surgery 2/1/08
Busted her out of rehab early last Sunday and wow what an improvement. Her bed sores are improving and the visiting nurse said they should be better in about 2 weeks. Today she has used the cane all day and not the walker and went upstairs and took a shower! I guess everyone is right the first 1 - 3 weeks are the hardest. That and remembering the hip precautions can be hard not only for an 80 yr old but for everyone in general. She only took percocets right after surgery and has only taken tylenol a couple times since she has been home. I feel a lot less anxious. She still has a little bit of swelling but it is getting better.

Bravo, this sounds to be a big improvement from the past posts and how wonderful your Mom. As the loving child and supporter, it is good that your mind can rest and that you are seeing these positive improvements. I am rather new hear, however I keep reading especially posts from Josephine and it appears this site gives support in time of need, reminds us to have faith and patience and gives us the knowledge from a person who knows alot about this type of medical theatre. All the best to you and your Mom.
