I'm free!

September 7th, 2011 at 09:15 am

The doctor pulled my PICC line and set the surgery date -- October 5. I was discharged from the home health service. They've already picked up the supplies and equipment.

I am back at work, in person. I took a real-live-honest-to-goodness shower this morning!

I sent my first medical payment -- $216. I forgot to charge it to my flexible spending card, but there will be many other opportunities to use that.

This morning I stopped at the grocery store and bought juice and pastries to bring to work as a thank you to everyone who helped. That was about $32.

At noon today I will run to the clinic to have blood drawn, and then I will see my primary care doctor tomorrow for follow-up.

I am back in the real world!

    I remember how good it felt to take my first real shower after the surgery and then again to take one without being attached to any tubes. Such beautiful freedom! Hope your day goes well.
