FREE AT LAST!
My mom was my transportation home and she brought along some "welcome home" pajamas to encourage me to continue to take it easy now that I'm home. The first thing I did after eating lunch was check on the rabbits. They were really skittish around me, but once they figured out that I was going to offer them food they seemed to be a bit more interested in me.
Brad has forbidden me to do much of anything (I love it that he treats me like a princess!) and basically just wants me to rest as much as I can. So right now I'm hanging on in the bedroom getting caught up on email and enjoying the wonderful smell of dinner cooking. My mom made us her famous "Peek-a-Boo" chicken. It's one of our faves. Brad stopped at the grocery store last night, so the fridge is nice and full too. I can say enough how good it is to be home.
It's always just a bit overwhelming to be home. Everything seems so big. Our bedroom for instance is larger than the hospital room and it's attached to our master bathroom. It's pretty cool not to have to drag an IV pole around with me to the bathroom, not to mention I don't have to keep track of how much I'm peeing. That reminds me, I probably should be drinking a lot of water now that I'm not hooked up liquid IVs TKO (that means "to keep open" my IV line for those of you who don't speak hospital.)
Well, that's it for now. Thank you all SO MUCH for the prayers, cards, phone calls and visits. It was wonderful to be supported on so many different levels. I only hope that I can be that much of a blessing to others in need.
Get lots of rest and yes drink lots of fluids!!!
Dan has had a really rough time lately too, so I haven't been checking much online. I'm sorry to read you have been having such a hard time. Know that I am sending healing thoughts, prayers and well-wishes your way. You are an inspiration, my friend.
Love and Light,
