Joel has been writing lost of updates about how things are going over on his blog. If you would like a true update, head over there. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for all of your support, thoughts, positive energy and everything. It really means a lot to me and I don't think I can say thank you enough. Earlier today, Joel showed me all the comments and emails everyone has been leaving and sending. He read some to me in the hospital when I wasn't doing so well and they made me smile too.
Tomorrow I might get to have my favorite food item again: nonfat Latte! I am slowly building up stomach strength and I think I might be able to handle a latte after having a taco today. I figure if the taco didn't make me sick, I can handle Starbucks. Bertie and I can't walk to Starbucks so Joel is going to have to get it for me. I did manage to walk down our hallway today without scaring anybody. I even made a new friend with a boxer puppy who likes to eat junk mail.
The last thing I am thankful for is what I am typing on! Right when I was having a little breakdown before surgery, Joel told me that his parents ordered me a new computer! They spent way, way, way too much but I really, really, really, really like having a functioning computer. I love it. I am beyond in love this computer. This is the first time I've used it since getting home because I wanted to make sure I was conscious enough to not do anything to damage it. That takes strength, let me tell you (it also helped I am still on heavy doses of pain medication).
Today, Joel told me I need to stop scarring him. I guess I have managed to do that since the beginning (I took him flying on one of our first dates). Let's hope that everything starts to calm down around the Feuer/Housman household and starts getting back to our new normal. Let's hope this new normal includes showering, I still haven't figured out how to do that yet. It's a good thing we have sponges.
