Thanks to Ralph Hutchison, of the Oak Ridge Environmental Peace Alliance (OREPA), for this late evening update.
jackie was released from the hospital around 5:00pm today. sue and joe moved her to shelley’s house. i went by this evening after my meeting. she is tuckered out from the trip, has some back pain, is frustrated by limitations on her mobility, has some appetite, is anxious to get back home to see her own doctor, and, well, sounds like a patient who is tired of being patient.
she had an upper GI today which was clear enough for them to release her; they told her to see her doctor immediately when she gets home. her kidney function is not “normal,” but is stable and in the safe range. she was told to drink lots and lots and lots.
i think the plan is to stay here a couple days to regain strength and get used to moving around again, and to leave for seattle as soon as she feels up to it.
