Here’s the latest friends! Abby is FREE! Out of the hospital and into a local apartment for the next 2 1/2 months. But still…
All of the daily encouragements are gone, it’s sunny outside and Abby is doing well enough to get out of here!
The doctors came around this morning and Abby was her smiley and happy self! She did everything they said she had to do yesterday, drank the prescribed amount of fluids, did her walks, took her meds and kept her nausea under control.
I know that she doesn’t’ understand sociology or group dynamics but she may have a future leadership role coming in her future. Today on our required walk around the floor, she passed by her group of doctors that were visiting another patient, caught their eyes, waved and said, “hello everyone!” with a smile on her face. I don’t think it was intentional, that’s just Abby. But, at the same time, that was a brilliant moment that I really think solidified their decision to release her today.
Keep on smiling kid, you are amazing!
Off to go pack up, and take a lot of loads out to the car. It’s amazing how much stuff can be collected in a small room over the course of 4 weeks.
