I everyone, I'm sorry I didn't post sooner. I have been home since monday but I am still struggeling to get my bearrings straight. I know I have been in 4 hospitals but that's about all I remember. I do remember all of you praying for me and wishing me well. I also remember the cards and phone calls and visits. Ok to be honest I know when Patty Latty came to visit I know she was there but that's about all I remember. Patty even though I don't remember a lot you being coming to see me will always be special to me. Plus I know all I have to do it get  sick and you bring me my favorite bed and bath stuff! thank you thank you thank you!
I got the utilities put in my name for the apartment!yeah I move in tuesday. Now I need to get a wash & dryer. A new couch and kitchen table. I got rid of the ones I had.
Everyone is invited to come anytime they want and help me celebrate my independence!
I would mention everyone by name that sent me stuff and encouged me but I would forget someone and I don't want to do that. I know everyone one praying me through this. Frankly I truly thought I was going to die this time. Every time I go in this hospital Coming out of it is so much harder then then the time before.
Well I just wanted to say hello and tell ya how much I love you all. To all the newbee welcome to the group. Stick around we grow on ya after a while. Well there are a few people that you have to give it a little extra time LOL
Ok my back just told me to get off the computer.
God Bless

Wow!  To come out of the hospital and have to face moving into a new place...that's not enviable.  If it's a good thing because of your past living situation, and a better alternative, than I am happy for you for sure.  Just the idea of being so sick and in and out of different hospitals and then having to adjust to a new place....I say again Wow!  I hope that you find yourself surrounded by people in person or on the phone, etc, that you have no doubt love you as you and will be there for you in the emotional lows.  I don't know you well, but regardless I'm happy to hear that you've come home...Sometimes the world can feel like such a big place...but really I think it's just full of people with a longing to be known and loved for who they are...I'd give you a big hug anytime you wanted one...or just because.  Take care, and may God give you the stregnth you need as you adjust.

Carol, it's good to have you back! Will you have a computer in your new place? You forgot to tell us how you're feeling.

I'm having foot surgery Monday and will be off my feet for a couple of months, and won't be driving either since it's my right foot. So you won't have to put up with my ugly face. But I'm sorry I won't be able to help you get settled in. I know you're going to love your new place. You did tell me that you're taking your dogs with you, didn't you. 'cause you need your pets and computer to keep you company.

I'll get in touch when we know I survived the bunion surgery. The real truth will come out when we see if my husband survives waiting on me for a few weeks.

I'm so glad you're doing better.

Lots and lots of ((((hugs)))),
