Hi everyone, can you believe it, they sent him home at 8pm last night. He seems ok, but I feel it's way too early!!
He's very anemic after losing about 4 units of blood, during and after surgery. He was borderline for a transfusion,
but they decide not to, and sent him anyway. He has to take iron enriched vitamins.
I guess I'll muddle through, although I know feel so tired... I think it's suddenly it's all hit home...

BTW, keith has read all your posts, and he wants me to thank you all for your concern. Bless you all!!!

Too many years with CD

Oh my gosh that does sound quick. Just the other day he was in ICU! I am sure his doctors know best. I pray you both get some rest and get feeling better quickly. (((BIG HUGS))) to you both.

 I would not hesitate to call ambulance or take him back to hospital if you feel it is necessary or he tells you he needs to go and I am sure he will ....and you know when something is wrong..

I am sure you are coming out of a shock kinda thing and you will start to come down from the stress about worrying and all about him so you being exhausted does not surprise me in the least

Why not have a lay down when he is laying down this way you both get plenty of rest ..........
Make something light for supper and worry about the darn dishes tomorrow hun

You have been a rock for him and again I am really glad he is home with you....
I just think it is too early now that I see he was just in ICU 

Let us know in here how he is doing and how YOU are making out too plz

God Bless

** I had been off sick for a few days I did NOT know he was just in ICU as Nanners had posted,,,,,,Like I said if anything happens I know you know to get him back there asap ambulance or something as it seems a wee bit quick to me now knowing the rest of it **

Thoughts and prayers to you both

:D... That's wonderful news... Hope it's smooth sailing from here on out... :)
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

I am glad he is home and hope he heals quickly! Remember laughter is a great stress-relief and speeds healing. Watch light-hearted programs and movie comedys. Skip the stressful dramas and all those medical trauma shows! Keep us updated!!
