I loved my surgeon, but he must have been awfully busy yesterday because he didn't show up to let me go home till 2!! I was going a little nuts by then, couldn't eat because everything smelled like hospital, and I really needed to stop watching Animal Cops because it kept making me cry... (but there is NOTHING ELSE ON in the middle of the day!) But then finally, I was free!! And here's a great example of that "lollipop-on-the-corner" thing my mom was talking about: I was thrilled that my bandage matched my pants!
The Red Vines need explaining. Every time I end up in the hospital, and they won't let me eat for 4 days, my food-obsessed brain always picks 2 things to focus on the whole time. Last time it was Red Vines and my mac-and-cheese, but I couldn't eat solid food between stays, so I was determined to indulge with a big ole' bag when I got out this time. So my super-hubby got me some. But the funny thing was... they tasted awful! I didn't even finish one! How odd, huh??
My Dad's office sent me these. Is that not the cutest thing you have ever seen!? It has a BANDAID for crying out loud!!!! AND it wasn't even his idea. I see a large box of cookies in their future. They sent an arrangement to my sister too, she went into the hospital the day I came out. Crazy time for my family.
And of course, there must be food. My first real food! Hooray!! This is one of my favorite things. Scrambled eggs and cheese on a bagel. Yum. My long-suffering husband was so sweet, trying his best to make it according to my very, VERY specific instructions. I have kinda perfected these. Its a little silly.
Sorry, but how perfect is that melty cheesy bit??
I'm so happy to be home.
