I am not JUST sitting up in bed, anymore, folks. I'm typing, putting words on paper so to speak and my brain is working fairly well. That wasn't always so here in Hospital-Land.
The several days of hallucinations were odd and interesting.
Ant-like bugs were scooting up the walls of my room for a couple of days, little fishies swam upstream on a room divider curtain and at various times I saw people and cats and some other animals who were not really there.
My brain is still slower than I would like but after many hours of anesthesia during the surgery, they tell me, that is to be expected for awhile. For now, let's set that aside until later for something more important: hasn't Autumn been wonderful?
She was here when I woke up from surgery, although I don't remember much of that, if at all, and the next day I was so happy to wake up to her wonderful face again – this time with a real memory of it.
I've read all her posts and all your wonderful replies and comments now, and they are all the proof I need that this is the best blog community on earth.
I will never find the right words to thank each of you for your strength, constant support, good cheer and I am loving your black humor. You go, Cowtown Patti, with those Nwalins chicken feet.
Here's the big good news: maybe, MAYBE I will be able to go home on Wednesday. That's just a maybe for now; some additional test results need to come in so we'll wait and we'll see.
Thank you, every last one of you, for being there for me with so much love and so much kindness. You make me happy.
