AYNSLEY:Mom is back at the Kline! Infections are under control and she's happy to be out of the hospital. Dad is going back to work tomorrow and I'm hopeful that both my parents get a good night's sleep tonight.
There is something in me that's a little frightened when she's away from the hospital. It's so weird, as I'm generally someone who fears hospitals and avoids western medicine if at all possible. Common logic would assume that I'd prefer to have Mom at home with an acupuncturist and herbalist on call. And while that sounds lovely, the truth is that I'm terrified of her health stability and take comfort, though cynical comfort, in the hospital.
