Daddy's home!

Actually, the doctor said yesterday that Dad's well enough to be discharged. Hehe. It was suggested that he be discharged yesterday, but Mum and I decided that it would be better for Dad to stay and get one more night of rest and another physiotherapy session today morning. Plus we thought it would give us time to get the house in order (logistics matters) and whatever stuff we need for him at home (purchasing matters). Ahahaha. We just managed to order the house but I still haven't done the shopping yet. *grin*

Dad's physio is progressing well, and he proudly told us that he stood up unassisted this morning! Wah-lau. The physiotherapist provided us with a four-pronged walking stick and it's another mini-miracle that Dad shuffled unassisted from the bed to the wheelchair, then from the wheelchair into my car, from my car into the house. Whoopee! Of course, it was rather tiring for him since he had a physio session this morning.

I'm the unofficial pharmacist now because I'm in charge of making sure Dad gets the right medication and at the right time. So I drew up a chart for Mum to follow whilst I'm at work tomorrow.

Righto, I'm off to do grocery shopping for Dad now. Tata!
