Mom has had many good days now.  Spoke with Dr. and Social Worker about coming home.  Only thing holding her back is her nutritional absorption.  They are going to try to remove the TPN (supplemental nutrition through IV) during this weekend, keeping a close eye on her blood work to make sure her lipids, protein, and whatever that can be checked is in order.  Will she how her body reacts to no extra calories and nutrition. Then will determine the course we will travel.  Hopefully this week, we will know whether she will come home with TPN or if she will be able to give it up and maintain on her own.   She has already lost about 30 pounds, so she does not need to loose more.  ETA for home will be the end of this week or first of next week, depending on how long it takes to get everything lined up for coming home.  Good timing as we will be out of school for the summer after Thursday.  Hope everyone has a safe and happy Memorial Day.

    Glad to hear that she seems to be on a steady path of progress. It also appears that she’s timing her return home very nicely to coincide with the school break. I guess that’s a result of a long career as a schoolteacher!
