I picked up mom early for her doctor appointment so we could enjoy lunch together.

We had a great time. Mom needed to get out for a little while. Once we arrived at the doctor, we learned the appointment was a big mistake. Mom's primary care doctor's first name is Gilbert, last name Emde (pronounced MD) --Gilbert Emde MD...anyway... another MD is doctor Gilbert, here in Ponca City. We were instructed to set up this appointment with Dr. Gilbert MD--when really, it was supposed to be with Dr. Gilbert Emde, MD. The crazier thing is--these two doctors actually attended and graduated medical school together. They're friends--and I'm sure they'll be discussing and sharing a laugh or two over this mix-up.
Oh well-- mom and I had a nice time out and about! I received a call from the nursing center while we were sitting in the waiting room. They were calling to inform me that mom's progress is ahead of schedule and they're releasing her from skilled care on Friday. Now, she'll transition to a different kind of arrangement. It's a very positive thing. It's a big indicator of her exceptional progress in the last 45 days.
My plan had to be tight today. I wasn't able to get everything I wanted done, done--and that's okay. I'll have plenty to do/finish tomorrow.
I'm dropping in bed within minutes. It's been a long day.
Today: I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget. I remained refined sugar-free. I exceeded my daily water goal. And I stayed well connected with great support contacts.
Thank you for reading and your continued support,
