now, are you taking care of yourself during this stressful time?

I'm doing okay, thanks. Of course the house feels empty, but I do have the cat to keep me company (when it suits her fancy). And I'm spending most of the day at the hospital anyway. (I work for myself, so I've given myself a few days off.)

I'm expecting that xraymd will be discharged home tomorrow, one day earlier than originally planned. She won't have to go to a rehab facility first, which is great news. It means she's recovering extremely well on her own. Yesterday she learned how to get in and out of bed, and today the occupational therapist is going to teach her how to get dressed! It sounds silly, but she has to learn the right techniques to avoid twisting her spine for a few weeks. And I'll learn how to change the dressing on her incision.

We're expecting a return visit over the weekend from Cassandra, Gordon, and Nate, so that will be a great lift. (It sounds as if you folks track Nate's every move, so I thought I'd give you another installment.)

All for now. Thanks again!
