Hi there all!
As of Monday we will more then likely be out of the hospital.... insert huge applause and lots of yelling here...... yes it will be a joyous occasion. Even though we can't go home quite yet, we are still all very excited that we will not be permanent residences of Stanford Hospital anymore, but we will be residences of Palo Alto for the next 3 months.
David has a lot that he still has to go through and it is still a long journey ahead of us. We have to come back to the hospital every Monday and Thursday pretty much all day long for heart biopsy's to make sure that he isn't rejecting and do lab work. These tests will take most of the day, he also signed up today to be part of a research study on donor hearts, and I was really proud of him for deciding to do that. He also was given the list of medications that he is now on and it is a sheet that is 4 pages long and it is over 25 pills that he has to take at 4 different times of the day. Life is not going to be "easy" over the next few months, but we can handle anything at this point.
He is getting restless right now, time seems to be dragging by for him since he is getting so close to getting out of here. I too am thinking the same thing, we are so close to the end of the hospital stay but yet it seems so far away. Time is literally standing still for the both of us right now. He told me today he really wants to feel normal again, he feels better each day, but he longs for the day when this is all totally over.
At this point I would ask that you no longer send anything to the Standford address, I will update the side bar of the blog with the hotel address if you would like to mail him him something. He still loves getting all the cards and goodies, so I want to make sure you all have the correct address!
