The Hospital Stay:

I stayed in the hospital for a total of seventy-nine days. For the first fourteen days, I was battling covid pneumonia. So those fourteen days are a blur. 

For the next fourteen days, I remained at TCU.

They put me on a soft food diet.

It is a good thing I studied nutrition. Although I understood nutrition; I battled with a protein deficiency. I had to get very creative with what I was allowed to order.

Around the twenty-eighth day, the doctors transferred me to the independent floor to get ready to go home. On the Independent floor, I owned a walker, a cup, and a hospital gown and excess to the bathroom. 

It took me two days to be brave enough to use the walker. I had watched my mother for years. At that time, I was fifty-four years old. It had never dawned on me that I would need such a device at that age. 

For the next three days; family members came by, to encourage the exercises.

Late in the evening of the third day, my right lung collapsed.

They called a rapid response, and I transferred back to TCU.  

I was at TCU for three days. Then I was transferred to the PCU again.

The stay in PCU lasted for twenty-five days.



As I arrived in rehab, I brought more belongings.

  •  I had enough clothes to change twice a day.
  • A deck of cards a nurse bought me.
  • Some reading and writing tools that a friend brought me.
  • My hygiene supplies.
  • A walker and a wheelchair.
  • I had a simple daily routine and a simple nighttime routine. 

5 Actionable Tips:

  1. Simple Routines can be inspiring.
  2. Owning less is not a bad thing.
  3. Living debt free is fantastic!
  4. Living a frugal life can save some stress.
  5. Your family is not left going through your belongings.
