In a prayer update that my mom sent about my status, she asked, “Have you ever known anyone to leave ICU to go HOME?”
Here’s another one to try on for size … upon getting my go-ahead for discharge from the doctor, my nurse said, “Forgive me if I have to look this over again, we don’t get to do this very often.”
Talk about a reality check.
This time last week, I was thinking about what to do on my vacation…I’m now thinking how grateful I am to be alive. Talk about drinking a huge glass of perspective to wake you up in the morning!
[and thanks again, my wonderful little community. I’m still getting such encouraging notes and messages from all of you! You’re amazing!]
I have NO IDEA what any of this means, besides “Cathi, you get to go home now”…and that was good enough for me!
