I am finally home, arrived later Friday evening. I still have the kidney drain in because my left kidney is still stick and on the mend so I am home bound for 2 weeks until I go back for them to check my kidney out down in Radiology, make sure it's functioning properly and then they'll remove the drain. They've decided to leave that tiny kidney stone alone because it is so microscopic and another procedure would only put me at risk for exposure to more bacteria and none of my doctor's want that. More home rest and antibiotics to follow that as well and possibly some physical therapy to help regain my strength. Wow, by the time all of this is 'over,' July will be gone!
Leaving the hospital and coming home was a little overwhelming, a feeling I've had before after leaving the hospital and it's difficult to explain. I'm a little afraid being home (after what I've been through this last week I'm surprised I'm not in a terrified stupor, lol!) and I'm prone to crying at the drop of a dime, but I'm so glad to be home!
I'm also so thankful for my husband, mom and friends! You've all been so wonderful throughout this with me and your loving support means more than I could ever begin to tell you so I want to thank you. Words across the internet or to a cell phone are the same to me as being wrapped in a comforting hug. Thank you!
