The hospital released mom right before lunch so she has been home since about 1:00 p.m. and doing fine. She has a few follow up appointments next week with the pulmonary doctor and then a reschedule with the surgeon who put the port in her chest as she missed that follow up yesterday.
She is happy to be home! Thanks to everyone for the well-wishes and prayers! Her lungs are both expanded and the Physician Assistant said this morning that there is no detection of pneumothorax issues from what they could see on the x-ray.
Mom is a little fatigued but overall feeling good and pain-free. I'll be keeping an eye on her, and Scotty is planning on helping her out in the next few days as well. Mom also has some great neighbors who will be keeping their eye out - so mom knows she has to behave herself!
