At 11:00 a.m.got the go ahead to be discharged to Mercy by 3 p.m. was leaving the 7th floor of Depaul. I was amazed by the warm good bye’s I received and not surprised by the warnings not to return.
Driving to Mercy, I became nervous and apprehensive. I have entered a place that is new to me. I have never walked these steps myself.
Mercy seems to be nice. I am in room 223, private room. Ron unpacked my stuff. Dinner was done. It’s a bit different, everyone eats in the dining room together. The choices are very limited. As it was my first night, they let me eat in my room.
No one has been in, its very quiet. I am taking deep breaths and just absorbing it all. I am not sure of the routine here, so I am just waiting to see. I am still not able to get up alone or move about alone so I feel a bit “grounded”.
Ron has gone to get the kiddos and will let me know later what is happening. My schedule for tomorrow is on the board by the nurses desk so he took a pic of it for me.
Meals at 7, 12 and 5
