I get to go home today. Which is good, because there's nothing for me to do here in bed at the hospital anymore. But I'm also nervous. I feel kind of in a daze. But then an hour from now, I'll be feeling quite normal ready to take on the world. Not sure what that's all about. Probably just something that needs to work itself out.
My dad returns back to New Jersey today, so I pray for safe travels for him. I'm so grateful that he was here for all this and that he has a good job to go back home to. I really do have these amazing parents who will just do anything for me and I am so blessed by them. My mom is staying on as my caregiver until I kick her to the curb...but she doesn't realize that will be NEVER! I pray my kids won't drive her insane!
Other things on the horizon right now:
I'll have these staples taken out on Friday. I am REALLY panicing about this. The nurse said that each staple will feel like a pinch. Um...yeah....that's what they tell you when you get a shot...it will just hurt for a second. I think I'll just not think about what's to come until Friday.
Next week I'll have to start looking into radiation of my head. They need to make sure all the brain tumor is out of there. I don't know what all this means yet, but it will be happenening.
And then we may be looking at more chemo.
Whatever we gotta do right now....that's just the simple plan at the moment. Of course there's so much more entailed. But that's the basic plan.
