My mother is finally home from the hospital! And she's doing so much better than she has in a long time. Her trache is gone, her catheter is gone, she's more mobile than before (thanks to physical therapy) - she can actually get in and out of my car now, and cover short distances with her walker (as opposed to having to be pushed everywhere in her wheelchair). It's wonderful to see her so well, for a change.

I feel like I can actually exhale a bit now.

These last couple months have been so incredibly hard at times. I don't think I've ever felt more overwhelmed, completely alone, and in need of a serious hug. I mean, I know it's just a temporary respite from the perpetual drama of my mom's health - but it's a nice respite, and I'll take what I can get in that regard.

But now I've got to go to bed because I'm too tired to be coherent for another second.
