I woke up a short time ago and am heading back to bed shortly. My body said “hey, time for your meds”.
But I wanted to take a quick moment to update everyone and let you know that I am home and am being cared for by the best nurses in the world. My dear husband has been beside himself making sure I have everything I need. He’s teaching me that it is ok to let someone else take care of me for a change. I can’t imagine going through this without his undying love and support.
My wonderful brother has been handling the housework and taking care of the dog for me, and his strength and help mean so much to me. I’ll never forget how he’s willing to set aside his own life for me at this time.
(These two men are amazing caregivers!)
The kids have been amazingly supportive and are being quiet so I could sleep (for once, no loud teen music or friends sleeping over!).
Friends are helping out as much as possible and sending food for me so I don’t need to think about what to eat when I don’t even want to think about food.
And I wanted to share my immense gratitude for all of you who have expressed such wonderfully kind words of hope and caring. It means more to me than you will ever know.
So, I am in amazing hands. I will be sleeping a lot more than usual over the next few days, but I plan to tell you all about the hospital and some of the amazing heroes that were so kind to me there. Miracles can be found, no matter where you are.
(I even had the chance to inspire a nurse to tears of joy, but more on that later)
Thank you again for all your prayers and well wishes. I am certain all that positive energy went a long way to getting me home sooner than we all expected.
