I finally left the hospital for a few hours today. I am sitting at home just trying to chill out and find some peace. I love David with all my heart, but 19 days straight in the hospital is making me a little stir crazy. Not to mention how much pain my neck and shoulder is in. We talked with the social worker today and she said she wasn't sure David would leave the hospital before his next chemo and when he does he will be going to an acute long term care hospital. She told me long term means at least 25 days as defined by my insurance. I am going to have to go back to work in January so my mother-in-law will sit with him during the day and I will go to work, drop by the house take a shower and change (because I will be around germ filled kids all day) and then head to the hospital. This is definitely a test of endurance on both of our parts. I just pray he lives to come home. The longer they keep him away from home the more fear I have that he will never return here. Oh yeah and we will be celebrating Christmas in a hospital. Well on the bright side at least I will be with my husband.
