What up?

Howdy y'all,

It's been quiet 'round here lately as I've been resting and recuperating. I've been feeling stronger every day and will shortly be leaving for my first follow-up medical appointment. Three different doctors related to my hospitalization will be seeing me in the near future, as well as a new primary care provider I've just chosen to help me more seriously manage my unique healthcare needs, which I have to admit I'd been avoiding recently.

Today, it's the attending physician, a neurosurgeon with big credentials who was overseeing my situation in the ICU on a daily basis. His students followed him on his daily visit and he is quite a character. A few days before I was discharged he came in and looked me in the eye smiling. "Heaven can wait!" He looked genuinely happy as he told me I was out of danger now and would be able to go home soon. I shook his hand really hard and thanked him. Today, I expect him to ask me how I'm feeling and I'm ready to tell him, "strong enough to kick your ass for calling me a wimp!" I've grown to admire him over the course of my time in the ICU and look forward to talking to him today.

Next week, I have appointments with my new primary provider and with the neurosurgeon who performed what I consider to be a miraculous procedure that saved my life a few weeks ago – I can't wait to thank him for doing what he does so well and for being there that day for me.

In January, I'll be following up with a consulting physician who also saw me daily in the hospital. He's a neurologist who I asked to see soon to answer general questions I'm sure to have as I continue to recover. He should be helpful.

Kim will be home soon to get me to today's appointment. The adventure continues – thanks for stopping by...;~))
