“Just before Mom went up for surgery, I was joking with her: “I’ll be here to blow on your boo-boo once you’re back in your room….”After she was discharged from the hospital and went home, U.P. Home Health nurses took the sting out of caring for her wound. They changed her dressing and checked for infection every day for the first two weeks. They called her surgeon and helped us find just the right amount of pain medicine to keep Mom comfortable. I didn’t have to worry about anything except finding the perfect Snoopy band-aid.”
