My surgeon said that as long as I was able to eat normal food for lunch and dinner I could go home. So for lunch I had pot roast and mashed potatoes. It was OK, but it stayed down and didn’t cause trouble. For dinner I had a stuffed bell pepper and mixed veggies. Also no problems, so they let me go. It’s really good to be home, and once I finish typing this I’m going to take a Vicodin and go to sleep. My abdomen’s still a little tender.
And I got a pleasant surprise. My mom’s flying out from Rhode Island to help out for a while. It’s going to be nice to see her and it’ll be good to have someone around just in case I need some help.
