Home sweet home!!!

I'm going to pick up my SIL Cindy from the hospital today after a very long stay and many many surgeries, procedures, struggles. We didn't think she was going to make it a few times and we really weren't sure if she would ever be able to come back home. We thought she would maybe have to go to a nursing home. The original two day surgery, putting a rod in her leg on April 28 turned into four long months. BUT she is coming home to her apartment. And we are amazed at how well she is doing. She has lost 50 pounds and she's walking really well with a walker. She will always struggle with the bone disease that she has, and I doubt that it will get any better, but for now we're just glad she'll be home in her own bed. She will need some help with things and will need to go to rehab 2-3 days a week, but we'll work it all out. Keep praying for her as she adjusts to trying to be as independent as she can. We are thanking the Lord that she has come this far! There's no place like home....

What wonderful news! I'm sure Cindy will love eating real (non-hospital) food as well as being in her own bed.

I hope she can STAY OUT of the hospital for a very LONG TIME! Hope she is adjusting to life at home again. Welcome Home, Cindy!
