Going home! ...for a week perhaps

Hey everyone!


I just got the word that I WILL be going home tomorrow! I'll only get about a week or so off and then I have to come back to the hospital for more treatment, but I have been looking forward to getting out of here for awhile now. It's been a long month, but I am going to enjoy every single second I spend outside of the hospital.


The nurses and doctors have been setting me up with all of my prescription drugs and filling out all of my release paperwork to ensure that I go home tomorrow. I'll be able to watch the NFC Championship game from home after all!


I've got a lot of packing to do and stuff so I will talk to you all later and thank you so much for all of your support!
