I'm getting discharged today! Unfortunately we won't be out on time for our Harry Potter tickets, but I have a feeling it will be in theaters for a while, and we still get to leave on Sunday for our trip to Traverse City!
On Wednesday and Thursday I had sedated procedures, so I wasn't up for much computer time. But I'm feeling better since starting the antibiotics and anti fungal. I can breathe more deeply, I don't feel as out of breath when I'm doing things, so that's all good news. I don't have to wear oxygen all the time anymore either. That was one of my guidelines for getting discharged, I had to be off oxygen, and so I am. I'll still be on some antibiotics and an anti fungal, but at least I'll be out and able to enjoy myself!
Today we'll probably be running around doing shopping for things we'll need to take up north with us. We'll be staying in a condo on the beach with a kitchen so we bring some snacks and things, but they have fantastic food up there too. Moomer's ice cream, the Pleasantown bakery, Black Star Farms raclette cheese and French pastries (the best croissants I've had outside of France!), and of course the wineries! So today won't be so birthday focused, but that's okay, I have a great dinner planned for tonight. Tuna steaks, smashed potatoes, roasted potatoes (my dad's favorite, if we don't have them it isn't Shabbat), pea pods, and for dessert, coconut cheesecake!
I wonder if they pushed to get me out of here because the hospital is full and they need my room, or because they really like me and wanted to get me out for my birthday and vacation. Probably both! I am pretty popular among the medical folks, if that doesn't sound too ridiculous to say out loud :)
Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
