If yesterday was the valley, today was the mountain top on this journey. Shelley was released from the hospital this morning, and tolerated the three hour trip home quite nicely. When I talked to them a few minutes ago, Shelley was sitting on the couch talking to her friend Juli, who has arrived to help out. Juli brought Lynette home also. Shelley also had a nice bath, and they attempted to deal with her hair. She spent the last week in a hospital, not a spa or a salon! The big incision, the tangles, the greasy ointments, the days of lying in bed all took their toll, but her hairdressers were working on it. Pain pills and naps are still important features of life, but really everything seems to be going as it should.
I fear I may soon be losing my position as guest blogger, but as Shelley says, it is harder to think about blogging and computer work when you have sore eyes. I think you will very soon be seeing a post from Shelley herself, though.
Someone has set up a "Google Calendar" for any who wish to help in any way, with meals, housework, companionship, whatever your talent is! I'll paste the link below. I tried it myself and got it to work, which is a minor miracle considering my limited computer skills. So, I'm hoping it will work for anyone else who wants to access it.
