We are sitting here anxiously awaiting to get out of the hospital!! It will be today we are told, and if anyone has ever been in the hospital you know that the words "you get to go home today" translates into "whenever we get around to letting you out". David is bouncing off the walls he is so excited.... he has had to have two infusions of magnesium through IV this morning so he has been tied to the bed all morning and that is not helping his restlessness! I just got back from the pharmacy and picked up his 24 bottles of prescriptions and we just went over all of them with the pharmacist yet again. We are once again so thankful that David was in the Navy because when I went to pick up his medicine there was a zero co pay for all the meds, and we only had to pay for the 7 over the counter drugs. The pharmacist told us that his meds are a retail cost of $7000 a month!
We are waiting for some final instructions from Christine, the transplant nurse, Heather, the dietitian, and Paula, our social worker and then we are SOOO out of here!!
Yesterday afternoon my Aunt Susan and brother Matt moved me totally out of the studio room and up into the 2 bedroom hotel room. Thank you so much you two!! It was so nice to get there last night and not have to worry about moving all my stuff! So last night after I arrived I got my stuff all settled and then got David's stuff all settled in his room, plus some surprises:) Then went to the grocery store and set up our little "homtel" so we can be comfortable for the next 3 months. He and I are both worried about not having a routine or structure over the next few months, since both of us are quite used to that in our everyday lives, so that is something we are going to have to work on. But for a few weeks I think we are both just going to take a big breath and CHILL! Especially him! He needs to just relax and really enjoy his second chance at life that God has given him.
