She's home! And finally, I got to see the New Orleans Saints play on TV!

I took this photo at the Grand Central Bowl last March.
Monday we knew about 11 a.m. or so that she could go home, but it took until about 2:30 p.m. to get outta there! Not that they didn't do a great job taking care of her, but y'all know how just plain tired it makes everyone when someone is hospitalized. We were so ready to go that we completely forgot a couple of things. Leland's going there tomorrow to get them. He and Lamont are coming over to the apartment around 2 p.m. to check on her and to vacuum the rugs and run the Swiffer over the floor--I'll be at work.

Mama's on home oxygen when exerting herself which right now will be pretty much all of the time that she's awake--her oxygen saturation level needs the home oxygen to be at a good level for her. She's got an appointment in a month with both the cardiologist and the lung doctor. Before those two she has an appointment with her regular doctor and the eye doctor. Thank goodness Lamont and Leland can help out with those.

Once again, thanks to everyone for your good wishes and prayers!

I'll go back to the vacation fun soon as I get rested up a bit.

Who dat beat the stew out of New England?
All I got to see was the 4th quarter--too much going on around here, fixing supper, walking to Walgreen's to pick up the prescriptions, listening to the home oxygen instructions, washing the dishes.

Y'all notice Mama's got on her Mississippi State sweatshirt--that's in honor of their Egg Bowl victory. I know I already mentioned it, but I can't help myself, I'm still so tickled about that score, 41-27!
