Howdy everyone!!

Woo hoo!!

As I wrote to a few of you this morning, I made my escape from the hospital last night. LOL! Seriously, I just couldn’t stand being cooped up any longer so went home “for dinner” but didn’t go back. Called them at 10:00 PM (after the curfew) and told them I wanted to be discharged immediately. ‘Twas fine by them (seeing as how I broke the rules).

Called again this morning to confirm and they told me to come pick up my things and settle the bill.

Woo hoo! I’m hoooome!

Only had six more therapy sessions scheduled anyway. Didn’t see any need to be cooped up in the hospital for nearly another week for that. And I’m paying $148.00 per day co-pay for that (including weekend days). I think I can contract for home therapy for that.

Got to where I couldn’t stand eating their bland hospital food anymore. No salt, no pepper, no fat. No taste, but bad taste. Hadn’t eaten anything but ice cream, jello and milk for two days and had a terrible tummy ache and a hard knot in my belly. All that went away as soon as I got home and sent Chris out for an order of the most harmful food possible, Chinese. Ate my fill of won ton soup and pork fried rice. Mmmm... mmmm good. And that’s when I made the final decision to just stay home.

It’s so great to be home.

Thank God Almighty!

Free at last!

Sitting here all morning with tears of joy and gratitude streaming down my face. Slept in my own hospital bed last night, but the mattress is too soft, making it very difficult to sit up and move around. Will start looking today for a firmer mattress. Got up in the middle of the night and crawled back into my new powerchair. It has very comfortable cushions and a power recline feature. Threw a lap blanket over myself, reclined the chair and slept like a baby. Slept in late this morning. Got up and made myself a cup of coffee, (ignoring my FR duties, sorry) went out into my own back yard to enjoy the sunshine and cool morning air and offer thanks to God.

I’m so happy to be home. Looking forward to the next phase of life.

Praise God!

Next I’ve got to see about getting hand controls installed on my van so I can stay independent. Just can’t stand thought of not being able to jump into my van and go somewhere if need be.

With much love and gratitude to you all for your support and prayers.

God bless,

Jim

I've discovered the best bed on the planet ... I built it.

Make a 1 X 8 frame for the size mattress you want.

I bought a queen sized ... AIR MATTRESS

That's right, you heard me.

Here's the comfort ..

I got a memory foam pad from walmart for 100 bucks.

Put that on top (with a blanket or two between air matt and the pad to prevent sweating)

Blow it up to your "sleep number"

Play with the pressure and you'll sleep like a baby


Welcome home, bro.

And I’m paying $148.00 per day co-pay for that (including weekend days)...local hospital tried to pull the same thing with my wife a few years back - wanted her to stay over the weekend because the machine they were going to use for a heart test wasn't working - she told 'em she'd come back the next week for the test and signed out AMA - sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do - welcome home!

Way to go! Self-discharges, besides the glorious freedom, give the additional thrill of having escaped. Time to wave a sword and exalt the triumph!

It's too bad this happened before January 1, when ObamaCare kicks in. Then, on that day, all health care will be FREE, and everything will be hunky-dory, and unicorns will be flying through the air farting rainbows and sparkles! WHEEEEEEE!!!!!!!
