No Place Like Home

Dorothy was right, there is no place like home. B was so happy to finally get discharged from the hospital on Friday. He still needs to take major medications, some for the next six months, and will have to go back for tests but at least he'll be able to sleep in his own bed. Neither of us has gotten much sleep the past couple of nights and he is still getting sick, not eating much and has a headache but it isn't as severe as it was a month ago. I'm nervous being his only nurse so I'm keeping my fingers crossed he will just get better and better each day.

We're actually going to try to get out of the house today to go visit his sister and maybe even do a little swimming in her pool. We may not be able to stay long depending on how he feels but it will be good for us both to get out and get some fresh air. The weather is beautiful here and it will be nice to get out an enjoy it.

Get out and enjoy it while it lasts.


  1. Oh, that's excellent news! He'll have up and down days, no doubt, but it's got to feel better being at home.

  2. Home will probably be the best medicine. Hopefully now you can start to get back to some normalcy.

  3. I've been sick this past week with sinuses (finally went to the ER--the pain was unbearable!) and couldn't help but think of you both.

    It really knocks you for a loop when you aren't healthy :(

  4. Cammy: He's definitely happy to be home.

    Boilergrad: I can't wait for normal and boring.

    Manuela: I am so sorry to hear you have been sick. Sinusitis is what they misdiagnosed Bill with and said it can be extremely painful. Please don't hesitate to go back if you aren't feeling better in a few days. Hope you are already on the mend.

  5. Excellent news! I know its been a rough year so far, hopefully you'll be back to normal soon.
