Default Helen has been released

After a bunch of unorganized shanaganges They finally let Helen go home at about 1530 today. Was ready to go about 1200 but then they came with some more pills. Her patassium was low so she had to have 4 doses of that before the release.

Anyway she feels much better now than when she was admitted. 5 days in the hospital with me with her during daylight hours and some darkness she is glad to be home.

Had a scare early this morning. She had another pain in the chest with flashing lights and spots 3 NitroQuicks and it was clear. Hope that don't happen anymore.

I want to thanks everyone who gave us good wishes. They all help Helen and Me.

Great news and I'm thinking of you both! Being home will make a major difference, getting a good nights sleep in the hospital is not easy!

Take care!

Ray, I have been searching back through posts to find out how Helen is......when we last heard, before we left for the Coral, you were still trying to get her to go to a doctor. I am glad that she has had medical care and is on the mend.

Please give each other a hug from Don and I.

Have been watching Helen's progress and am pleased to know that she's home and feeling better. Just don't feel like either of you have to overdo for the holidays - it's so easy to get yourself in a tizzy. One year, for medical reasons, my mother decided to "cancel" Christmas and surprisingly, the "slackers" in the family pulled through and did everything and it was one of the best holidays ever - simply because she was home and we were all so thankful for that. Despite her "I'm going to die any minute" attitude, she went on to live a very full 91 years! This is the woman who had at least 5 "fatal" illnesses a year.

So, take care of yourself and Helen - laugh, sing, sleep when you feel like it, eat when you're hungry and don't worry about anyone else!
