B is the word.

C Word

I arrived home about 7:30 this evening, after 11 days in the hospital.  This is Day 15 post-mojo.  My white count today is 930, neutrophils “400-something”.  The docs agreed that I’m in good shape, my numbers are going up, and I have a good care-giving situation (da best!) so it’s OK for me to go home despite not reaching the magic 500.  I could tell my nurse was skeptical, but hey.  I made it a full 12 hours ahead of deadline …

As I walked in the door dinner was on the table, a delicious chicken stir-fry made by my younger daughter.  Now that’s care-giving.  Check check check on those forward-looking things.  Still lots of getting better to do, but the worst is behind me.  Now to sleep in my own bed.

Our stately home
