Getting out of the hospital tomorrow!

Mom reported this afternoon that Dad seemed stronger on his short walk from bed to chair today. He will be discharged TOMORROW to Ledgeview Nursing Home for skilled care/therapy.

Mom & Dad's apt. at Ledgeview Living Center is in the very same building!! So Mom won't need a ride to visit Dad anymore. :-) He is hoping to see their cat, Josey. So Mom plans to take her to visit Dad as soon as possible. :-) I hope the nursing home staff allows it. Many health care institutions now recognize the benefits of permitting animals to visit, and some even have resident pets.

Thanks so much for your thoughts and prayers as Mom & Dad adjust to another new situation. Please pray for Dad's therapy . . . that he will be willing to work at it, that his therapists will know how far to push him, and that he and Mom will continue to feel God's peace in their hearts.

This is good news. Returning home, even in a different situation, helps in recovery. I do hope the staff will allow thir cat to visit. Pet therapy is very beneficial. Do you know if there is a Certified Music Practitioner available? Live music played at the bedside can bring such comfort to both the patient, family and caregivers.

I pray for you often.
