Week 15 already! 😉
Sally sat on the edge of the hospital recliner, her back ramrod straight.
The nurse was nearby completing Sally’s discharge orders.
Joanie, Carolyn, and Darrin stood by in silence, each casting worried looks at their mother.
Carolyn knelt at Sally’s side.
“Mom, please reconsider. The doctor said your vitals are stable, but you still need to be careful. He’d signed off on one more night’s stay in the hospital.”
She reached out and caressed her daughter’s cheek.
“And what good would that do, Caro? Laying in that bed for another night would change nothing, including me. The police have questions and so do I.”
