Joyce’s Story

Site created on January 5, 2020

There are so many people that love mom that I couldn't keep up with texts, emails and phone calls. I decided this was the best way to keep everyone updated in one place.

Journal entry by Shelly Buchanan

Mom has been home over 24 hours now. 

She sleeps on her couch for the time being until her bed hand rail arrives tomorrow. She is comfortable there as well so is happy sleeping there. 

She is eating, walking around, and has been sleeping a lot.

She is a little overdone with stimulation from the hospital so I've let her have some peace and quiet. She has been a good patient so far, but she is so used to being independent and strong (and a wee bit stubborn!) so she made herself breakfast. I've been cleaning up, making sure she has her meds and get her set up and comfortable because she still hasn't called me to ask for anything and I know she won't. 

All in all, doing well and I don't need any babysitters yet!
