I'm home!

I was discharged around noon and was home by three thirty (stopped for lunch). I'm still having pain and discomfort, but I have enough painkillers to last almost two weeks. Hopefully, I won't need them. No lifting for a month, and I need to have a follow-up with the surgeon in two weeks. That's also about time for me to see my oncologist.

The next two weeks are going to be spent resting and recovering. If it's anything like last year, that means a lot of Star Trek at night, and morning walks in the garden.

Rory was glad to see me, but he's disappointed that I can't really play with him. It will be at least a week!

It will be even longer before I can sing again. The tube I had in my stomach really irritated my throat. I can't talk very much yet.

This was the longest hospital stay I've ever had. Ten days and nine nights. Luckily for me, I had Mom and Dad with me most of the time. They kept a room at the guest house so Dad wouldn't have to go home every night. Mom stayed in my room every night, but was able to take showers and naps at the guest house. We're all tired.
