just a quick update, we got home last night but i couldn't see out my eyes long enough to type an update. ( I cant put my glasses on till the dressing come off which should be tonight when Tim gets home from work) yippee. I'm starting to feel dirty and yucky. sponge baths don't do much for long hair. haha. I'm doing really well all things considered. if some ever says to you it feels like having an ice pick shoved in your ear. well, that is what it feels like when you wake up. but, by the second does of pain pills that's gone. I pretty much slept all day wed. then yesterday we took our time coming home and did stop and finish some last minute Christmas gift shopping ( which really wore me out) so, since DH has put all these gifts on the kitchen table i guess i have about 5 hours to pull it together and get them either wrapped or hid. ( before the school bus gets here) Im not allowed to bend over ( like with my head below my waist) or sneeze, or blow my nose, or get water in my ears yet. ( but the paper doesnt say for how long) Tim thinks maybe till the bandages come off. so I gotta write at least one more note probably to the hospital to check on that one. then i guess its back to bed with me. Thanks for your prayers and your cards. more later, me.
