Hi friends and family,

This is a quick note as I have left the hospital long enough to rest Dad and cook some stuff and the timer is about to go off!

Mom is doing great. They removed her chest wires today and may get relieved of at least one chest tube today or tomorrow, along with maybe the catheter.

She is on her way "down the hall" to the normal recovering wing and that is a big boost for us all. It took me 15 mins to untape all of your lovely, thoughtful cards from the wall and right now, Barb is in the process of relocating them all to room 121!

She is in good spirits and looking forward to rehab at 191 Gray Road with us and then home...we hope by Xmas.

Love to all and thank you for your continued support and prayers.
