After 2 weeks in the hospital, my mom is well enough to return home today! She’s feeling a lot better, everyone says she looks a lot better, and she sounds a lot better too. Her lungs weren’t ‘springing back’ as fast as they would’ve liked after they drained all the excess fluid away from her lungs. They did a lot of testing and discovered 2 types of bacteria in her blood this past week which they are doing testing on. They think it was bacteria from pneumonia that spread into her blood. They collected samples and are waiting for them to grow in a petrie dish until they know for sure what kind of bacteria it is.
Meanwhile, she’ll have to take an IV at home every day for 1 month. Luckily it’s only for 1 month. I am glad I’ll be returning to Rochester to be with my family after this trip.
