Georgia Comes Home from Rehabilitation Center

Rosemary’s friend Georgia is coming home today after her stay in a rehabilitation center following a hip fracture.  She insisted on taking a taxi home and would not allow Rosemary to pick her up.  Rosemary decides she will meet Georgia at her home later in the day to make sure that she is settling in properly.  Rosemary will pick up some necessities from the grocery store for Georgia and deliver them to her when she goes to visit.  Rosemary is excited to have her friend back at home so they can spend some time together.

Rosemary stops by the grocery store to pick up some items for Georgia.  Rosemary knows that Georgia loves fried chicken.  Rosemary picks up a whole fried chicken conveniently cut into pieces.  Next to the chicken there are biscuits and pre-mashed potatoes, gravy, and many ready to eat foods.  Rosemary chooses a selection and then picks up some of the basics such as, milk, bread, butter, and some vegetables.   Rosemary travels up and down the isles of the grocery store as a method to illuminate any foods or goods Georgia might need.  Rosemary thinks that she will play it safe and buys some dishwasher soap, toothpaste, a toothbrush and toilet paper for Georgia.  Rosemary checks out with her large load of groceries and then heads to Georgia’s house to see how she is settling in.

Rosemary leaves the groceries in her car and walks up and knocks on Georgia’s door and waits; she does not hear any movement inside and wonders if Georgia is home yet.   She knocks with more gusto one more time to make sure that the knock is heard throughout the house.  Rosemary waits.  Finally, Rosemary hears some movement inside of the house and Georgia opens the door.  Georgia is pushing a walker in front of her.  She greets Rosemary warmly and they both go inside.
