Stuff I can't wait to have when I'm out

While recovering from my hospital bed, enduring diet restrictions and following strict intake/output guidelines there are some simple things I am sooo looking forward to when I get out:

1. Being home with my family

2. Drinking some apple juice

3. Drinking some coconut water

4. Eating a Popsicle

5. Sleeping in my own bed (and not get poked and prodded every 2 hours)

6. Enjoying some sunlight on my face and head

7. Eating some of my grandmother's soup

8. Not getting Heparin shots (those suckers burn!)

9. Being free of IVs and electronic monitoring devices

10. Eating some phở (yum...fresh lime juice)

I could probably go on and on, but this is a good starting point and I don't want to get greedy.

The word thus far is that I will be able to leave (check out) this coming Mon or Tues. Now I'm not saying this needs to be set in stone. I could be made to see the logic of getting out by the end of the weekend. I'm just saying...

Wishing you the best, Jeremy ... hope you are home sooner than the plan?

Just checked the blog and saw your update. You, my friend, have amazing fortitude. I am hoping you get that Whipple and can get back to normal. In the meantime, I am thinking of you often, and your lovely family.
