Surprise! I am home and loving it! Today I was allowed to return home for a couple of days since my blood levels were good and my surgery will not happen until Monday at 1 p.m. I am delighted to be able to sleep in my own bed tonight. My sister and brother-in-law are here with me through the weekend and I have enough medication to keep the pain under control. Thank you all for your prayers and for your continued love and support. Thank you for encouraging words and gifts. God wraps His arms of love around me even when the pain is unbearable, and the journey stretches out with more potholes than I'm willing to count.
