Nan Mustard's Recovery

This blog is a record of Erin (Nan) Mustard's recovery.

Friday, October 20, 2006

Friday continued....

Not sure what happened but I'm told only my headline got sent out.

Nan is resting well after her bath. Doctors say we might be able to go home today. They want to wait a couple weeks or more to see if the body can heal the leak on its own. So for now we wait but we have contacted the discharge planner and crescent home health care just in case this thing can happen.

Right now I am heading out to move my car, its been two hours and the parking cop can give a big ticket if you stay to long. Nan had a good night and has talked to Irene who had a CT scan yesterday and we are all holding our breath until the results are in on monday. You are in our prayers Irene for sure.

Things are on the move here, Dr. Yee is here right now in the hall about to talk to us. The discharge planner has already been here and poor Nikki, she purchased and had shipped something for her mom three days ago and it got lost, now it is supposed to arrive today.

So the day begins, the planner, the nurse practiciner all are working hard to get things arranged for our leaving this evening.

Now I have to settle down, get up to Sac., get my very long hair cut somewhere, trade the bug for the van, try to get a little work done along the way. I will say this, for the past year life has not been boring, it is very terrifying at times, usually stressful, never time to relax or kick back, not even enough time to get the basics done but the positive side is there too. Nan and I have got to spend a lot of time together whether in Boston, on a plane, in a hospital room, we have had a great chance to spend time with our kids and especially with Keanna, enjoyed our friends on the phone and in person, had some home time and have seen God's hand touching Nan over and over again. It has been quite a year. We can't express loud enough how much we appreciate your involvement with us, you have helped with emails, phone calls, visits and financial help. You have reminded us over and over again that God is in charge and calmed our troubled nerves helping us find peace. This is not a fun experience to pass through but we are all making it day by day. We treasure our kids so much and they have been wonderful to us.

I hope this blog message gets out, the last one I wrote was lost somewhere. I'm blogging now because there are so many miles ahead for me today that I'm not sure when I will once again sit at a computer. So we leave this day with God and trust Him to lead out once again.

Thanks for your continuing love and prayer. Nan is taking calls today if you would like to say hi. Her room number is 415 353 7433.

love from room A427

    Hi Mustards,

    It sounds like home again ~ home again! I hope you will have more help when you get home. Do you think you could get some volunteers from your church to come sit with you? Have they given you any clue as to what they are thinking if the leak doesn't stop? I guess it's just wait and see. I'm looking forward to the next blog in hopes you have a few more answers.

    Have a blessed week end together at home or where ever you are. I hope it can be restful for you Tim. You need some quiet time without the stresses of life all around you.

    Continued Love and Prayers ~ Carol

    Hi Mustatds,

    We are wondering where You are and if Jan has arrived.

    The second Blog came thru just fine.

    We share concern that the leak is still giving Nan a problem and We are, with You, hoping that it will repair itself.

    We would love to say hello to Jan if She is there and You are at D. Bay.

    Carrol's Dr. appointment went well, He is pleased with Her Counts and has discontinued 1 of Her Med's (High Dollar One) that is very good news. She has 1 more lab test on Monday and a scan of some kind next week on Her left leg . Dr says Just routine. We will try to keep a positive thought about it.

    Much Love & Prayers,
    Bob & Carrol

    Nan, Tim & Jan,
    I think it is time to go home. I send my love to Jan. What a fun girl! Wish I could be there with you all. Jan, get ready, we have some paper work for you to look into, with your working knowledge of these things you will be a great help. Glad you got to come, Nan can use you , not to mention Tim!
    Will have a crowd at the dinner table this afternoon. Mexican food. I pray for a wonderful day for you all. Sabbath has a way of giving us just what we need. Take care, enjoy your time together, stop leaking, and know that we love you.
