Good Morning! Maybe home today??

After the toradol (spelling, have to check that out for my education ;) shot, and then a dilaudid I went to sleep without doing my thing here. Sniff. Sniff. So, so sorry, you were all on my mind. Really, I was . . . Anyway, I fell asleep, woke once about midnight, and Tonya set me up with Shasta Diet Lime-Lemon Soda and ice, so I knew I was covered for the rest of the night. Yeah. Was I ever. Right back to sleep! The clock on the wall showed 6:00 when I looked at it next! All night without waking, and without a severe headache! A managed headache, yes, but not a screaming, explosive one. YaY, YaY, and YaY again. Yes, a headache that needed taking care of,, but feeling so much better. Just so much better! Maybe that will count big on my going home.

That's it for now. Just wanted to tell you about my good night's sleep after the change in our pain control attempt, and that I am really hoping, and thinking I will be going home today. Say a prayer for me that that will be true! I'm so ready to go! Still got a bit of post-operative pain in my surgical area, but nothing to complain about; it will just wear itself out.

I'm just ready to go home to the best caregiver in all the world! He helped me while he was up here. He knew our little *ways of doing things* and was such a big help. Maybe it counts that I love him so much, too.

It is time for breakfast; they should be here just any minute now with the trays.

Here is breakfast now!

I said a prayer for you as requested, so that means you're probably already on your way home.

Glad to hear your night was relatively better sleepwise.

Hi again,

I am thinking of adopting 'Horny Cat'.

I could do with some advise. I will send you an email.

Cara, you are a nice friend to have! Thank you for the prayer. Things have come along just as I (we for my husband and I) needed/wanted them to be. My shoulders, especially the side with the port implant, are still sore, but that will get better, and I think the treatment had better results than any so far. At first, it would take me two or three days to recuperate in bed with total sleep following a course, but not so now. I'm feeling all chipper.

It's thundering and lightening here now, so this is it. I'll go check your blog.

Oh, Cara, I was just publishing that when I remembered *Horny Cat* and I am so sorry.

Yes, we'll have to get together on that. I think that is sweet. You should have seen the look on Jim's face when I told him I would have already taken her in if I had been there... LOL HE knows me and animals, mostly cats, though. They tug at my heart strings. I've got a new pic I've got to try to work into a new blog entry.
