My Mother's Room
Its been almost 3 months since my mother has been back to her home. Her room in the nursing home has become her home away from home. She even says she is going home when she is returning to the nursing home from dialysis or the hospital.
She still wants to go back to her real home though. Its not impossible that she will be able to go home, but its not happening too fast.
This week she spent one night and two days in the hospital to have the fistula put in her arm, which is the permanent access to be used for dialysis. She got along well with this, except for the expected soreness in her arm. She won't be able to do as much for a few days while the surgery heals.
Here are a few bright spots in her room.
