Dodging a bullet

Although Bodie and I had a great time entertaining each other during the last week,
...we were definitely ready to blow that joint, and got our opportunity today! We were officially discharged at 3:15ish (you know, just in time to get back to our house at 3:30 to meet with Home Health - anyone who lives in LA and knows where we live and how far we are from the hospital will find that humorous). We rolled in about 4:15 and I did my first training on the iv med with the Home Health Nurse. It seemed easy enough...maybe not so much at 10:30 at night, when I'm doing it all by myself! But that's ok - I'm sure it will become second nature before I know it. 

One of the surgeons remarked offhandedly that we really "dodged a bullet." Man, what a scary thought, just how serious this could have turned out. Praise God we caught it early and his team responded quickly and aggressively! 

How does Bodie feel about being home?
Yeah, he's aok with it. And so is someone else I know...
As we say in our neck of the woods "See ya, wouldn't want to be ya"...well, except for that whole picc line thing. If you don't have a picc line, we might actually want to be you tonight...

Thank you so much for the love and prayers!!!


  1. There's no place like home...
    No more scares Bodie...Sleep tight!
