Val was discharged from the hospital early afternoon. Baine and Denise helped Dad and Val with the bags and oxygen and drove together to Waterbury, VT. In Waterbury Dad and Val took their own car the rest of the way to Barre. Lea and Rudy went up to the house for a short visit to see Val. Val's right leg is swollen from the IV fluids and is painful. She ate a little crackers and cheese with her favorite tomato soup for dinner. She was resting comfortably with four in the bed this evening ( Dad, Fuller man, Diamond the cat, and her) all one happy family. It is peaceful to know Val is home safely from the hospital with no signs of infection from the chest tube. She is on 2% oxygen again. Her home nurse will visit Monday and Wednesday this week to prepare her for chemo on Friday. Nightie nite to Val! Sleep well back in your own bed.
Love and prayers to Val always.......Salynn
