Ah, it's so great to be home. I get to sleep with my hubby and get some peace and quiet. The nurses were great on the 7th floor but it's a very busy floor. I am already fully capable of going to the bathroom on my own, showering, climbing stairs, sleeping on my side. This recovery is nothing compared to recovery from the LVAD. I was in the hospital for three weeks following the LVAD surgery and when I got home I still couldn't do most things. I think the worst part of this recovery is that I have to tell myself to sit down and relax! I know, don't push it. I find myself wandering aimlessly just so I can move around.
I would like to send a sincere thank you to all of my readers. All your comments have lifted my spirits and helped the recovery time pass a little quicker.
It's hard to believe that I just had a heart transplant. It's all uphill from here!
I'm sure some of you are wondering about the Global segment. For those that don't know, Global 16x9 was in the OR during my surgery and will be doing a follow-up story soon. I haven't been told when it will air but I will share the date when I find out. We will be doing another interview at some point this month and they should know the air date at that time.
