They have had her in PT and climbing stairs equivalent to what she must do when she gets home so that is a positive. She knows she has enough strength and she can always stop and rest. (You can't do that with a PT slavedriver looking on. LOL)

I told her she was probabl;y going to need to see what she could and couldn't physically do for a week and then make some decisions as to how long her daughter would need to stay.

I won't be here tomorrow for a good part of the day. I'm having another of those esophageal burns for Barrett's Esophagus. I have the first appointment at 7am so I should get home by 1-3pm EST. You can't eat anything for a few days that might  scratch the raw area after the burn so, f went out and got some jello cups and some milk to make mashed potatoes with deviled ham a little while ago. Been there, done that before.

Smoking weakens the valve from your esophagus into your stomach. Acid refulx is often the result. I didn't know I had it and it went on for years untreated. I have high grade dysplasia in a number of areas which is just before cancer. My dr said 6 years ago, they would've just chopped out my esophagus.
