Incredible. I don't think it could have gone better. There were so many things that could have gone wrong...and for once they didn't.
Mom called us four times this morning to tell us she felt like "Queen for a day." Between Brian and her granddaughters flying down for two days just to see her (!) to the landscaping in the backyard and the ceilings being fixed, to the lovely friends who came to say hello, including two who flew in from Nocal for the day...She's reinvigorated and as excited as a kid. Talking about kicking ass at physical therapy and lowering her steroids again. It was just the mental/emotional stimulation she needed.
Nurse Sis declares it a smashing success.
