I'm definitely excited and a little nervous. I know she's so excited to finally be home, even if it'll be at my house instead of her home... she's just happy to be getting out of the hospital. Despite both of her 'scares' due to an idiot nurse, she passed today's 'pop quizzes' (swallowing, etc) as her doctor called them with flying colors and they're letting her come home tomorrow. People are coming tomorrow to deliever her suction machine and food and such, and then someone will come every day to check on her. THAT makes me feel A LOT better. That's my reason for being nervous... I was shown what to do, and the nurses will show me again, but I'm so worried I won't do it right and she might get hurt or have issues. That suction thing looks pretty hard even if they tell me it's simple... She'll see her doctor Monday about getting stitches out, and then the oncologist on the 18th for the second step on this long road. I'm so proud of her, I honestly wish I could handle this as well as she is.
Tonight I'll just be getting the house ready for her, and setting up little welcome home gifts, and a nice board which I'll be putting nice messages on there from people as encouragement. I hope those of you that have said kind things don't mind if I use them! I know she'd love to read it.
