Dianne's discharge date from the hospital has been set for one week away. We both think that is an excellent decision. She feels she needs a little more time to build her strength and mobility. She is short of breath today although doctor and nurses can see nothing wrong. (Well, her left lung is still a little too quiet).. She will be able to continue to use the hospital's physical rehab program as an outpatient. This is also a very welcome opportunity. She is still scared, still talking about "how much trouble she is going to be;" but I am very encouraged and optimistic. I think this episode witll turn out to have been a blessing in disguise, another chance for us to get it right. Believe me, I will be far more alert and conscientious this time around.
