Home again, home again, jiggity jig.

I got to leave the hospital at 9am this morning, after my calcium level had come back normal.  (They came in at 5:30 to take blood for the test - ugh.)  The nurses on this visit all seemed to be more responsive, or it may just be that on a Friday/Saturday there were fewer of us on the ward to take care of.

Things this time are the same, but different.  I feel a lot less fragile today than I did last week, and I think that's in part because I'm in less pain (neither my neck muscles nor my throat feel as sore this time), and mostly because this is familiar. I remember what it's like.  I have to be careful though, because having just done this I have to remember that I'm back at day one of recovery, not day three or four. 

The incision isn't any wider than it was.  it looks a little thicker, and honestly a little bit angrier than it did at this point last time.  The tape on my neck doesn't cover every single bit of the incision this time, which makes me a little nervous.  I'm tempted to go and buy some medical tape and fill in the gaps.  I did take a picture, but J's computer doesn't want to see the USB device, and I don't have the patience to find the software online right now.  But this time there will be photos. 

Mostly I'm grateful to be back home and not attached to anything.

i'm grateful you are back home too, and i can wait for pictures - really. getting better is more important than letting us see how quickly you're pulling it off.

Yay for being back home!!

*hugs* Glad you're home and all went well (and I hope that's not word-for-word what I said last time, but I'm lame like that!)
