It has been a memorable seven days at the hospital and now it’s time to go home and start a new chapter. Looks like I will be home sometime this afternoon or evening.
7-10 day hospital stay was the expectation from the start and I am grateful that my body is healing so well. Your faith and prayers have been integral. I also think my body is loving the nutrients it’s getting. I’m on some sort of high grade jet fuel through my feeding tube. For most of my life my body has survived on soda and sunflower seeds and nachos. Sorta feels like another life lesson in there for me to figure out…
When I go home I will still have a feeding tube in place. I can’t swallow any liquids until Monday and if I can prove to my doctor on Tuesday that I can keep down liquids, the tube comes out.
It will be a continued healing process at home that will take time and patience, but I am so happy. I miss my kids. I miss the feeling inside my home. I am ready to be home.
