead of us. I don't know what the future holds, but I will try my best to enjoy all of her-
I hope to write every day for the Slice of Life Challenge. Thank you to the Two Writing Teachers for hosting this challenge. Hope you join in the learning and grow as a writer.
