Just hope that I am finally home for good.

Things were a little bit crazy around here. After a week of hospital stay my husband was relocated to rehab - 12 days, also out of town. Came back home, 8 hours later he got large red spots with puss in them, especially under the paper tape over his incissions, Back to doctor - staph infection, most likely caused by contaminated tape at rehab. 24 hours later back to hospital for another 48 hours and since this afternoon back home, but he still needs 3 times a day cleaning of all sore spots, treatment and rebandaging curtesy of his wife. He is as weak as a kitten. Wrong term, a kitten has lots off energy.

I don't want to see a hospital for a long time. It will take a couple of days before I have caught up with 4 weeks of e-mail and all the Garden Party postings.

Welcome home, may the grace of boredom be with you through the healing process. We were about to send out a rescue rabbit to find you.

Good to see you! It's scary when a person gets sicker from a hospital stay, seems to happen often.
You are most likely exhausted, but happy in your own surroundings.
We were really worried about you.
