gettin' outta here!!!!

guess who's going home???
well, i guess technically not HOME but outta the hospital and on to my mom's house to continue his recovery!!
we've been at the lake since courtney's birthday party and came home last night. i went up to the hospital right away for a visit and was told that grandpa was being discharged tomorrow....TODAY!!!!
do you think he looks happy with this news??

all the arrangements have been made and i'm sure there will be a few things that need to be ironed out along the way, but this is a MAJOR step for us all!
home care had an electronic hospital bed for grandpa delivered to mom's house this morning, and a wheelchair is coming....already got the walker and bathroom neccessities for him and then i suppose arrangements with home care workers will fall into place soon enough!!!
his stay at mom's will be indefinate as he still has lots of physical therapy to undergo...but their own house is an impossibility right now as it's a 2 storey house with their bedroom upstairs...as well as the bathroom...so off we go onto a new chapter/adventure with grandma and grandpa!!!!
...sooooo happy for him to be getting out...
:O)
LOVE YOU!!!
