Love how you brought together "checkout" as an investigation & "checkout" as a discharge from hospital. Love that Mom has her destinations figured out too! Good insight into dealing with life's challenges; a well-written article.

A little red ink: Remember to capitalize "Mom" when used as a proper noun, thus "that mom had fallen" should be "that Mom had fallen" etc. Lower case is for when it's "my mom" or "a mom" as with "to which my mother tartly replied". And one more I think was a typo? "With the mom squared away..." ;-)
Our lives are always changing - always finding new kinds of normals, for sure. This is something many of us have gone through or will.
Feeling finally at peace, probably meant that the MC made the right decision. It is difficult to decide what to do when a parent's health is in jeopardy.
