SWMBO (JUDY) IS HOME!

Just one day shy of three weeks since SWMBO fell on our rear patio and broke her femur, I am happy to report that today she came home.

As she reclined on her old familiar bed this afternoon I took her photograph to verify the event.


Well, as I have often said, she's a bit shy about having her picture taken, especially if she doesn't have her "face" (make-up) properly applied.

(I remember once reading a quote from television anchor lady Connie Chung that her husband, Maury Povich, was the only person who had ever seen her without her false eyelashes on.)

After a long wait and much paperwork she finally was released to the outer world this afternoon after a heartfelt goodbye from her case manager Doreen and one of her nurses Anita.


With the aid of a walker, a wheelchair, me and her eldest daughter, the BRD, she made it into our home and the loving greetings of her cats.

Speaking of the BRD she did a truly wonderful thing when she arrived at the hospital today.

She surprised a nurse with a "bouquet" for the staff, made up entirely of candy, and a lovely thank you card for treating SWMBO with such care.



She said flowers are nice but a sugar high is even better!

Thank you from all of us to the doctors, nurses, therapists, orderlies, cleaning staff, cooks and everyone at Mountain Valley Regional Rehabilitation Hospital in Prescott Valley, Arizona.

Wonderful news. I will bet the cats were not the only one so happy that Judy is home.

It's so wonderful to hear Judy is home among her cats and the people she loves, even though it sounds like she received tremendous care.

Glad she is home, now for a quick recovery.

"Home! And happy to be" As nice as that facility was, it can't beat your own bed. Thanks for all the updates. Wishing you both a time of peace and quiet.

Great news. A bit of advice old pal--keep Florence Nightingale in mind, not Nurse Ratchett! Take good care of her. And take care of yourself too.

All hail SWMBO! What a relief, I'm sure, that she is home now.

A candy bouquet? How SWEET!

Silly girl! She doesn't need make-up. She looks lovely just as she is. Good that she's home.

Thoughtful to think of the staff! What a relief to come home!! My hope is that progress is rapid and that good health is restored with little residual pain. Welcome home!!

Good news! The cats must have been thoroughly pleased.

Wonderful news! And that was so thoughtful for the BRD to deliver the goodies. Several years ago, after I left the hospital, we (the wife) sent the nurses that put up with me some "Tiff's Treats"....fresh baked cookies. It was the least we could do. :)

Nurses are only bribed with food treats.

So glad she's home, with cats.
