Today is MONDAY! We’ve been waiting for this day since Friday when the doctors suggested that Monday might be the day that we could go home. It has been a LONG wait. Sitting in the hospital is absolutely no fun.
The first couple days I was going good. By Saturday Kramer had enough and by Sunday, I had enough. My patience was slim…..My bottom was sick of sitting in a lightly padded uncomfortable hospital fold up chair. I am sick of food that I didn’t cook. I swear I have stomach rot. AH…like I said, I had enough.
I ended up spending a lot of Sunday trying to play catch up on the blog. I had comments to moderate, posts to write and a sense that I wanted it caught up so once we get home, that would be one less thing that I’d need to do.
Kramer has good news. He got his chest tube out. He lost his oxygen later in the day too.
I have to admit that going home makes me a little nervous. I’ll have childcare going on and Kramer will be around the house recuperating. I think recouping is hard enough without having kids around…but I need my job so we have to figure out how to make it work. Our kids talked about getting the basement set up a bit so he can hang out down there. We have our bedroom that he can go to…or the garage once he’s feeling a little better. I’m sure there will be a lot of trial and error going on.
I did get some more stitching done……My “LOVE” one is finished and now I’m on to this one….
While Kramer was sleeping he accidentally hit the remote and turned the television to a channel that was playing Grease….so, I made him watch it for a bit. He was not impressed. He’s not a musical person at all…Not at all.
We are both so ready to be home. SO READY. Hopefully as you are reading this we are either there or headed that way. For those of you who don’t know, Iowa was hit by a blizzard Saturday night through all the way to Sunday night. We are a little nervous and curious as to how the trip will go. Thankfully we have highway all the way…most state highways. Our last three miles is always the worst but we’ll make it even we go VERY SLOW. We want to be home so badly.
We are ready for a new chapter in this journey.
