I don't know.

I know the past few days haven't been easy. How are you feeling?

Do you want to talk about it? How can I help?

Not really. I don't even know what to say.

I wish I knew when I'll actually feel normal again. Like, will I feel normal again? What does "normal" even mean?

I know, honey. Just know that we're all here for you, so we’ll help you get to your follow-up appointment. I'll make the appointment to make sure you get what you need. Okay?


And we'll write down your questions so we're sure to ask them. Okay? 

Now give me another hug.

Your loved one is due for a follow-up appointment. 

Going to the appointment helps reduce their chances of going back to the hospital. 

Schedule it now to help them get the care they need to mend and move forward.
