Ok, I'm going to keep this one really short with the plan to expand on things tomorrow as it will be my first full day out of the hospital and hopefully a little more restful.
It's been a big day and I'm exhausted BUT I'm out of the hospital!
Meet my new best friend!
Prune juice finally kicked in about 8AM which paved the way for the discharge procedure.
The night staff came by to wish me luck and get their picture taken!
Prescriptions were written, the IV came out, fruit baskets and flowers were packed up and real clothes were donned. Final instructions given and patient escort summoned.
Four days after open heart surgery I was heading out. No question there was some apprehension but all things considered I felt pretty good and given the risks and constant activity inside the hospital I'm ultimately happy to be sitting on my hotel bed making this post.
Hopefully a good night sleep is only a few hours away!
