8-13-10 Friday

Status: 8.0/10.  HOME!  Pulled my peripheral IVs, disconnected me from the hive, and back on familar ground.  Looking forward to a night without being awakened for vital signs or voiding in a urinal.

Events: Hickman catheter inserted successfully.  I’ll be on two IV antibiotics (one just for a few days), and stay on the other until my white counts reappear.

Comments:  Feel better already, and hope to stay away from the hospital for some time.

Have a great weekend.  We’ll return Monday.
