Journal entry by Elizabeth Strootman

Home again, home again... jiggity jig!
We left the hospital about midday ... THANK YOU Methodist Medical Staff!  After her successful surgery, Maureen expects a successful, uneventful recovery.  The greatest challenge will be to remember her limitations.  One of her first impulses was to walk in her garden and she had to be reminded she wasn’t steady on her feet and she should wait for an arm of support.   She did manage to make her way to some of her favorite dahlias and we now have 3 beautiful bouquets to cheer her beyond description.  
She is now curled up under sister, Kate’s beautiful afghan and dozing.  Home💖☺️
