Default pookie's going home!!??!!

seem soon, doesn't it? according to her Mom, the hospital desperately needs the bed.

our brave girl has no more IVs or catheters, but the drains are still in. she's walked a wee bit, and is said to be in good spirits, but in a lot of pain.

soooo keep those warm thoughts and prayers coming!!!

Gee, not much chance to recover before they boot ya out... Hope they at least send her home with the best painkillers.

Thanks for the updates, Jiffy and please tell her mum to give Pookie my very best wishes. Brave girl indeed!

Gotta love the insurance companies. Praying Pookie gets relief from the pain and has the help she needs once home. ((((Pookie))))

Pookie, thank you so much for taking the time to give me some support. You are such a sweet woman. I feel that in you. I know you are still probably not really feeling the greatest and it means very much to me that I was in your thoughts. You are in mine as well and have been since your surgery. You make me smile )
