There's No Place Like Home

Sorry, I had to finish the Wizard of Oz theme from my earlier post. I arrived home yesterday and relaxed. Keith gave me a ride home so Mike didn't have to rush home and stayed for a while. Our former neighbor, Andrea, came by to visit us and Riley. Andrea's dogs Romeo and Maddie were best friends with Riley and they used to play together outside all the time. Riley is still sad that his friends moved away, but was really happy to see Andrea, especially since she brought him a new bone.

I'm trying to get some things done around the house today since my cousin comes on Tuesday, but my energy level is low and I'm having a hard time mustering up my energy. I'm trying to do things in 15 minute increments so I don't expend all my energy. I hope to have more energy tomorrow as my white counts continue to rebound even more, especially since we left the house a mess when we ran out the door last week to the hospital and there's a lot to do.

One thing I appreciate about home is having a remote control for the TV because I have to manually turn the channels at the hospital and it's hard on my finger. I also can't flip between channels or go from channel 24 to channel 55 very quickly. I also have cable at home: it's very good to be home.

You mean with that cool flat-screen computer-TV set-up at NIH - they did not give you a remote?! Weird!

Well, Glad you are home & hope your cousin's visit is a fun one.

Yay! Great news--have fun lounging in front of the TV. As for the messy house, something tells me that your cousin is sooo not going to care. You are sick, you know. You are entitled.

Actually--why not have a cleaning lady come once a week while you are sick? You don't have that much energy--spend it on the fun stuff. :)

You don't have a remote control at NIH?? What kind of early-80's show are they runnin' there? Haven't they heard of "universal remotes"? Even our hospitals in Ohio have remote controls. SHEESH. Big city livin' my arse.

Hope you're feeling OK today. You're always in our thoughts!
