Janie I'm so glad you are home!! I was worried about you! 8 days huh, that's no fun. I know exactly what you mean about not being able to control it in the beginning. It's horrible, I too wondered if life was over or if I'd made a mistake. Overall you sound like you are in good spirits and that makes me happy. Just follow your doctor's orders, be sure to take it easy and be good to yourself.
Thinking of you!!
