Journal Entry: Thu Jan 8, 2015, 5:22 AM
I am finally out of the hospital. My insurance finally approved my wound vac (don't ask it helps my foot heal, disgusting looking but it helps). I am so happy to be out of the hospital, I wished I felt worse cause I was never as sick as my wound description would lead people to believe.
With my infection I was trapped in my room, I would want some tests just to break the boredom. At least the delay gave me a boot that I could put on my foot and could walk around. When I finally received my discharge paperwork. At first they offered me to get a wheel chair, I decided to walk out with my walker. As I got ready my sister Dolores asked if I really wanted to walk all the way out. I reconsidered it and my sister went out.
When she came back she said, "The nurses are all busy. You want to wait."
I replied, "Hell no! Let's roll."
New York is in the midst of a cold snap, polar vortex or whatever. I really was in my room since Christmas so being out was great. I saw the lobby Christmas tree in Lutheran, and going outside was wonderful feeling the cold air. That lasted about three seconds, before I wanted to get out of the cold.
We may not be at Star Trek medical sciences, here is a pill and my foot is healed. The boot allows me to move around pretty freely, I am slowly and have to get used to much larger boot, but for being bedridden for nearly a month I was able to walk very good.
I need to take antibiotics to kill the last of infection, they wanted to send to a rehab home. I said no, more like NO F****ING WAY. I had a nurse come and train me on using the IV, the nurses can do this in about it seems two minutes. They have developed an illustrated mat which lays out the steps and supplies that I need for this. I am slow but it is completely doable for me alon
I am so happy to be home, well it is my sister's home. Hell I am so mobile that this week end we will be going to my house and picking some stuff. I will be going and get my drawing supplies. I will have new artwork soon to post.
