Safe landing!!!

It's me again, Maggie! I just want to start this post off with a caution!!! This blog contains actual images of mom's back! It isn't too bad, but if you get queezy at the site of wounds etc then I just wanted to give you fair warning!

So mom is home! I got off of school around noon and got there at about 12:40. She has been told no showering or getting her back wet, but I asked if I could use their shower room anyways (since they had a place to sit and a removable shower-head) just to get her hair shampooed. I knew if we didn't get her hair cleaned there that it would probably be a while until we'd be able to again since our shower is upstairs, and she's not go be climbing those death traps!!! ;) So, I was able to talk the nurse into letting me get her cleaned up, and we did, and not a single drop went rolling down her back!!! (yes, I'm patting myself on the shoulder!) 

A very nice young man came to transport mother from her room down to our vehicle. He was very pleasant to speak with and was extremely patient with mom and helpful in getting her situated; for which I was very thankful!

I got mom home, got her prescription filled, and got a decent dinner made too!!! My younger brother was able to bring my bed downstairs so that I can sleep with mom and also so she doesn't have to take those stairs up! 

The cat is so happy to have mom back home...he is sleeping at her feet as I type! :)

Here are some pictures, and as I said above there are some of her wound, so consider yourself forewarned! Thank you all again for your love, support, and prayers! They're greatly appreciated!
