It's Good To Be Home
I'm still recuperating. Taking antibiotics and pain medicine. I spent all morning in bed, surrounded by three loyal cats. Now I am going to try sitting up for a while, and get reacquainted with my laptop.
In my last post, I didn't explain the entire situation. We had gone out of town for the weekend. We flew in Friday and planned to fly home Monday. I woke up in pain Sunday morning and was admitted to the hospital. We had to cancel our flight home and wait to see how long I would have to stay. They let me go on Thursday but made me stay in town one more day to make sure my blood cultures were negative for bacteria. I was SO relieved when they called me on Friday and said I could go home.
We had to decide whether to fly or drive home. I still felt uncomfortable so I could not imagine going through airport hassles, possible delays and flight cancellations. So we decided to drive. It was a long drive, but I got as comfortable as I could in the car. By the time we got home I was exhausted and went straight to bed. I can't begin to tell you how good it felt to be back in my own bed, in my own home!
So, finally I am at home. I'm sitting up in a big chair, watching "Sex and the City". I never saw it the first time around because we didn't get HBO in those days.
