I think I’m heading out of here tomorrow. Things are moving really quickly. They started pulling tubes this morning and now all I have left is my feeding tube and I’m leaving with that one. I’m wearing regular pajamas (thanks Anne) and feeling pretty human this afternoon….minimal pain, able to get up and move without calling a nurse. This is good, really good.
As for discharge tomorrow, I guess I’m ready. Jerry and Sean need to be ready too. There’s lots more than just “See you , have a good life.” They’ll be filling the feeding tube with formula and meds and flushing it several times as day. Sounds pretty overwhelming to me. I guess we’ll just go with the flow and manage just fine.
What’s wonderful is that everything, absolutely everything has gone well…the surgery, the recuperation, the feeding tube….I am one very lucky woman. Sean arrives soon….wonderful. He can help Jerry deal with all this. We’re in for such fun over the next couple of days (weeks?)
