I was finally released from the hospital today, and what a glorious day it is. It is beautiful in Palo Alto. A family here, the Brand family, has been gracious in opening their home to us. It is only two miles from the hospital. We are staying in the guest house with a back yard reminiscent of the Garden of Eden with a Koi pond just outside. Barbie has already stayed here off and on for 2 weeks. I continue to be overwhelmed by the kindness of so many good people. I can't imagine a more serene place to recover.
The real work begins for Barbie. I have strict diet restrictions; I can only eat packaged processed junk food. My water has to be boiled daily. I will continue to go into the ITA (Infusion Treatment Area) daily for labs and treatments as needed.
I am still quite fatigued, I am still recovering from the pneumonia, but I feel a little stronger everyday. But every day fro now on is one day closer to complete recovery. The worst is over.
