We are home

I’m not feeling talkative so here are the bare bones.

Today, on our 9th day in hospital, we were discharged.  Boeta was so happy to leave.  Usually I need to take it slow and ease him out of hospital but today he couldn’t wait.  It helped that I could prepare him from yesterday already.

He is doing well, looking swell and is really enjoying being at home.  Since this morning he has done all the things that they monitor in hospital – eating, drinking, urine, stool, the whole lot.  We should’ve come home long ago! 😉

The children are still relearning the whole sibling interaction thing.  Please email me some alcohol or Valium – your choice. *insert wicked grin here*  They are driving me up the walls and I love it.

On Monday and next Monday Woutertjie will get Vincristine (short chemo treatment) and then next two Mondays we will go in for blood counts only.  Yes, that means that potentially we will be mostly at home for 4 whole weeks!  I still can’t get my head around that.  So much free time!  If I’m lucky I may get to do half the things that I’ve been threatening to do for the last 5 months!
