Dear friends, I brought Barb home today from the hospital. We both are very pleased to be home. As you may know she fell breaking her right shoulder and right hip. The hip requiried surgery to replace the Ball into the socket.
Everything at the hospital and rehab went well except the Meds handling was terrible. Now that she's home we'll get that straightened out. Jock Doc and Barb

Welcome home Jackdoc and Barb! I'm sure it's a relief and I hope you have a well deserved REST now that you're home! Happy Holidays!

Welcome home and I am glad things straightened out for you. It was certainly a rough six weeks but you made it! It will be so nice to be home for the Holidays.

Please get as many calories in her as possible. My husband dropped to 108 lbs from about 150. He currently weighs about 118. I have fed him milkshakes which he is able to consume. I know that this disease also affects swallowing. Does Barb have this issue? I also watch him and I know if I leave the room he will dispose of his meal. I need to be constantly encouraging and doing what ever is needed to get him to take in nourishment. Hang in there.
