Coming Home

The team of 12 year olds in charge of my care just finished their rounds. (Just kidding…they’re 20-something’s, but they make me feel super old!) Anyhow, they said I get to go home today! So excited!!! Checking out of here will most likely be a slow process. Infectious Disease still has to make their way up to see me, and apparently they round in the afternoon. My plastics team assured me they’d light a fire under ID and tell those guys I need to get home. Hopefully my guys have a big torch.

There is still a chance ID will make an adjustment to my at-home antibiotics, but we are praying and crossing fingers & toes that it stays the same (or at least includes an oral antibiotic.) If that’s the case the. My PICC line will come out later today and I’ll be on my way. The team did remind me that cultures can still change over the next few days so there is a (slim) chance that meds could even be switched up once I’m at home. The absolute worst case scenario there is that ID would switch me to an IV antibiotic and I would need to come back for another PICC line. This is really slim.

I just ordered some breakfast, will take a shower, and wait. And while I do this, I am reflecting on the verse that has been my mantra through all cancer-related things:
“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” Romans 12:12

Happy Sunday!!!
