Ellen came home from the hospital yesterday. She, and Luke, and the little dogs are all happier with her here.
The people at Gunnison Valley Hospital were wonderful and supportive and we appreciate them very much. But Ellen is happy to be sitting in her south facing window looking out at the green grass and the blue sky.
She is still very ill, and feels far from good, but she is surrounded by as much love as we know how to give her.
And we are supported by the kind nurses of Home Health, who make it possible for her to be here.
And we are having to learn new equipment, new procedures, and how to do more for ourselves — from taking glucose readings to operating the pump that gives Ellen her nutrition. We have boxes of medical equipment all over the house, and a lot of it is new to us and we are having to learn fast.
Keep us in your hearts please. And we will keep you in ours.
