The doctor sent mom home from the hospital yesterday. The diverticulitis infection has cleared, but she is still mainly having to eat light things like Jello and pudding, and drink lots of fluids like Gatorade and juices. Because of the mostly liquid diet, she is a bit weak, but able to do for herself for the most part. They scheduled a home health nurse to come out once a day for a while to check on her. Once she has recovered more, they are going to do surgery, which should clear up the diverticulitis once and for all. Since she was in the hospital for a week, her cat was very happy to see her back home.
