A final look out the window at the hospital …


Day 6 at the hospital—and the last one, too. He’s home with us — YAY!

Not that it was an easy process by any means. Medically, his hospital stay enabled him to dodge three big bullets of poor health that contributed to his strokes: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and high sugar level.

He was ready to leave earlier in the week, but as I mentioned in yesterday’s post, the medical clearance for discharge is only the first hurdle.

Took most of the day to get the answer to two simple questions: What of his inpatient care, outpatient aftercare, and prescriptions will his insurance cover? What outpatient aftercare necessary for his successful rehabilitation / recovery do we need to provide for him in our home that his insurance doesn’t cover?

Of course, we had hoped that the answers to those questions would have been answered quickly to give us a chance as a family to figure out how best to proceed. But despite having posed these questions to every person in the hospital system related to his care we encountered from Day 1, today—almost exactly six days on the hour from when we took him to urgent care last Friday—we had our answers and we could complete the discharge process.

We’ll all live to fight another day—and I imagine we’ll have to several times before it’s truly over. But for now, we’re all together, he’s on the mend, and it’s time for a little down time before tackling what’s next.
