The transition from inpatient to going home. I wish there was more education or knowledge about how to transition from such a catastrophic event to going home. And, you don’t have nurses and doctors around 24 hours, you don’t have psychologists and people to talk to on hand. And that was just—I wish I would’ve known how traumatic that was. Like I said, even though I had the support system, when you don’t have the medical people, or like you say, the nurses to physically help you. My mom was there, but physically she wasn’t able to do a lot of the things that the nurses and the doctors were able to do. So, just maybe knowing how that transition would be would’ve helped a whole lot more to know how you transition from inpatient to going home.
