home again

My mother is out of the hospital. She had a pulmonary embolism and the only lingering effect is adding blood thinner to her daily routine and a suggested change of diet. Her plan to be so polite that the hospital would decide she’s fine and let her go home worked.

“How are you feeling?”
“Fine and ready to go home.”
“Any pain?”
“Only my husband if I don’t get home soon.”
“How’s your breathing?”
“I breathe best at home.”
