Back Home

My mom was discharged from the hospital today. Her discharge diagnoses included chest pain, acute CHF, acute lower UTI, and dependent edema. For the 4 days that she was in the hospital, I could not visit her. She drove herself home from the hospital, and as she walked through the door, she was looking much better than the days leading up to the hospitalization. Her legs and ankles are still swollen though.

When my mom got home, she rested a bit then went to the store to buy some water because we were out of bottled water.
