Rehab, Day 26, March 1, 2017

On the day of my grandmother’s discharge from rehab, following knee surgery to repair a broken patella, she settled in a lift chair in her home that belonged to my grandfather, who died in 2011. My mother, who hardly left my grandmother’s side throughout the rehab process, was overcome by exhaustion when they finally got home and, thus, took some much-needed rest on the sofa.
