I made it home yesterday. I’m SO glad to be here. I went straight to bed when I got home, and slept for what felt like forever. I got up at 5:30 this morning, walked the dog and then went back to bed until 10:30. It felt great to sleep in. It’s nice not to be on anyone else’s schedule. I found myself feeling bored this afternoon, but that passed. :)
Thanks to everyone who made this easier for me. You all know who you are. Thanks especially to Rachel and Monica.
Good to hear that you have settled in. I head for home on Wednesday. Can’t wait.
Take care of your critters and yourself.
It sounds like a Steely Dan song!!!
Well now Beth, was that so bad? Just kidding. Drink shakes, you have to eat along with the sleep. You seem much more active and “with it” than I but I hope someone is looking in on you, phoning, doing the cooking, getting you audio books. I like the “Woman in Charge” by Bernstein. I have to know who I’m voting for in 2008. Also, I think “Lincoln” by ? was outstanding. I just completed Ann Patchett’s “Magician’s Assistant” and that was in stock at the local library. Boredom is not good but you seem to jump hurdles very well.
Hugz and a sweet talk for your dog,
I’w so happy that you are at home and yours SCT is finished :-)
I know this fantascic feeling – get back home
Way to go, Beth. The first sct scared me so much I didn’t go home for 60 days. The second we came home at 30 days. Day+16 seems to me to be to very receptive to infections from bacteria, etc. But that is me. Be really careful what you touch, smell, eat for quite a while. Staying home is the goal.
I hope you have someone there to watch over you. Please don’t fall. I was somewhat shaky and had poor balance for a month or more.
Yahoo! Go Beth!
Hurray! I am picturing you walking your dog. That is a darned GOOD picture! Keep us informed of your progress and give yourself a big hug from Margaret in Italy!
