The doctors just rounded and they said I can go home! I am so excited. It's been a week since I've seen my kids and Thursday since I've seen my husband. We are never apart like that and I think that has been the hardest part of this whole thing. Can't wait to be home!

Yea!!!! Take it easy and no picking up your baby! I bet you'll be cuddling a lot, though.

Yes, they said I can hold him if someone puts him on me, but it will be awhile before I can pick him up by myself. No hernias for me!

So happy for you! Remember to take it easy. It is so tempting to want to get back into old routines as soon as you get home, but you can't and need to rest a lot.
-Officially diagnosed with UC in 2006, though had symptoms since 1999.
-Had mild/moderate symptoms continuously until severe flare in autumn 2010 which required 2-week hospital stay
-Took Asacol, Rowasa, Canasa and Prednisone to manage flares but meds stopped working
-Tried 1 infusion of Remicade but had excruciating joint pain and discontinued
-Had permanent ileostomy surgery 11/8/2010

Absolutely take it as easy as you can. I hope you have some family or friends who can give you a helping hand. If your hubby is a great house husband then maybe you won't need the help. If I were the one recovering from this...I would need help definitely as my husband is not much help at all which is so totally my fault for these past 42 years! lol
64 yr old male suffered with UC & in May 06 had a severe flare & hospitalized 6 days...various prednisone treatments leading to steroid dependence and osteopenia, 12 asacol, 200 mg Imuran, failed remicade infusions Jan-May 2010 Dependence on pain meds. Made decision 6/10 to have surgery which was on 12/17/10 (total proctocolectomy & ileostomy - unable to have the j-pouch) and no longer in pain.

Congrats. Enjoy those babies, but take it easy. Take advantage of folks waiting on you while you can !

My husband does more around the house than I do normally, so it will be ok. He will home with me for two more weeks, then my mother in law is coming for a week, and then my sister will come during the day for a couple of weeks. Lots of help lined up.

Man it took forever to actually get out of there! The ET nurses were really backed up so we waited for one for hours. Now we are on the road though and I'm quite happy.
