Discharge redux

Denise is home again! Though the discharge time was 9am, it took a while to get everything ironed out (meds questions, discharging doctor's signature, etc.). We signed the discharge papers at 1:05pm, the wheelchair guy came about an hour later, and we were off! We just walked/rolled in the door about fifteen minutes ago! Later this afternoon a home care nurse is coming to check on Denise, which sets my mind at ease.
The whole drive home in the rain, she was thinking of restaurants along the way that she might like to eat at for dinner. She's not eating much, but that she WANTS to eat is a good thing! The kids are with a friend today & overnight so things are calm & quite. My cousin (webmaster, guest map guy, email list guy, real good cook) is here catering to our every whim and unreasonable demand.
Keep pulling for Denise this weekend so that things go 200% better than they did last weekend.
It's been a long 5 1/2 months. Now I'm gonna go snuggle with my wife! :O)

don't forget to remind her to look at the kitchen cabinets. Might make her stick around longer this time. You can tell her I sid that Phil. We are praying for the completion of this miraculous recovery to happen soon. We love you.

Hold Denise close, Phil. God has been doing that all this time and now it is your time to snuggle.

I want to compliment and thank all of the many folks who are right there with help for you and your family. I can't think of a better and more organized support system than the one you have. God has been amazing throughout all of this, seeing to your every need. A special blessing to the family who has Gracie and Jacob for an "over night". You deserve this time alone...together. Isn't God good!

God is SOOOOO good! I, too, am so humbled by the outpouring of love and support, not only the prayer warriors, but those who have come along side and provided physically everything you have needed. These spiritual warriors are being used of God in a BIG way!!! Those of us who are separated by the miles will continue to do the only thing we can--PRAY! I am praising God today that Denise is home! He has brought her a LONG way!! Enjoy this quiet and normal night together! After all these months, there is alot to be said for normal!
