My Mom was sent home today from the hospital.  We thought she would need surgery for her carotid artery, but
the consulting surgeon said she didn't need it.     *yay* 

I hope she doesn't continue to be combative about following orders - taking her home today, the nurse told me she needs
to start some meds tonight.  My Mom says, oh no - I'll go tomorrow.     I grabbed the prescription sheet & left before she
had a chance to stop me...... ahhhhh       Dr. Leigh will be going over soon with her meds & a blood pressure monitor we bought.

I'm sure stress played a big part - & hopefully,  I can help her from getting too stressed

She was very happy to see her feline support sytem -
Upon coming home - Jimmy greeted us

So glad she was able to come home. Hopefully she will realize she needs to follow her doctor's advice and will continue to improve.

It is just that adjustment we all have to make sometimes, accepting that someone else knows what is needed better than we do. You know as well as anyone how stressful that can be to have to rely on other's judgements about something so personal as one's health and consequent lifestyle.

Best wishes to you all!
