So the good news is I'm most likely going home this Friday, October 16th. YAY!!!!! I've been in the hospital for essentially 3 months--2 months this time, and 1 month before with 2 days in between. Actually, Megan and I were talking the other day and realized I've been hospitalized far more this year than I've been home. The longest I've been home was the 6 weeks between being at Mercy Hospital and coming to the University of Minnesota. Other than that, it's been a week here, and a week there, usually with 2 - 4 weeks of hospitalization in between.
Someone asked what I was going to do when I got home. The first thing I said was I was going to hug my kids. I managed to see them a couple times while here these two weeks, and I miss them incredibly. Beyond that, I don't know. I guess I'll play it by ear. I'll probably take a nap on my couch, play some games on my Xbox, and catch up on all the tv I missed while here.
I want to thank all of you once again for your support, love, prayers, cards, phone calls, food, and everything else. Megan and I are so blessed to have you all rooting for us. Last weekend, the entire Dakotas Annual Conference prayed for us as Bishop Ough prayed for the fixing of appointments. Imagine that. 500 some Dakotas Methodists all praying for me and my family. As painful and difficult as this last year has been, I have never felt more blessed.
Have a great day, all you amazing people. God has blessed you today. Don't waste it.
