Blue Jeans

It's 10:00 am and I'm sitting here in my street clothes (including real shoes) waiting to be released. Not that release is necessarily imminent (no doctors have signed off on this), but I'm determined to walk out of here today, sooner rather than later. I will not spend another night in this hospital.

My daughter is flying in today, and she has offered to come here and cry on my behalf. I don't think this will be necessary. My blood counts are still in the doldrums, and I have no idea if I've achieved remission or not, but I'm otherwise okay. My only complaints are all directly related to my incarceration: lack of sleep; poor diet; lack of exercise; mental stress.

Hi Pat,

It is a glorious day to step outside and "get on down the road" back to East Greenwich and your home. I am keeping my fingers and toes crossed that you achieve your goal.

Hi there,

Thought it was about time that I sent you a comment, having been kept up to date with your blog. I'm better at direct emails, still catching up with this other new-fangled stuff like Facebook, but I figure I should learn before my girls all get into it.

Hope that you're enjoying home now, and your visit from Mariel. I'm thinking of you, and rooting for your blood count from here in London.

So did you escape?..Hoping that no post today means that you have ridden of into the sunset in the direction of that Costa Rican beach..
