Topic: Home...kinda of!

Hey everyone!
I was discharged from the hospital last night, so I got to come to the little apartment in Houston! It was a busy night getting my medicine together and all my supplies together! I have to check my blood sugar 3 times a day, BP 3 times a day, temp, and weight.
I have a big box for all my pills, but I was really surprised....it wasn't as many as I thought it was going to be!
I'm feeling good. Still in a little pain from. The surgery, and still a little weak. I can't wait to get fully recovered and see what it is like!!
Thank you for all your thoughts, prayers, and well wishes!
Love,
Tiffany

OK MS Tiff, good report! Do they expect you to cook and clean???  LOL
I saw your picture where you are leaving the hospital and you really look great, coloring and all.  Hopefully the pain will lessen each day. You seem to be doing so great and you have made it sound not as bad as I thought it would be. You are our Superwoman!
