I'm baaaaaaack! Just got home about 1/2 hour or so ago.

God has always blessed me with the ability to heal pretty quickly and I actually feel better than I ever imagined I would only 5 days post-op! My docs totally rock and did a fantastic job! I don't have the raccoon eyes I had the last time I had my head carved like a pumpkin and when I woke up from the surgery, the ventilator was out! I remember the first thing I did when I opened my eyes was to put my hand to my mouth to see if the vent was in and was so relieved that it wasn't! I have 36 staples across the top of my head and have a PICC line inserted in my right arm above the elbow to get the antibiotic infusions from the home care nurse over the next 2 days. Eric already told you all about the insurance company BS. In a week or so, I should have a lot of my strength back and believe me - they're going to be hearing from me and it aint gonna be purty.

Presby is a great hospital and other than the bitch of a charge nurse on the first unit I was on, the staff was just awesome! She and I went round and round the 2nd night I was there because she tried to refuse me one of my regular meds that I noticed they hadn't given me. My roommate did nothing but snore loud enough to wake the dead and I hadn't slept in 2 days/nights so I told this charge nurse that I didn't care if they put me under a rock, a bridge, the hospital foundation - I wanted off that unit pronto because I needed to SLEEP!!!!! When I got transferred up to the 8D unit the following day, I was so pleasantly surprised that a couple of the nurses were still there from when I was a patient in that unit 7 years ago and it was a great reunion! They took excellent care of me though they knew from the last time I was there that I am pretty self-sufficient. Best nursing staff on the planet!

It's great to be home! I can't thank all of you enough for your prayers and well wishes - I am convinced that God heard your prayers and mine. You are very special people and I am so blessed to have your friendships!

HUGE thank you's to Gary for holding down the fort so well while I was out and to XT for being there and keeping you all updated! Thank you to all who I had the pleasure of speaking with on the phone - it was great to hear your voices and all of the encouragement you gave me!

I will be on and off the board the next couple of days, as I have to rest and try not to overdo it. I have really missed this place and all of the truly wonderful people who are Steelers Fever! See ya all soon!

Love,
Marianne

Welcome back Marianne!!! So glad to see you up and around!

Take it easy - we can handle the Patriot trolls.

Rest up! I'm praying for a quick and speedy recovery.

Be Blessed,
