Tuesday, January 12, 2010!

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.
