My dad is heading home today. My Aunt and Uncle are bringing him in their motor home because insurance wouldn't cover the ride, even after we checked on this BEFORE he went to UCDavis, and received the OK.

I'm going out to meet with the delivery people to take delivery of the hospital bed and wheelchair. They should be there this afternoon, maybe late morning if he hauls ass making his deliveries, we're last.

We have our fingers crossed he will be released early this AM. It's going to be a very long trip in the motor home even without my dad in there.

So it looks like, for now, things will calm down on the traveling front.

Rumor has it my daddy-o might just be headed home on Wednesday.
Which is GREAT. Only that means that the ortho in Redding didn't clear my dad for heavier therapy on the leg, which is kinda a bummer. He'll just have to wait till Oct.

Another swallow test and more x-rays are holding up the final decision. Swallowing means coming home with or without a feeding tube. He'd be happier w/o. Though the thought of coming home is making him very happy.

Me too.
