No place like home

The Wizard of OzDorothy in “The Wizard of Oz” was right. There really is no place like home, especially after almost 3 months of hospital and rehab stays.

As Dad taught me, I am not concentrating on how far I have to go to restore energy, but how far I have come. I have home physical therapy, etc. using a walker for now.

I appreciate all the wonderful messages and responses to my notice of being home and I apologize for not answering individually. Between workmen coming to see about replacing tub with a walk-in shower, the installation of a captioned phone, and numerous visits by professionals, time gets filled. Big job now is accomplishing what needs to be done between naps and according to energy level.

Next job is reducing the mountain of paperwork cluttering my desk.

God has been with me every step of the way and continues to bless. Thanks to my niece Julie and two close friends who spent hours researching programs and helpers (professional and caring friends and neighbors) I am well looked after. Working on developing patience. GRIN.

Writing? This is the most I have done.  I have a revised book in the computer that was edited by a friend last November. Not yet ready to finish it.

Thanks again, everyone.
